HEIDENHAIN's easy-to-use turning control with state-of-the-art features, TURNPWR control is a workshop-oriented turning control that enables the user to program conventional machining operations right at the machine in an easy-to-use conversational programming language. It is designed for turning machine tools with up to two axes.
TURNPWR was developed to satisfy the needs of lathe machinists, where manual and automated operation are both useful and needed. TURNPWR promises to enable the user to maximize throughput by significantly reducing set-up time, scrap, and other non-productive operations, thereby increasing efficiency, productivity, and profitability.
The well-known ACU-RITE conversational programming format for controls is a user-friendly method of writing part programs and included in the TURNPWR, however G-code (ISO) programming can also be used. Basic editing of G-code programs is also possible. On the TURNPWR, a 12.1-in. high-resolution display boasts a screen layout that is clearly arranged and user friendly. Preview graphics in the editor illustrate the individual machining steps for programming the contour as well as corresponding tool path generated using only dimensions pulled from a production drawing. It also accepts DXF files.
TURNPWR is a closed-loop system with positioning feedback provided by rotary encoders inside the motor assemblies. When fitted with the (optional) ACU-RITE precision glass scales (1 µm/0.00005 in. resolution), TURNPWR also includes Position-Trac, an advanced unique feature that enables the user to easily, quickly, and accurately re-establish workpiece zero after shutting down or power loss.
