Heidenhain Expands TNC 640 Control Capability
April 23, 2020—
The TNC 640 control is for machine manufacturers and end users.
Heidenhain is bringing to market its new Gen 3 version of its high-end TNC 640 control for machine manufacturers and end users looking for forward-thinking manufacturing capabilities. This control is useful for machines ranging from 3-axis milling to 5-axis simultaneous machining with milling, turning and grinding operations with up to 24 axes. It is scheduled to be displayed at IMTS 2020 trade show in Chicago (Sept. 14-19) in booth #135226.
With its new Gen 3 drives, the TNC 640 boasts powerful inverters and controller technology that are key components in the complete system of its control package. Now providing even higher spindle and axis dynamics during the manufacturing process, these drives also require less space in its electrical cabinet, and result in reduced storage, mounting costs and servicing time.
With Gen 3 drives serving as the new system foundation, new TNC 640 customers will benefit with high availability and surface quality with shortened machining times, as well as with any other upcoming path-breaking functions of Heidenhain controls.
Some of the new feature highlights of this latest generation TNC 640 control include new jig grinding functions, Extended Workspace Compact, Optimized Contour Milling (OCM) within its “Dynamic Efficiency” package, as well as the ongoing option of a “Dynamic Precision” package. Also, Heidenhain’s new StateMonitor 1.3 makes it very easy to remotely monitor efficiency improvements and ROI of these new CNC functions.
