Linear Encoders for Numerically Controlled Machine Tools
Sealed linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN are protected from dust, chips and splash fluids and are ideal for operation on machine tools.
Sealed linear encoders are available with
The aluminum housing of a HEIDENHAIN sealed linear encoder protects the scale, scanning carriage, and its guideway from chips, dust, and fluids. Downward-oriented elastic lips seal the housing. The scanning carriage travels along the scale on a lowfriction guide. It is connected to the external mounting block by a coupling that compensates unavoidable misalignment between the scale and the machine guideways.
