SCHAUMBURG, IL (April 2017) — HEIDENHAIN now offers the PNC 610 control system for auxiliary axes for modular expansion of the TNC hardware. The independently working PNC 610 enables machine tool builders to realize modular and scalable automation solutions for handling workpieces and tools in order to respond to the end users’ respective requirements in an optimum manner.

Auxiliary axes and principal axes can be interpolated with the PNC 610, and are usually used to perform movements on the periphery, such as in tool magazines or workpiece handling systems.

The PNC 610 can be connected to other machine system parts or to CNC controls via standard automation interfaces (TCP/IP, PROFIBUS-DP and PROFINET-IO). It is used to program axis movements in the integrated PLC. Established common PLC functions and HEIDENHAIN software tools from the TNC controls are also available for the PNC 610, for example, Teleservice or VNC can be utilized during setup via one of two Ethernet interfaces.

A recommendation for machine builders is to use the PNC 610 in combination with the UEC or UMC compact inverters as a very compact way for integration. If visualization is required, an ITC 755 industrial screen can be used with ASCII keyboard. Customized graphics can be written with the Python OEM option, for which 10MB of memory is provided.
