Heidenhain has a new one Milling machine control TNC developed to also be able to serve machines that offer both milling and turning functionality. As the first milling machine control, the TNC 640 is optionally equipped with functions for turning on milling machines. Thus, complete machining with the control systems of the provider can now be realized. All program steps for turning are programmed in plain text in the same way as used in milling.
The turning functionality was based on existing know-how: Many cycles that made the turning controls successful are now available in the new TNC 640. The user can thus access tried-and-tested turning functions. Another new feature of the TNC 640 is the optimized user interface, which gives the user a better overview when programming, shows the functions better and displays the status displays more clearly.
A new control design is introduced with the TNC 640. In the future, the TNC and also the "Manual plus" and "CNC Pilot" rotary controls will be delivered in a modern stainless steel design. The keyboard surface and screen frame have been prepared in such a way that finger tappers have no chance and cleaning is easy. The new 19-inch color flat screen, which is standard on the TNC 640 and optional on the ITNC 530, is striking.
With the touch probes, the TS 460 and TT 460 are the first devices to be presented in which the switching signal is transmitted either via infrared or radio transmission - without having to change devices. The user has the advantages of a very large range (radio) and fast signal transmission (infrared).
