HEIDENHAIN’s ACU-RITE-brand droPWR tablet digital readout system will be introduced at IMTS 2022 – booth 215600 – offering machinists a novel new way to access a Bluetooth-enabled reading of machine data and performance. The new droPWR is a first-of-its-kind system that allows an iPad® tablet to become a digital readout (DRO), doing everything an ACU-RITE DRO can do but without cables between tablet and machine tool.
Bluetooth technology along with an IBT interface box in the droPWR system make it possible to link to multiple machine configurations from one tablet, including for milling, turning, and grinding machines with up to six axes.
Designed to be simple and functional, this tablet DRO can be moved and used with various machines, making it perfect for many production environments such as small shops and students in shop class.
The new droPWR system includes the new software, an IBT interface box suitable for the machine tool and relevant encoders/brackets if needed. A tablet with iOS 15 or greater is required. And with its simple on-boarding configuration set up, a user can quickly establish connection to its intended machine(s).
The new droPWR elevates manual machining by combining the familiar intuitive user experience from the traditional ACU-RITE DROs with modern touchscreen conventions.
