HEIDENHAIN is excited to release the newest software for the compact but versatile contouring control, the TNC 320. The TNC 320 sports three axes plus spindle with the possibility of adding an additional axis, and is the perfect control for universal milling, drilling and boring machines.
The new end-user functions / cycles now available through the new TNC 320 software include engraving, either in a straight line or on an arc. Also new manual probing cycles have been added as well as support for the latest HEIDENHAIN handwheels.
For the machine builder, it is now possible to encrypt part of the controls PLC partition in order to secure the machine manufacturers proprietary information. This and the ability to lock external access, new touch probe configuration parameters and operation of the integrated oscilloscope from the NC program makes this an especially efficient control.
In fact, this, along with the TNC 320s overall shop-oriented programming, simple operation and offline program creation make this control the most efficient in its class!
As always, the TNC 320 can be integrated into networks and connected with PCs, programming stations and other data storage devices. It features the latest generation Fast Ethernet interface, and communicates with NFS servers and Windows networks in TCP/IP protocol without needing additional software.
