Heidenhain's new TNC7 CNC controlClick image to enlarge

Heidenhain has announced that it will introduce its new TNC7 CNC control at the IMTS 2022 trade show.

The new control supports users from initial design to final machining, from one-off jobs to serial production, and from simple slots to complex contours. Its control platform lets machine manufacturers adapt the user interface to their machines and offers dynamic development potential for greater functionality.

Along with intuitive operation, TNC7 users benefit from support from a virtual simulation of the machined part and work envelope. It will be the basis of future control generations from Heidenhain. Beyond its distinctive new look and feel, the control features high-quality hardware components including a 24-inch full HD touchscreen monitor and an individually adaptable user interface. The entire operating concept has been redesigned from the ground up.

The interface has been designed to help users achieve the best possible result with maximum speed and convenience. Different machining tasks call for individualized work environments, which is why users can adapt their screen content through personal favorites, their own home menu for a faster start. And thanks to fast operating speed, the control reacts immediately to data input.

The TNC7 enhances familiar Klartext programming with smart functions and newly developed graphical programming. Users are able to draw contours directly on the touchscreen and convert them into dialogue-guided TNC Klartext programming code. Cycles and older contour programs can still be used, including already existing NC programs. A diverse package of functions, intelligent probing cycles, and graphical guidance for determining the position of clamping devices completes the next level of smart programming.

TNC7 will be on display at the IMTS Heidenhain booth #135716 (East Hall), and also at the IMTS Student Summit booth #215600 and Hermle USA booth #339119 (South Hall) in action on the Hermle C250 High Performance line five-axis milling machine tool.

Educating the educators about manufacturing

Manufacturing doesn't have the greatest reputation among the general public and when it comes to youth, it's not often considered as a career choice.
