Digital Readouts for Manual Machine Tools
Digital readouts for manual machine tools increase your productivity. You save time, increase the dimensional accuracy of the finished workpiece and enjoy user friendly operation. It plays no role whether you have equipped a new or used machine with a digital readout. HEIDENHAIN digital readouts can easily be retrofitted to any model of machine or type of equipment, whatever the application and number of displayed axes. Practice-oriented functions and cycles are available for various applications. The distance-to-go display feature with graphic positioning aid allows you to approach the next nominal position quickly and reliably simply by traversing to a display value of zero. And POSITIP speeds up small-batch production—repetitive machining sequences can be saved as a program.
Precise manufacturing made easy: Together with linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN, the digital readouts measure the axis movements directly. The backlash caused by mechanical transfer elements such as lead screws, racks and gears therefore has no influence.
ND 500 Series | Simple position display unit for two and three axes
The position displays of the ND 500 series are suited for use on manually operated milling, drilling, boring machines and lathes with two or three axes. Due to the TTL encoder input, primarily the LS 328 and LS 628 linear encoders with a measuring step of 5 µm are used.
With its sturdy housing and splash-proof membrane keyboard, the ND 500 is built for the workshop. The ND 500 series shows display position values, the soft-key row and other useful information on a monochrome graphic screen.
The most important functions are available quickly and directly via function keys. Soft keys with clear information in the local language enable you to make entries that ﬁ t your momentary situation.
The distance-to-go display facilitates positioning tasks. You approach the next position quickly and reliably by simply moving until the display reads zero. The functions for each application are easily activated by parameter input. Special functions are available for producing hole patterns (linear patterns and circular patterns).
You can easily switch between radius and diameter display when the position display is conﬁgured for turning. On lathes with a separate top slide, the sum display feature of the ND 523 allows you to display the saddle and top slides together or separately. Setting datums on a lathe part is particularly easy with the freeze tool position function and subsequent retracting.
A USB interface enables the digital readout to transfer measured values and import or export parameters and tables.

Heidenhain: Position Display Units (ND 1200R)
ND 1200 R RADIAL-DRILL digital readout | Digital readouts for conventional and fast radial drilling machines
The ND 1200 R RADIAL-DRILL digital readout is an easily operated, powerful position readout for conventional and fast radial drilling machines. Machine movement is measured by a linear encoder on the radial arm and a rotary encoder or a friction-wheel system on the column. An additional encoder on the sleeve can also be used to measure and display the drilling depth.
The ND 1200 R RADIAL-DRILL digital readout features a sturdy housing of die-cast aluminum and a splash-proof full-travel keyboard. The monochrome ﬂ at-panel graphic display shows position values, plain language dialog and prompts as well as graphic functions.
With the ND 1200 R digital readout, you can switch at any time between display in polar coordinates (radius R, angle ) and Cartesian coordinates (X, Y). With the aid of the probing functions you’ll ﬁnd the workpiece datum and orientation faster. One essential working aid is the function for positioning with the distance-to-go display: You type in the nominal position— i.e. the drilling coordinates—as X,Y values; the RADIAL-DRILL digital readout shows you the distance remaining to the target position as separate values for the angular and radial axes, which are therefore the machine coordinates. The ND 1200 R automatically calculates the positions when machining hole patterns such as bolt-hole circles and linear hole patterns, matrices or frames. The programming function of the ND 1200 R supports you when machining recurring workpieces and machining patterns.
The RS-232-C/V.24 and USB serial interfaces serve for saving programs and updating software.
Equipping a radial drill
The angular position of the radial arm is usually measured with a rotary encoder and friction wheel system or—for higher accuracy requirements—with an ROD angle encoder or rotary encoder. The drill head position and, if required, the spindle stroke are measured with LS linear encoders. The KT edge ﬁnder serves for an exact calibration of the machine and, if desired, to set up the workpiece.

Heidenhain: Evaluation Electronics (ND 2100 G GAGE-CHEK)
Evaluation Electronics for Metrological Applications
Evaluation Electronics for metrological applications offer numerous functions for measured data acquisition and statistical evaluation of measured values.
QUADRA-CHEK evaluation electronics for profile projectors, measuring microscopes, 2-D and video measuring machines as well as CMMs measure points on 2-D contours, depending on the version either automatically or manually by crosshairs, by optical edge detection or by video camera with real-time display of the live image and integrated image processing. For 3-D contours, such as planes, cylinders, cones and spheres, the measurement points are saved by probing with a touch probe.
In the optional CNC version, they also operate as full-fledged controls for axis positioning and can automatically execute measuring programs.
ND 2100 G GAGE-CHEK | The evaluation unit for multipoint inspection apparatuses
The ND 2100 G GAGE-CHEKs are versatile metrology displays for measuring and inspection tasks in manufacturing and quality assurance. With inputs for up to eight encoders, they are predestined for multipoint measurements from simple pass/fail detection up to complex SPC evaluation.
The ND 2100 G evaluation units have a robust, die-cast aluminum enclosure, and a keyboard suited to their environment. A large, graphic, color screen displays the measured values, the soft-key row and other information.
The inputs can be assigned and combined as desired with mathematical, trigonometric or statistical formulas. This makes it possible to measure even complex dimensions such as thickness, ﬂatness, volume and more. The results are displayed numerically or graphically as a color bar graph or a dial, or archived for statistical process control (SPC). The GAGE-CHEK can be conﬁgured for basic or advanced applications. Soft keys and hot keys can be adapted as required. The minimum/maximum function of the ND 2100 G evaluation unit monitors and stores the highest and lowest measured or calculated value. Warning and tolerance limits can be assigned to each display value. Results outside of the tolerance are marked with a different color. An acoustic alarm sounds simultaneously. Tolerance values, SPC parameters and custom formulas are stored for individual parts. GAGE-CHEK can thus manage up to 100 parts with up to 16 visible and 16 invisible measurands. The rapid acquisition of measurement data makes the monitoring of dynamic events, such as the eccentricity of a rotating shaft, possible.
The GAGE-CHEK features various interfaces for communicating with parent systems:
RS-232-C/V.24 for PCs, also for remote operation of the GAGE-CHEK
The display values appear in large, easy-to read numbers. Values outside the tolerance are color-coded, immediately notifying you of errors.
You can select to have the values shown as a color-enhanced vertical or horizontal bar graph. The deﬁned warning limits and tolerance limits provide instant feedback. If these limits are exceeded, the color of a bar changes from green to yellow or red, informing you explicitly of critical dimensions.
SPC and Data Storage
GAGE-CHEK includes integrated SPC studies such as mean value charts (X bar) and range charts (R). Min, max, sigma, cp and cpk are also calculated, and are clearly displayed as a graph or histogram. Historical raw data can be saved in a tabular numeric display. Each dimension and all data are time and date stamped.
Formulas and Combinations
You can use mathematical and trigonometric formulas, as well as logical conditions, to combine individual measured values or measurement sequences with each other, and so create complex calculations. This can be used, for example, to calculate and display the circumference of a turned part, the volume of a cube, or the angle between two cams, and also to assign tolerance limits to these values.
