Heidenhain Corporation offers a variety of metrology products ranging from in-process fixture inspection equipment requiring multiple gaging configurations, to 2D and 3D inspection machine encoders and digital readouts.

Gaging and inline process inspection products include the company’s Specto, Metro and Acanto series of length gages, which are designed to provide a high level of repeatability and reproducibility to collect reliable data. When connected to either Heidenhain’s Gage Chek ND2100G or the MSE1000 multiplexor, go/no-go relay signals can be sent directly to a PLC, and data can be exported cleanly to Excel. These products are suited for inspection processes that require dedicated fixturing of the manufactured parts and custom applications.

Heidenhain’s piece-part inspection products include the ND series of digital readouts for applications requiring simple, intuitive dimensional inspection, and the IK 5000 Quadra-Check software/hardware system for those that require a PC-based solution. This PC-based solution is suited for manual and automated 2D and 3D measuring tasks, and is said to be particularly useful on multiple-probe-, video- and touch-probe-based CMMs, as well as optical comparators.
