The programming station avoids machine idle time by allowing programs to be created, tested, and optimized away from the machine. The programming station keyboard is based on the actual machine keyboard, so everything is familiar.
HEIDENHAIN programming stations are based on the same software used by the controls. Programming and program verification are done the same as on the machine. This raises the certainty that a program created on the programming station will run smoothly and without interruption in real life.
Realistic simulation graphics
The programming station’s detailed simulation graphics provide a precise and realistic machining preview. As a result, proper program entry, smooth machining processes, and desired surface quality can be checked before machining.
Free demo version
For testing purposes, the programming station is also available in a demo version. It contains all of the control’s functions and can save short programs. Program length is limited, but all other functions are fully usable.
The Digital Twin is a realistic model of the machine on a programming station, thereby bringing the machine’s real-life kinematics, parameters, and functions to the office. The HEIDENHAIN Service department creates a backup of the machine that can then be easily uploaded to the programming station.
