HEIDENHAIN is proud to announce Community College of Denver’s (CCD) Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC) as the first HEIDENHAIN authorized training partner (ATP) focusing on its CNC controls in North America. Here, both students and industry stakeholders alike can now access and train on the latest in state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment.

To become a HEIDENHAIN ATP, CCD staff completed several rounds of advanced training on the 5-Axis HEIDENHAIN TNC machine controls and successfully passed an extensive exam.

“We are thrilled to be able to contribute to domestic manufacturing with these advanced capabilities,” said Matthew Sweeney, AMC Director. “It’s exciting to see what can now be done just by knowing what buttons to push on these conversational and effective HEIDENHAIN controls. And we are just scratching the surface of what these HEIDENHAIN controllers can do. Even the most experienced machinist can benefit from these advanced capabilities.”

HEIDENHAIN’s TNC Business Development Manager Gisbert Ledvon explained that “HEIDENHAIN has been in a relationship with CCD and their Advanced Manufacturing Center in Colorado since 2015, including participating in multiple joint workshops held at CCD for 5-axis machining covering theoretical and practical parts.” There are multiple HEIDENHAIN TNC controls in operation at the AMC, and student classes are currently being offered there from basic to advanced control programming and training.

More information on HEIDENHAIN control training opportunities at CCD can be obtained from CCD Machining Instructor Eric Miller at 303.352.3060 or online at ccd.edu.

CCD is now listed online as one of the global ATPs of DR. JOHANNES HEIDENHAIN GmbH, and other North American institutions are now invited to apply to the ATP program as well. More information about ATP program partnership is available from HEIDENHAIN.

This expanded HEIDENHAIN ATP program is part of a larger North American TNC support initiative. This new support includes increased control training at HEIDENHAIN offices in the Schaumburg, IL, an establishment of a controls application group with dedicated contact information (TNCApplications@heidenhain.com), as well as a hotline for on-the-go technical support (847-490-0351, Ext. 2).
