The Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center Research and Development (OMIC R&D) welcomed Heidenhain Corporation as its 33rd member. Heidenhain, whose U.S. subsidiary is headquartered in Schaumburg, IL, is a provider of encoders, machine controls, touch probes, digital readouts and metrology solutions.

Heidenhain’s products enable everything from improved manufacturing processes to safer, more reliable medical diagnostics.

Craig Campbell, executive director of OMIC R&D said, “I have been excited about the possibility of having HEIDENHAIN as a member since we first started the discussion at IMTS in 2018. Heidenhain is providing OMIC R&D with immediate data gathering capability, but their ability to assist OMIC R&D as we grow is tremendous. We also look forward to opportunities in the area of training and workforce development due to Heidenhain’s investment in that area.”

Gisbert Ledvon, director business development of Heidenhain, stated, "I am very excited that Heidenhain Corporation has become a member of OMIC R&D, as this collaboration aligns well with our dedication to research and development aimed at manufacturing technology. Our partnership will most definitely benefit the manufacturing sector in North America.”
