Having command of highly complex procedures is a clear competitive advantage when it comes to milling and turning. HEIDENHAIN will be presenting their controls, encoders, and drive technologies for machine tools at EMO 2019.
In order to manufacture products that satisfy the highest demands regarding accuracy and quality in a reliable, economic, and efficient process, many different building blocks all around the machine tool must fit and interact perfectly. At EMO 2019, HEIDENHAIN will use presentations and live demonstrations to show very different combinations and possible solutions for process optimisation.
New Options, Features, And Hardware For TNC Controls
Even starting with a lot size of just one piece, HEIDENHAIN controls offers process reliability, accuracy, and productivity. Furthermore, they facilitate the simple and reliable digital integration of the machine into the process chain. Packages of functions including Dynamic Precision, Dynamic Efficiency, and Connected Machining as well as numerous additional options ensure this.
Thanks to its split screen, the new TNC 640 with a 24-inch widescreen and Extended Workspace Compact can offer two work areas: the user can have other applications be displayed alongside the control screen. This way he has an especially user-friendly workstation in order to organise jobs completely digitally directly on the control.
An Encoder Solution For Every Rotary Axis
The company’s encoders for determining the position of linear and rotary axes are the industrial standard for Closed Loop control, where the dimensionally accurate production of contours is not affected by thermally induced changes to the feed mechanism. At EMO 2019, HEIDENHAIN will particularly focus on angle encoders, and together with AMO will present solutions for every rotary axis. For example, the RCN 2001 optical angle encoders with integral bearing and integrated stator coupling have been fundamentally redesigned. The RCN 2001 angle encoders accomplish this by transmitting not only the temperature values of the integrated temperature sensor over a digital interface, but also other sensor data, particularly the temperature of the torque motor.
Innovative Setup And Measuring
Touch probes and the numerous probing cycles of the controls increase the dimensional accuracy of finished workpieces. Setup and measurement of workpieces and tools, as well as calibration of the machine kinematics, are all performed quickly and easily before machining or during operation. The touch probes are optimally tuned to the TNC cycles.
Greater Performance And Process Reliability Through New Generations Of Drive Systems
Motors and control technology from ETEL and HEIDENHAIN significantly contribute to the dynamic and highly accurate motion control of machine tools. The new GEN 3 generation of drives which will debut at EMO, ensures maximum performance and offers intelligent transmission technology, powerful diagnostics, and simple mounting and connection technology.
