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 technologiesAt 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.
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.
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.
5 trends that will affect your 5-axis machining next year
Five-axis machining is an increasingly prevalent capability in shops large and small. Still, many are just scratching the surface of what’s possible. Technology innovations and process improvements are a boon for ease of use, and while growth in manufacturing overall is slow, companies are on the hunt for new ways to boost throughput and profit.
