HEIDENHAIN

  • Digital Readout Systems and Interface Electronics

  • It’s understood that applications from machine tools to measuring microscopes contain some error in the accuracy of moving components when compared to a known standard.

Digital readout systems (or position display units) and interface electronics from HEIDENHAIN and ACU-RITE can address these issues—offering increased accuracy and quality control in myriad applications:

  • ACU-RITE readout systems use a function called Position-Trac™ that enables quick, easy workpiece zero-reset after power loss.

  • Both linear and non-linear error compensation, up to ±99999 ppm (parts per million), can be entered into the readout.

  • With the greater positioning accuracy of the system, the inherent accuracy of the machine is used in full, and the likelihood of errors is greatly reduced.

  • ACU-RITE readout systems use a function called Position-Trac™ that enables quick, easy workpiece zero-reset after power loss.

  • Both linear and non-linear error compensation, up to ±99999 ppm (parts per million), can be entered into the readout.

  • With the greater positioning accuracy of the system, the inherent accuracy of the machine is used in full, and the likelihood of errors is greatly reduced.

For machine tool operators, the benefits of DROs are substantial:

  • The time the operator used to spend setting the coordinates for positioning is now spent machining more parts. This translates into greater operator efficiency and in turn, increased output.

  • The elimination of paper-and-pencil calculations for offsets or other dimensions that may not appear on the drawings.

  • A reduction in operator fatigue associated with counting hand wheel turns and straining to read verniers.

  • Digital measuring system makes training of new or less-experienced operators much easier and less time consuming.

HEIDENHAIN offers the right digital readout for every type of machine, including milling machines, lathes, grinding machines, drilling machines, and radial drilling machines. A splash-water-resistant front panel and a rugged cast-metal housing equip them to handle harsh ever day shop floor conditions.
