Machine tools

Products from HEIDENHAIN, along with its AMO, ETEL, and RSF brands, are used in a variety of machining equipment.
Milling and turning machines top the list, joined by machines for grinding, EDM, laser cutting, waterjet cutting, sheet-metal bending, and 3D printing.

Rotary encoders, angle encoders, and linear encoders position rotary and linear axes with extreme accuracy. Grid encoders and touch probes measure the machine, workpiece, or tool. Motors, drives, and controller technology accurately and dynamically move axes and tools along the desired path. Milling and turning controls provide the shopfloor user with exceptional support in solving a wide variety of machining challenges.
