From HEIDENHAIN Corporation, comes an opportunity to view its products for machine tools at this year's IMTS 2012 Show in Chicago at McCormick Place (September 10-15). Expected at the show are stages set for a HEIDENHAIN campaign titled Accuracy: The Inside Story that promises to give visitors insight into significant motion control issues. This includes important news and updates shared at the company booth (booth #E-5224) as well as opportunities to hear from HEIDENHAIN experts during various speaking engagements. More information on this will be available closer to show time.
Product highlights at the booth include HEIDENHAIN's touch probes, as well as the North American introduction of the TNC 640 control, HEIDENHAIN's first milling control offered with optional turning enabling it to perform multi-operation machining. Just as with all other TNC controls, the user only needs to enter all the programming steps for turning operation in plain language, just as he does for milling. Also with the TNC 640 is the optimized user interface, which gives the user greater transparency during programming, presents functions better and displays status information more clearly. The TNC 640 also introduces a stainless steel control design and a specially prepared keyboard surface and screen frame to eliminate fingerprints.
Also to be introduced at the show are HEIDENHAIN's TS 460 and TT 460, the first touch probes that enable the user to transmit the trigger signal either over infrared or radio waves without having to change the touch probe. This gives the users the benefits of a very wide transmission range (radio) and fast signal transmission (infrared).
At IMTS, HEIDENHAIN will introduce other motion control products from its varying lines, as well as showcase those already well established by HEIDENHAIN in the industry. Products from ACU-RITE, a HEIDENHAIN sister company, will also be in this IMTS booth featuring their market-leading DRO systems as well as the 3500i, an exciting touch screen CNC mill control now available to the market.
