Development and Production at HEIDENHAIN

The HEIDENHAIN headquarters, in Traunreut in southeastern Germany, is characterized by a high vertical range of production. The largest share of encoders and control hardware is developed, manufactured and assembled here. The interfaces for encoders and the software for the controls are also designed, programmed and tested in Traunreut.

The high quality of HEIDENHAIN products presupposes special production facilities and measuring equipment. For example, the masters and submasters for scale manufacturing are produced in a clean-room building, with special measures for temperature stabilization and vibration insulation, built especially for this purpose. The copying machines and the machines required for the manufacture and measurement of linear and circular graduations are also developed and built by HEIDENHAIN.
