Also, at the HEIDENHAIN booth (#611), multiple precision measurement/motion control components of critical use to mold makers all over the world will be on display. Of particular note will be HEIDENHAIN’s TNC 640 high performance mill-turn control that is popular with mold makers thanks to its workshop-oriented operational design and its functions for mold makers.

The TNC 640 is particularly well suited for milling-turning, HSC and 5-axis machining on machines with up to 18 axes. It utilizes a groundbreaking touch screen technology that supplements the TNC 640’s field-proven cycles and functions. This control also allows the user to operate the screen with gestures, similar to smartphones or tablets.

Features of particular interest to mold makers include the TNC 640’s Dynamic Precision options which improve mold surface quality and precision specifically on 3D. Also, of importance is its Dynamic Efficiency features which allow the machining center to automatically optimize speeds, and feeds cutting speeds in variable workpiece thicknesses.
