Heidenhain has announced the new POSITIP (PT) 8016 digital readout (DRO) with touch screen for manual machine tool applications. 

The PT 8016 is designed for milling, drilling, boring and turning jobs. Functions include a taper calculator, bolt hole pattern routine and tool radius compensator. It also includes distance-to-go modes in both absolute and incremental.  It can control of up to three NC analog, point-to-point axes and a spindle with the PT 8016 “ACTIVE Version.”

The PT 8016 DRO features a shop-hardened 12 in. colour TFT Touch Screen for an IP65 front panel and an IP40 back panel.  Users can plug in up to six encoders – either 1Vpp or 11µApp incremental or absolute EnDat 2.2 pure serial.  It has storage for up to 100 datums and 100 tool parameters, as well as the capability to create, store and execute programs.

The PT 8016 replaces Heidenhain’s PT 880. It stands alongside the recently released ND 5023 and ND 7013 to round out the new Heidenhain family of digital readouts.
