Comparator & Measuring Systems

HEIDENHAIN’s measuring systems for inspection and acceptance testing of machine tools enable precise and effective measurements of machines with a minimum of mounting and adjustment effort. Machine tool performance that includes factors such as compliance to tolerances and surface definition, is determined by the dynamic and static accuracy of machine movement. For precision machining it is therefore important to measure and compensate for motional deviations.

HEIDENHAIN offers measuring systems for direct capture of both dynamic and static deviations. Machine tool builders use the results of machine measurements to develop effective ways to improve accuracy. Machine tool users can use the measuring systems for acceptance testing and regular accuracy inspection of their machine.
