Heidenhain angle encodersClick image to enlargeHeidenhain has released smarter and faster versions of its RCN absolute angle encoders series for use in machine tools requiring high speed, accuracy and contamination resistance. 

The new models RCN 2001, 5001 and 8001 are especially useful with fast rotating axes and direct-drive motors because the permissible speeds are up to three times higher than other RCN encoders.

When paired with an EIB 5211 sensor box, these new RCN encoders will transfer the temperature of the encoder and a direct-drive motor to the control so the operator can push the system to its thermal load limits, increasing production and cost efficiency.

The scanning performance of the new RCN has also been optimized so that any liquid contamination or condensation that enters the encoder will not affect the operation of this encoder which equates to less machine downtime due to encoder failures.

With these recent improvements made to the new RCN encoders, they are ideal for aerospace, medical and turning applications. These applications require highly accurate positioning and high speeds.

Collet holders for better surface roughness, tool life

NT USA Corp.'s HDZ collet holders improve collet holder accuracy and increase tool life, says the manufacturer.

High-precision touch sensor

High-precision metalworking tooling manufacturer BIG KAISER has introduced the Base Master Red, a high-precision touch sensor that rapidly determines workpiece offsets and tool lengths, and the Base Master Mini, a thin, compact tool offset sensor.

Wind turbine manufacturing solutions

Soraluce specializes in the development of advanced solutions for manufacturing structural parts for wind turbines.

Bandsaw with increased cutting output

The new Behringer HBE Dynamic Series bandsaws use a high torque, frequency controlled blade drive motor. The specialized gearing in the drive is engineered to produce the blade power and speed needed to achieve fast cutting and peak throughput rates. Because the drive is low horsepower and energy efficient, power consumption is reduced while energy savings and high production are realized. The new saw is designed to meet a broad range of applications in the steel trade, mechanical engineering, tool making and in high-end metalworking shops.

Solid carbide universal drill

Walter Tools has released the DC160 X∙treme Evo Advance solid carbide universal drill.

Large diameter, high speed boring

The Wohlhaupter VolCut insert holder from Allied Machine and Engineering (AMEC) is part of a rough boring system engineered to remove large volumes of material at high speeds and light feed rates in just one cut.

Bar feeder for affordable part production automation

Haas Automation introduced its Servo Bar 300 bar feeder in 1999 and has launched the all new Haas Bar Feeder for what the company describes as a simpler and more affordable way to automate part production on Haas turning centres.
