Encoders for reliable processes: a solution for every axis
Angle and linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN and AMO offer an optimal solution for every application. Whether it’s a sealed RCN or LC, a modular ECM 2000, a drum solution for mid-sized diameters, or a scale-tape solution for large diameters, process reliability and positioning accuracy are perfectly matched to the application.
Optimized optics reduce the need for sealing air, thereby reducing the CO2 footprint by up to 99%

Optimal Linear Measurement for High-Accuracy Workpieces
Reduced system cost and higher machine availability
The new LC generation lets the machine manufacturer significantly reduce the complexity of the sealing air supply. Thanks to fewer parts and air lines, as well as easier installation, costs are saved. A more streamlined system also benefits the machine operator, providing greater process reliability and requiring considerably less maintenance.
For many years the LB 382 sealed linear encoder set the standard for machine tools with long axes. Its successor, the LB 383C, is now here, combining the strengths of its predecessor with technologies ready for the future. For example, measuring lengths of up to 72 m are still possible, but now with significantly improved scanning that enables much more productive controller parameters.
New diagnostic capabilities with the AMO rotational speed sensor
The new rotational speed sensor from AMO collects a spindle's operating data for offline analysis. It delivers the requisite high dynamic performance and functional safety along with easy installation and wide tolerances for installation and operation. Discover new horizons for more extensive spindle diagnostics.
The ECM 2000 series angle encoders boast a compact design with a variety of drum shapes and sizes that make cable routing and tight installation spaces easy to handle. High rotational speeds are permissible in both continuous and reciprocating operation, and contamination tolerance is high thanks to magnetic scanning. The ECM 2000 is ideal for harsh shopfloor conditions.
Inductive modular angle encoders from AMO feature a modular design and a wide range of options for axis integration. They also make encoder solutions possible for specialized applications, such as extremely large axis diameters or harsh conditions.
