Why HEIDENHAIN CNC controls?

  • Wide variety of control types for any application
  • Powerful, proven technology—in daily use on thousands of milling, drilling and boring machines for more than 30 years
  • Universal, easy-to-use interface, designed with machine operators and programmers in mind and made to be compatible with earlier programs

Why HEIDENHAIN touch probe solutions?

  • Enjoy high repeatability and accuracy
  • Probes feature a patented collision adapter
  • A wear-free optical sensor provides the specified probing repeatability even after a large number of probing processes (more than 5 million switching cycles)—making our probes perfectly suited for a large variety of machine tools; the optical sensor features an optimized lens system and an integrated preamplifier for stable output signals
  • Other special features include self-cleaning functionality and battery-free touch probes with internal turbines
  • Our probes allow for easy setup and include the benefit of integration with our controls’ probing cycles

Learn how to combat common machining challenges with advanced control technologies

At HEIDENHAIN, we understand today's complex machining challenges and ambitious production schedules. That's why we design our CNC machine tool control functionalities to solve these issues.
 
dynamic efficiency

Our Dynamic Efficiency functionalities allow high material removal rates and extended machine and tool life in roughing of especially hard-to-cut materials when chatter and high loads are present.

dynamic efficiency

Our Dynamic Precision technologies enable better accuracy in acceleration and deceleration phases by dynamically adjusting the controller parameters depending on the machine’s age, load or machining position.
