Infobase: search for products and documents

How to search

In the search field, please enter either the product name or the device ID from your ID label. The document ID, which is located on the back of the document, can be used as well. Please enter all of the numbers up to the first dash.

What you can find

This search function takes you directly to your product or to a list of product variants and their documents. Clicking on a product will take you to the product details page, where you'll find technical details and the CAD model. For measuring lengths of over 12 meters, the CAD model is available upon request. Other user documentation and free software for your product can be found in the filebase.


Information about substances of very high concern (SVHC) as per Article 33 of  Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council from December 18, 2006, for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) can be found for notifiable products as a PDF file in "Documents" within the given product entry.

Linear measurement

Sealed linear encoders

Sealed linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN keep dust, chips, and splash water at bay. Their high accuracy and resilience during axis acceleration make them an ideal solution for machine tools.

Exposed linear encoders

Exposed linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN are the ideal solution for electronics manufacturing and metrology applications that require highly accurate positioning or precisely defined motion.

Length gauges

Length gauges from HEIDENHAIN deliver high accuracy over the entire measuring range and are mechanically robust. They are ideal for production metrology and multi-gauging fixtures, and can also be used for position measurement or the inspection of measuring equipment.

Angular measurement

Machine tool control

Tool and workpiece setup and calibration

Workpiece touch probes

Workpiece touch probes from HEIDENHAIN provide setup, measurement, and inspection functionality within the machine tool, helping you reduce setup times, boost utilization rates, and improve dimensional accuracy.

Tool touch probes

Tool touch probes form HEIDENHIAN deliver efficient and reliable tool measurement capability, thereby reducing scrap, minimizing rework, reducing idle times, and boosting machining accuracy.

Camera systems

Camera systems from HEIDENHAIN enable in-process setup monitoring and tool-edge inspection, letting you detect incorrect workpieces and worn tools with speed and reliability.
