Heidenhain Corporation: For When There is No Room for Error

Headquartered in Shaumburg, Illinois, Heidenhain Corporation is a premier designer and manufacturer of numerical controls and drive technology for machine tools. Founded in 1889 as a metal etching factory, Heidenhain’s modern product line includes digital length gauges, linear scales, rotary and angular encoders, digital readouts, CNC controls, and machine inspection equipment. Today, the company operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Traunreut, Germany-based Dr. Johannes Heidenhain GmbH—a global producer of precision measurement and control equipment.The company’s extensive product portfolio includes:

  • 12 million rotary and angle encoders
  • 5 million linear encoders
  • 470 thousand position displays
  • 240 thousand TNC controls
Offering highly accurate readings over long ranges, Heidenhain length gauges are produced in a variety of lengths—12 millimeters, 25 millimeters, 30 millimeters, 60 millimeters, and 100 millimeters. Built to withstand a harsh industrial environment, Heidenhain length gauges are ideal for applications calling for comparative measurements, such as in series production. Just last month, Heidenhain Corporation released the brand new TNC 640 control. The TNC 640 is the company’s first milling machine control to be designed with optional turning functions. By using Heidenhain’s TNC 640 control, a client can quickly transition from Milling to Turning cycles in the same program—making it a cost-efficient solution. Just like conventional milling operations already in use, the TNC 640 can be programmed in plain text. Built out of stainless steel, the TNC 640 is fitted with a specially prepared keyboard surface and display to prevent fingerprints from tarnishing the device. Due to its comprehensive turning cycles, the TNC 640 is ideal for frequently repeated operations like thread cutting, roughing, and recessing.
