IMTS Preview: Heidenhain
July 5, 2016—
Heidenhain will present measurement components as well as products from ETEL and Acu-Rite during IMTS 2016 in Chicago.
Heidenhain will present its precision measurement components and systems at IMTS 2016 (Booth E-5226) as well as highlights from two of its many internationally-owned entities: ETEL and Acu-Rite brands. Heidenhain North America represents and distributes seven precision measurement component company brands.
This year’s 50 x 60-foot IMTS Heidenhain booth will be host to many of the industry’s very latest motion control options including a brand new Quadra-Chek 3000 digital readout, Heidenhain encoders (including the RCN 6000 angle encoder and LC 100 linear scale) and unique TNC control/capabilities. ETEL’s TMB+ torque motors, as well as the Acu-Rite MILLPWRG2 CNC control with enhanced features will also be shown.
Heidenhain’s new Quadra-Chek 3000 is designed for measuring 2D geometrical features quickly and easily, utilizing technology that, up to this point, has only been available on PC systems. ETEL’s new TMB+ torque motors improves upon the well-known TMB series with even greater material quality, new size additions (62 sizes up from 50), higher force density and more winding options. These motors can achieve peak torque values up to 44,000 Nm.
Acu-Rite’s MILLPWRG2 CNC Control is for vertical knee and bed mills. It is available with an optional AMI (auxiliary machine interface) and spindle control console offering users the ability to use common interfaces as well as control its host machine tool’s spindle.
A presentation on advanced TNC control capabilities by Heidenhain is also in development for delivery at the booth. More information on this and other product information will be released at show time.
