DRO & Measuring Systems
Digital Readout Systems & Linear Encoders allow you to obtain high levels of precision and repeatability. This gives your machining and automation a clear advantage where it matters most.

HNC are authorised and approved specialists for all aspects of DRO sales & service, and the repair of Heidenhain DRO and measuring systems.

Heidenhain Digital Readouts
Heidenhain is the world leader in Digital Readout Systems, renowned for their ease of operation and user friendliness. The benefits include increased productivity and reduced operator fatigue.
They are designed to fit any type of machine ranging from conventional lathes and milling machines to more specialised applications with traverse lengths up to 30 metres covered! HNC are one of the UK’s leading DRO suppliers having supplied many thousands of systems.

“A digital readout from Heidenhain will save you valuable time.
You can read the exact tool position at all times. This reduces
machine idle time while preventing scrap and reworking."

Heidenhain linear encoders for accurate positioning
Heidenhain Digital Readouts work with Heidenhain linear encoders, which are renowned for high accuracy and reliability. The linear encoders are sensors that directly record the movement of the axis slide and convert it into electrical measuring signals. These signals are evaluated by the display, which shows traverse paths and accurate positions as numerical values. Backlash in machine transfer elements does not affect the accuracy of the display.
