SCHAUMBURG, IL ‚â€“ HEIDENHAIN has expanded its LIDA 400 scales series to include a version that is sure to withstand temperatures that others cannot. This new LIDA 403 scale is now available with glass or glass ceramic (ROBAX‚Â®, ZERODUR‚Â®) as its graduation carrier for just this reason as its expansion coefficient makes it especially useful in varying temperatures all the while maintaining high accuracy.
HEIDENHAIN‚â€™s LIDA 400 series is traditionally based on a steel scale tape with a grating period of
20 ‚Âµm. This grating period holds true for the LIDA 403. The standard accuracy grade is ‚Â± 5‚Âµm with higher accuracies available upon request, covering measuring lengths from 240 to 3040 mm (ROBAX‚Â® up to maximum of ML 1640 mm).
The scanning head on the LIDA 403 will remain the same as others in the series. There is a reference mark at midpoint (distance-coded now available upon request).
The PRECIMET‚Â® adhesive film on the rear of the scale will ensure simple mounting.
