HEIDENHAIN's New Compact Magnetic Encoders Fit Many Applications

SCHAUMBURG, IL - (September 2008) - In order to expand the usefulness of HEIDENHAIN's sturdy modular magnetic encoders, the new ERM 2400 series is introduced. This series features more compact dimensions than the current ERM 200, already commonly used on C axes in lathes, and can be used at higher rotational speeds. This makes it useful in more applications such as in spindles for milling...
