To support the increased interest and use of HEIDENHAIN’s TNC controls in North America, HEIDENHAIN has invested in additional resources and developed a significantly increased offering of available classes in 2018.

HEIDENHAIN’s new TNC classes range from two to five days, and are focused in topic. Users can select from any of seven different classes, from Basic to Advanced trainings, including other options on specific needs such as 5-axis. Class topics include:

  • Basic Training
  • Operation Training
  • 5-axis Machining
  • Free Contour Programming
  • Q-Parameter Programming
  • TNC Workpiece Measuring with Touch Probes
  • Advanced Training
