DR. JOHANNES HEIDENHAIN GmbH, headquartered in Traunreut, Germany, develops and supports motion control feedback solutions for machine tool, semiconductor, electronics assembly and testing, metrology, automation, medical, energy and other global industries. 

Since 1889 we have maintained a continuous drive to provide technically superior products. In combination with reliability, closeness to the customer and a practice-oriented frame of mind form the basis of HEIDENHAIN’s efforts.

HEIDENHAIN has always sought a dialog with science and research on the one hand and with users and customers on the other. Our competence in the area of linear and angular metrology is reflected by a large number of customized solutions for users. These include the measuring and test equipment developed and built for many of the world’s standards laboratories and the angular encoders for various telescopes and satellite receiving antennas. The products in the standard HEIDENHAIN product program naturally profit from the knowledge gained in such projects.

The requirement for highest achievable quality refers not only to the final products, but also to all activities in our company. The high HEIDENHAIN quality standard has been confirmed by certification according to ISO 9001.

But quality isn’t everything. HEIDENHAIN also sets standards in environmental protection. Long life cycles and products designed for recycling and resource conservation and the sparing use of energy are prerequisites for environmental certification according to ISO 14001. Validation according to EMAS also affirms HEIDENHAIN’s sustained development efforts toward products that are lastingly economical, ecological and socially compatible.
