Heidenhain Corporation, developers of precision measurement components and systems, will demonstrate its systems and devices for optimizing precision and heavy machining. The group’s range of products includes linear scales, rotary and angular encoders, digital readouts, digital length gages, CNC controls, and machine inspection equipment. At IMTS 2014, its demonstration will be presented on two stages with insights on “Dynamic Precision” and “Dynamic Efficiency.”
“Dynamic Precision” will include demonstrations of Heidenhain’s control solutions for efficient production of precisely machined workpieces with better surfaces, increased workpiece accuracy, and reduced machining times.
“Dynamic Efficiency” will include Heidenhain control solutions for heavy machining that optimizes machining time, increases the metal removal rate, and reduces wear on the machine.
A specific product highlight will be the TNC 640 control, Heidenhain’s newest high end milling control with milling/turning capability.
The TNC 640 includes a new design, improved 3-D program verification graphics, and “advanced Dynamic Prediction”, which guarantees calculation of the optimum speed for precise and smooth surfaces.
Also, one of the newest touch probes to be on displayed will be Heidenhain’s TS 460, the first touch probe that lets the user transmit the trigger signal over infrared or radio waves — without having to change the touch probe. This offers users the benefits of a very wide transmission range (radio) and fast signal transmission (infrared).
