Heidenhain length gauges are manufactured for absolute position and incremental linear measurement.
Heidenhain length gauges are characterized by long measuring ranges and consistent high accuracy. They have a wide range of applications in production metrology, multipoint inspection stations, measuring and monitoring equipment and as position measuring devices. There are two basic types of length gauges: Absolute position measurement and incremental linear measurement. Both gauge types are characterized by:
- Large measuring rangesHeidenhain length gauges are available with measuring lengths of 12mm, 25mm, 30mm, 60mm, or 100mm.
- High accuracy applies over the entire measuring length from 10mm to 100mm, its actual dimension is always measured with the same high quality. In particular, Heidenhain-Certo length gauges provide high linear accuracy and offer resolution in the nanometer range.
