SCHAUMBURG, IL (August 2016) – Bringing its international expertise in the area of motion control to the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago’s McCormick Place (September 12 – 17), HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION will offer five different concise presentations covering the latest in manufacturing technology at their booth (#E-5226) each day of the show. Each presentation will last a maximum of 10 minutes.
TNC 640 Control for Mill-Turn Machines
- 10:00 a.m.
- 1:00 p.m.
This is HEIDENHAIN’s answer to incorporating a complete set of turning functions on advanced milling controls. Previously only available on HEIDENHAIN’s lathe controls, this demo will simulate the now available turning functions via HEIDENHAIN’s TNC 640, offering users more benefits and options than ever.
Dynamic Precision & 3D-Machining
- 11:00 a.m.
- 2:00 p.m.
This presentation promises to cover the ins & outs of HEIDENHAIN’s 5-axis machining concept and the explanation of what Dynamic Precision means to the user of HEIDENHAIN’s TNC controls. Features such as path control concept, better processing of CAM, dynamic error compensation and smoothing functions will be shown.
- 12:00 p.m.
- 3:00 p.m.
This important presentation will highlight HEIDENHAIN’s use of machine connectivity via the TNC controls, and the value it has to automation, production data management and machine intelligence. Control features such as Remo Tools SDK and Remote Desktop Manager are just two that widen the horizon of machining over distance.
The Latest Metrology Evaluation Electronics: QUADRA-CHEK 3000
- 10:30 a.m.
- 12:30 p.m.
- 2:30 p.m.
This live demonstration will discuss the many features of this metrology evaluation electronics system designed for measuring 2D geometrical features quickly and easily. By utilizing technology that has previously only been available on PC systems, measurement procedures, feature construction and data handling will be highlighted.
Advantages & Benefits of ETEL’s New TMB+ Torque Motors
- 11:30 a.m.
- 1:30 p.m.
- 3:30 p.m.
This overview will offer a look at the new features and technical advantages provided by ETEL’s newest torque motor, the TMB+. These new advantages involve a greater force density with a lower current draw, along with a greater range of sizes and options for many applications, including 5-axes machining centers, rotary tables, gear grinders and various machine tools.
Besides this year’s booth presentations, HEIDENHAIN will also have on display the standard-setting position feedback/motion control components that influence the world’s most accurate and efficient machines, including encoders (linear, angular and rotary), digital readouts, touch probes, and CNC controls. HEIDENHAIN brands ACU-RITE and ETEL will also host portions of the booth.
