LG Motion has been appointed an official Encoder Distributor for Heidenhain (GB). The agreement consolidates the close working relationship that the two companies have enjoyed over several years whereby LG Motion has built Heidenhain's precision position encoders and measurement equipment into standard and customised positioning and motion control systems.
Heidenhain relies on its specialist distributors to provide expertise across many of its market areas including machine tools, metrology, motion control and automated machinery. Its Encoder Distributors are carefully selected to provide an integration service for products relating to motion control, adding value to Heidenhain's wide range of precision encoders for high-accuracy linear, rotary and angular position measurement. Linear encoders with accuracy specifications from the micron to sub-micron level and rotary encoders with accuracy down to seconds of arc are typically built into motorised positioning tables and stages - providing the fundamental position and speed-related feedback used in high-performance servo positioning systems.
Encoder Distributors benefit from rigorous product training and detailed technical support to ensure that Heidenhain's products built into custom and standard positioning systems meet completely the specification requirements for each application.
Stuart Jenkins of Heidenhain (GB) states: "We are very pleased to appoint LG Motion Ltd as an Encoder Distributor. Having worked with LG Motion for a number of years we know that the expertise and enthusiasm they offer, along with in-house manufacturing capability, will be of great benefit to users of our position measurement products."
LG Motion designs and manufactures standard linear and rotary positioning stages for medium- to high-precision applications in manufacturing, test, research and development, and scientific markets, working closely with world-class suppliers of motors, drives and motion controls to provide complete systems. LG also offers a custom design service to accommodate standard products or new designs within multi-axis and gantry configurations, complete with machine bases and frames.
