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.

Multi-Tasking: Is it Right for Your Shop?

For manufacturers looking to achieve that competitive edge, you can do no better than a multi-tasking machine. They eliminate the need for separate milling and turning machines, multiple set-ups and, most importantly, they improve productivity.

The Rules of X-Ray Micro CT (and When to Break Them)

Offer the term “metrology equipment” to a group of industrial or manufacturing engineers in a word-association test and it's highly likely CMM (coordinate measuring machine) would be the response.
