LIP, LIF Exposed Linear Encoders

Accuracy grades better than ±3 μm

 

 

 

Exposed Linear Encoders

Exposed Linear EncoderExposed linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN operate with no mechanical contact between the scanning head and the scale or scale tape. Typical areas of application for these encoders include measuring machines, comparators and other precision devices in linear metrology, as well as production and measuring equipment, for example in the semiconductor industry.

 

The exposed linear encoders of the LIP and LIF types are characterized by small measuring steps together with high accuracy. The measuring standard is a phase grating applied to a substrate of glass or glass ceramic.

 

LIP and LIF encoders are typically used for:

The LIDA exposed linear encoders are specially designed for high traversing speeds up to 10 m/s, and are particularly easy to mount with various mounting possibilities. Steel scale tapes, glass or glass ceramic are used as carriers for METALLUR graduations, depending on the respective encoder.

 

LIDA exposed linear encoders are typically used for:

POSITIP, ND Position Display Units

For up to 6 axes

 

Positip NDA digital readout (DRO) consists of one or more linear encoders for traverse measurement and a display unit for position values.

 

DROs are typically fitted or retrofitted on machine tools such as milling, drilling and boring machines lathes, electrical discharge machines, grinding machines and measuring machines.

 

FEATURES:

POSITIP, ND Position Display Units

For up to 6 axes

 

Positip ND200Due to their performance range, the position display units of the ND 200 series are predestined for measuring and inspection stations, but are also intended for simple positioning tasks such as infeed for a circular saw or the stroke of press travel. The switching inputs and outputs of the ND 287 permit operation also in simple automated environments. A large graphic TFT monitor displays the measured values, the status and the soft-key row.

 

FUNCTIONS:

The standard position display ND 280 provides the basic functions for simple measuring tasks. The ND 287 features numerous functions for measuring, processing and statistically evaluating positions, for example sorting and tolerance check mode, minimum/maximum value storage, and measurement series storage. These data make it possible to calculate mean values and standard deviations and display them in histograms or control charts. With its modular design, the ND 287 permits optional connection of a second encoder for sum/difference measurement or of an analog sensor, for example for temperature compensation.

iTNC 530 Contouring Control

For milling, drilling, boring machines and machining centers

 

iTNC 530HEIDENHAIN TNCs are versatile, featuring both shop-floor programming, and offl ine programming, and are therefore ideal for automated production. They handle simple milling tasks just as reliably as the iTNC 530, for example, can perform high speed cutting—with especially low-jerk path control—or 5-axis machining with swivel head and rotary table.

 

TNC part programs have long lives because they are upwardly compatible. Programs from older TNCs can also run on the new models. When moving up to a moreadvanced TNC, the user merely builds on what he already knows.

 

The iTNC 530 from HEIDENHAIN is a versatile, workshop-oriented contouring control for milling, drilling and boring machines as well as machining centers. It features an integrated digital drive control with integrated inverter, which enables it to produce a highly accurate workpiece contour while machining at high velocity. The iTNC 530 controls up to 13 axes and spindle. The block processing time is 0.5 ms. A hard disk serves as program memory medium. The iTNC 530 hardware option with two processors additionally features the Windows XP operating system as a user interface, enabling the use of standard Windows applications.
