Optimized Contour Milling (OCM) gives you nearly unlimited trochoidal milling possibilities. After you’ve defined the contour, the control automatically calculates the best trochoidal milling strategy, letting you apply this highly efficient milling process to a much wider range of workpieces for greater productivity and less tool wear.
The Digital Shop Floor: solutions for greater efficiency, transparency and reliability
The Digital Shop Floor from HEIDENHAIN bundles hardware, software, consulting, and services for digitalizing your entire production operation. These solutions can be combined as needed and don’t require cloud computing. Based on HEIDENHAIN expertise in shopfloor processes, the Digital Shop Floor gives small to medium-sized companies a digital 360° view of their processes, from initial quoting to quality control and shipment.
New StateMonitor version 1.4.0: Now with tool data acquisition
The StateMonitor software from HEIDENHAIN delivers a real-time window into the production status of your CNC machine tools. It collects and intuitively displays data from your machines on your PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. StateMonitor version 1.4.0 now includes a tool monitoring function that tracks the real utilization time of the current tool. You can use this information anytime to determine whether to continue deploying the tool, thus avoiding the cost of premature tool replacement.
Digital Twin: realistic simulation for reliable production processes
The Digital Twin from HEIDENHAIN is a realistic model of a machine tool for use on your programming station. Live demonstrations at EMO Milano will showcase the user-friendly and powerful interplay of the Digital Twin, StateMonitor, and OCM within a digital process chain. The moderators will use a Digital Twin to program a workpiece, upload it online to the new control, start the program via StateMonitor, and machine the part with OCM.
Monitor the machining progress in real time: touch probes and camera systems
Benefit from in-process tool and workpiece inspection. At EMO, HEIDENHAIN will be introducing the new TS 760 as an even more accurate variant of the familiar TS 460 workpiece touch probe. HEIDENHAIN developed the TS 750 specifically for inspecting the workpiece within the machine envelope during grinding operations. From inside the machine tool, the VT 121 ensures that tools are in proper condition for delivering perfect machining results.
The meeting point for expert knowledge: join the TNC Club
Do you use a HEIDENHAIN control at your workplace? Then the TNC Club is the place for you! Here you can converse with experts, develop yourself through training courses, and network with like-minded people. We’re looking forward to meeting you in person. And not just in Germany and Italy, but also in the Netherlands, France, and the UK.
Encoders for reliable processes: a solution for every axis
Angle and linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN and AMO offer an optimal solution for every application. Whether it’s a sealed RCN or LC, a modular ECM 2000, a drum solution for mid-sized diameters, or a scale-tape solution for large diameters, process reliability and positioning accuracy are perfectly matched to the application. And a new solution will also be showcased at EMO: a rotational speed sensor from AMO that collects spindle operating data.
The new RVM 4000: measure rotary tables and tilting axes
How good is the positioning accuracy of your rotary table or tilting axis? The new convenient RVM 4000 comparator measuring system from HEIDENHAIN provides a fast and accurate answer. Acceptance testing in accordance with ISO 230-2, for example, becomes easy to perform on the shop floor.
ERM 6000 Dplus: sensitively monitor the milling process
The new ERM 6000 Dplus encoder monitors the milling process directly at the spindle. The collected data can then be analyzed, interpreted, and visualized, providing meaningful information about the spindle and even the tool. The result: reliable processes during unattended shifts, prolonged tool and machine run times, and optimal maintenance management
New addition to the Gen 3 drives: sine-wave drive for high-frequency spindles
The HEIDENHAIN Gen 3 drives are a perfectly matched holistic system based on highly innovative and pioneering technologies. Machine manufacturers and users benefit from state-of-the-art interface technology, improved specs and enhanced controller performance. At EMO 2021, HEIDENHAIN will be introducing a new sine-wave drive that delivers the Gen 3 benefits to high-frequency spindles.
Developed for machine tools: motors from HEIDENHAIN and ETEL with high dynamic performance
Motors have a major impact on the accuracy and surface quality of machine tools. Key criteria include the motor’s maximum torque, the amount of torque ripple, and the inertia ratio between the motor and its load, all of which are optimally matched in the motors of HEIDENHAIN and ETEL.
Reduce connection costs, and boost machine availability
Can a signal converter from HEIDENHAIN lower the cost of connecting a machine? How can HEIDENHAIN encoders contribute to Condition Monitoring? Our videos reveal how the EIB 5000 and the EIB 3392 reduce cabling and inventory needs.
You’ll also learn how HEIDENHAIN encoders support high-level Condition Monitoring through online diagnostics and operating data, thereby increasing machine availability.
The HEIDENHAIN Automation Solution is a modular system for universal tool and workpiece automation. Automated equipment operators benefit from intuitive control of their automation solution without extensive training. Machine manufacturers and automation providers value the solution’s field-proven components and flexible adaptability.
