The TNC 640 control is Heidenhain’s first milling control is offered with optional turning, enabling it to perform multi-operation machining. As with other TNC controls, the user is able to enter all the programming steps for turning operation in plain language, just as for milling. The machine is equipped with an optimized user interface, which gives the user greater transparency during programming, presents functions better and displays status information more clearly, according to the company. The TNC 640 also features a new stainless steel control design and a specially prepared keyboard surface and screen frame to eliminate fingerprints.

 
The company will also feature its new TS 460 and TT 460, touch probes that enable the user to transmit the trigger signal either over infrared or radio waves, without having to change the touch probe. This gives the users the benefits of a very wide transmission range (radio) and fast signal transmission (infrared), the company says.
 
 Also on display will be the company’s DRO systems and the 3500i, a touchscreen CNC mill control.
