The compact, small footprint positioning stage for closed loop voice coils can be ideal for closed loop positioning applications with a short stroke where intricate position, velocity, and acceleration control is necessary. A low moving mass allows for high accelerations of light payloads.
Understanding all the costs in pneumatic and electric actuators, and recognizing their very different capabilities, can save tens of thousands of dollars
Critical environment administrators must monitor indoor environments and collect data reliably in order to ensure materials are stored properly and compliance is maintained. This can prove challenging depending on the type of monitoring system currently in place. This white paper identifies many of the challenges faced by environment administrators on a daily basis and how a wireless environmental monitoring system can help to maintain data integrity and meet all compliance requirements.
HEIDENHAIN’s linear encoders with optical scanning increase the accuracy, speed stability and thermal behavior required by fast, precise direct drives.
HEIDENHAIN’s LIF 481 1Dplus linear encoder provides high resolution for positioning to the nanometer for the semiconductor industry.
HEIDENHAIN’s compact absolute length gauges for shop-floor measurement combine the benefits of incremental optical devices and absolute measured value acquisition.
How can product development teams regain control of the process and actually cut costs? Here are 10 areas on which to focus.
There is tremendous pressure on companies today to maintain output and quality while holding the line on, or reducing, operating costs. Cleaning tanks and reactors with high-pressure water jets, instead of sending personnel into confined spaces, is a proven way to assure productivity, safety, environmental responsibility, cost, and versatility personnel.

Select from HEIDENHAIN’s encoders for accuracy, position or velocity control and other attributes including speed stability, power loss and bandwidth.
HEIDENHAIN’s LIC 4000 compact linear encoder with EnDat serial interface provides improved position accuracy and speed control.
Today, machine and equipment manufacturers are feeling more pressure than ever to reducecosts without sacrificing machine performance and this balancing act can be difficult to achieve.Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) often overlook a simple solution that can have a positive,long-term impact on profitability for themselves and their customers: the elimination of bearinglubricant. By eliminating lubrication systems where possible, OEMs can reduce productioncosts, while at the same time making their equipment more marketable and less expensive to operatefor the end users.
The Executive Guide to Contract and Chargeback Management: How Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Smartly Automate to Strengthen ProfitabilityJune 8, 2011 12:35 pm | by CDC Software
Small and mid-sized pharmaceutical manufacturers are struggling to manage large group purchase organization (GPO) contracts, process heavy volumes of chargeback submissions and ensure pricing policies are fully compliant with regulatory requirements.
HEIDENHAIN’s EnDat interface is a digital, bidirectional interface for encoders. It provides everything needed to reduce system cost—per axis up to 50%.
