Linear kit encoder series with high mounting tolerances
Heidenhain's LIC 2100 absolute linear kit encoder series is designed to serve applications that require high mounting tolerances and reliability.
Heidenhain's LIC 2100 absolute linear kit encoder series is designed to serve applications where very high mounting tolerances and reliability are more important than maximum accuracy. This makes the LIC 2100 encoder useful in the electronics, automation, medical technology and metrology industries, as well as in the machine tool sector. The encoder graduation consists of only one track on a stainless steel tape, which is an absolute track, and provides an encoder resolution to 50 nm. The tape can also be mounted two different ways, either directly to the machine surface with a specially engineered adhesive film, or inserted into an aluminum extrusion, which is also adhered to the machine surface. The scanning units output to the Endat 2.2 interface, and allow speeds up to 10 m/s. The longest measuring lengths available are up to 6020 mm.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
