Heidenhain will premiere the new Acu-Rite-brand droPWR digital readout system at IMTS 2022.

This new droPWR enables an iPad tablet to become a digital readout (DRO), doing everything an Acu-Rite DRO can do except without cables between tablet and machine tool.

Bluetooth technology along with an IBT interface box in the droPWR system allows connection to multiple machine configurations in one tablet including for milling, turning, and grinding machines with up to six axes. Designed to be simple and functional, this tablet DRO can be moved and used with various machines in many production environments such as small shops and students in shop class.

The new droPWR  combines the familiar and intuitive user experience of traditional Acu-Rite DROs with modern touch screen conventions. It includes new software, an IBT interface box suitable for the machine tool and relevant encoders/brackets if needed.  A tablet with iOS 15 or greater is required.  The straightforward on-boarding configuration setup enables users to establish connection to its intended machine(s) quickly.

IMTS will be held Sept 12-17 in Chicago IL.
