SCHAUMBURG, IL - HEIDENHAIN has long been enabling manufacturing technology for machine tools and will once again showcase some of the latest during three daily live presentations during the upcoming IMTS show (Sept. 10-15) in Chicago. Because of HEIDENHAIN’s extremely large breadth of motion control product lines, each of the three daily presentations will focus on a different aspect of machining and be hosted at the booth’s “Take Ten” area.
Here, on each show day at 11 a.m., a short discussion and demonstration about “Powerful 5-Axis CNC Control” will be held, highlighting the TNC 640, the most powerful 5-axis control on the market. HEIDENHAIN will present a complete set of turning functions on an advanced milling control. Highlights will include HEIDENHAIN’s Connected Machining components such as the new StateMonitor and Batch Process Monitor software and will close with insights provided on HEIDENHAIN’s dynamic compensation and smoothing functions.
Then daily at 1 p.m., a short discussion titled “Thermal Protection for Torque Motors” will be offered. Here, the speaker will focus on the importance of heat management, whether it is to dissipate heat to achieve more power or to ensure a system does not get damaged. Varying heat monitoring methods as well as cooling methods, key datasheet values and how they affect temperature will be discussed. Examples of unique motor designs by ETEL for monitoring and cooling will also be shown.
Finally, daily at 3 p.m., a presentation on “Rugged, Reliable Metrology” will be given. Visitors are encouraged to stop by the booth for a quick review of the shop-floor-ready QUADRA-CHEK Metrology line-up. Whether using a Measuring Microscope, Optical Comparator or Vision System, QUADRA-CHEK has a clean interface that is simple to learn and will allows users to quickly and easily measure and document parts at the touch of a few buttons.
All of these motion control topic demonstrations include messages of precise control, speed and position, necessary factors of consideration for any type of machining. Limited seating at the booth will be available.
