Booth E-5224

Heidenhain Corp.'s IMTS exhibit "promises to give visitors insight into significant motion control issues" under its show theme them of "The Inside Story."

Product highlights include the company's newest touch probes, as well as the North American introduction of the TNC 640 control, Heidenhain's first milling control offered with optional turning enabling it to perform multi-operation machining. Just as with all other TNC controls, the user only needs to enter all the programming steps for turning operation in plain language, just as he does for milling. Also new with the TNC 640 is the optimized user interface, which gives the user greater transparency during programming, presents functions better and displays status information more clearly. The TNC 640 also introduces a new stainless steel control design and a specially prepared keyboard surface and screen frame to eliminate fingerprints.

Also making their debut at the show will be the first touch probes that enable the user to transmit the trigger signal either over infrared or radio waves without having to change the touch probe--TS 460 and TT 460.
