SRP 5000 angle encoder module with integrated drive motor

A high-precision rotary axis is an extremely complex construction. It is therefore simpler for you as a machine manufacturer to implement a highly integrated assembly with tested and specified properties instead of numerous separate components: now you have the SRP 5000 angle encoder module.

The SRP 5000 is a system solution that

  • integrates the bearing, encoder, and high-precision torque motor in one assembly
  • permits extraordinarily smooth motion control for high-precision positioning and measuring tasks
  • significantly relieves you with its design, mounting, and adjustment

The SRP 5000 angle encoder module with integrated drive motor is specially optimized for the stringent requirements of metrological applications. It features very high resolution and excellent repeatability, even when operating temperatures vary.

All individual components of the SRP 5000 come from the HEIDENHAIN Corporate Group. HEIDENHAIN manufacturers the bearings and the high-precision encoders for the angle encoder module, and ETEL supplies the torque motors including the AccurET controller. This close cooperation ensures the perfect coordination of the function groups

QUADRA-CHEK 2000 and QUADRA-CHEK 3000 evaluation units

HEIDENHAIN presents the new QUADRA-CHEK 2000 evaluation unit for daily measuring tasks regarding the inspection of finished parts with manual positioning. Measured-value acquisition takes place using profile projectors, measuring microscopes, and 2-D measuring machines via crosshairs or an optical edge detector. The QUADRA-CHEK 2000 displays the results of measurement in a graphical view on a touchscreen. Thanks to the intuitive operation, you can easily generate measurement reports in order to document your results. The QUADRA-CHEK 2000, with its rugged embedded design and compact housing, is absolutely suitable for a workshop and can be integrated in your company network without any problems.

Press release

The QUADRA-CHEK 3000 evaluation unit is available for measuring tasks using modern video tools. The various possibilities for acquiring measured values include both simple and intelligent tools, which acquire measured values quickly and objectively. With their aid you can also graphically represent the measured point cloud and the calculated geometrical element. In conjunction with Measure Magic, the automatic geometry recognition tool, you achieve high-precision automatic measurement of 2-D elements at the drop of a hat.

LIP 6000 linear encoder

The new LIP 6000 exposed linear encoder with interferential scanning permits determination of the position with excellent accuracy and permanently reliable signals, while having extremely compact dimensions. With its very small interpolation error of just ±3 nm, the low noise level of only 1 nm RMS, and a baseline error of less than ±0.175 µm in a 5-mm interval, the LIP 6000 is predestined for applications where very constant speed control or high position stability at a standstill is important.

The particular properties of the LIP 6000 in large part result from the new HSP 1.0 signal-processing ASIC from HEIDENHAIN. It ensures a consistently high quality of the scanning signals over the entire lifetime of the encoders. It does this by continuously monitoring the scanning signal. If the signal amplitude decreases, the HSP 1.0 readjusts it by increasing the LED current. The ensuing increase in the LED light intensity hardly affects the noise level in the scanning signals at all, even when there is a high degree of signal stabilization—quite contrary to systems in which the gain is made in the signal path. At the same time, the HSP 1.0 also ensures that the signal retains its original, ideal form, even if there is contamination.

Intelligent quality management already begins at your control

Together with HEXAGON, HEIDENHAIN shows how a machine tool can be networked via a HEIDENHAIN control using the new and intelligent quality-management system HxGN Smart Quality. This makes direct data exchange between the production and quality control possible. You complete the feedback loop between the production and inspection processes, and use the direct analysis for immediate optimizations in the machining process. Your advantages are higher quality and increased productivity.
