LG Motion appointed Heidenhain distributor
LG Motion has been appointed as an official 'Encoder Distributor' for Heidenhain (GB). The agreement consolidates the close working relationship that the two companies have enjoyed over several years where LG Motion has built the German manufacturers' 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. Encoder Distributors are carefully selected to provide an integration service for motion control related products, adding value to Heidenhain's wide range of precision encoders used for high accuracy linear, rotary and angle 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 Heidenhains' products built into custom and standard positioning systems completely meet the specification requirements for each application.
"We are very pleased to appoint LG Motion Ltd as an Encoder Distributor," says Stuart Jenkins of Heidenhain (GB) limited, "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, R&D and Science, working closely with world class suppliers for motors, drives and motion controls to provide complete system solutions. LG also offer a custom design service to accommodate standard products or new designs within multi-axis and gantry configurations complete with machine bases and frames.
