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

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