ACU-RITE’s G2 Control Now Available for Bed Mills

May 28, 2019

G2 control for bed millsSCHAUMBURG, IL (May 2019) – Long thought of by many as today’s easiest-to-operate CNC for vertical knee mills, HEIDENHAIN’s ACU-RITE-brand MILLPWR G2 control is now also available for bed mills with AC motors.

Combining the latest technology with the finest qualities in traditional machining, this new bed mill control package offers many useful machining features including full 3-D contouring capabilities. It is available as a complete retrofit package for 2- or 3-axis machines or already installed on many new machines.

With its conversational 2-1/2 axis shop floor programming and built-in calculators, the MILLPWR G2 continues to provide convenience to machinists by eliminating time-consuming calculations and the need to learn complicated programs. In addition, it has the ability to run G-code files from CAD/CAM programs, which gives users the capability of the full 3-D contouring. Consequently, it maximizes productivity for machinists of all levels, from the less experienced operator to the most seasoned veteran.

The MILLPWR G2 control features a sturdy operator console that includes a 12.1-inch flat panel color LCD display, a color-coded well-organized keypad, and USB and Ethernet as all standard equipment. This new offering is specifically designed for bed mill applications that are CNC ready (meaning the machine has the ball screws and motor mounts already installed), and includes powerful AC motors and drives, a remote handwheel as standard, and spindle control override. It also allows machine function capabilities to be integrated, (when the machine is equipped for spindle drive inverter, coolant pumps, indexers, oilers, misters etc.).

Backed by a comprehensive warranty, HEIDENHAIN’s ACU-RITE MILLPWR system is supported by a worldwide distribution network of trained and qualified personnel.

ACU-RITE is a brand of HEIDENHAIN consisting of digital readouts, linear scales and the MILLPWR G2 control. ACU-RITE DROs and control are manufactured in the U.S.
