Heidenhain has appointed CIM Technologies as an authorized distributor because of our extensive experience with CNC machinery. We offer CNC retrofit services on large milling machines nationwide.We can install, service, repair or replace any Heidenhain or Acu Rite component.. Anilam, which has been part of the Heidenhain umbrella of companies for 15 years was recently closed. Limited support for these products remains. Acu Rite offers a number of replacements for Anilam DRO and CNC which have exceeded their service life.

Heidenhain’s reliable CNC drives and motors will fit any precision machine tool. Acu Rite’s new G-2 cnc retrokit is available to fit many brands and models of Knee type milling machines and several bed types including Bridgeport, Acer, Acra, Wells Index and many others. The G-2 retrokit can be either 2 or 3 axes and comes complete with ballscrews, motors, drives, motor mounts, linear encoders, pre wired electrical cabinet, and operator panel.

Heidenhain has produced high accuracy position measuring systems, gauges, metrology and CNC components for precision machine tools, automated machines and production systems since 1947. Our reliable CNC’s, drives, motors and position feedback devices fit any precision machine tool. Heidenhain linear, rotary and angular feedback devices have become the world standard for accuracy in motion controlled feedback solutions.

Heidenhain manufactures the following products at Traunreut, Germany:

  • Angle Encoders-absolute & incremental.
  • CNC – 2 to 14 axes.
  • Digital readout systems (DRO).
  • Digital servo and spindle drives with associated electronics.
  • Digital servo and spindle motors.
  • Encoder diagnostic systems and interface electronics.
  • Length Gauges-Absolute and incremental.
  • Linear Encoders -absolute & incremental in glass and steel.
  • Magnetic linear and rotary encoders.
  • Rotary Encoders-absolute & Incremental.
  • Touch Probes (contact, ultrasonic and infrared).

All Heidenhain measuring products are built around the concept of precision graduations in a process invented by Heidenhain and is a decisive factor in the function and accuracy of encoders and length gauges. These devices are resistant to mechanical and chemical influences as well as to vibration and shock. All measuring devices are calibrated to a NIST standard and have a defined thermal behavior that completes every consideration affecting the accuracy and consistency of your manufacturing measurement needs.
