Heidenhain offers motion control components and systems that can connect equipment from many machine tool builders. The company’s Connected Machining package supports users as they introduce digital order management into their production processes.

The company’s StateMonitor software evaluates machine data from the company’s TNC controls or other CNC controls with the MTConnect protocol interface. The evaluation process can be monitored on-site or by using mobile devices via a secure IT structure.

Connected Machining systems enable analysis of data and reduce downtimes, according to the company. They improve metal removal rates, productivity and accuracy while supporting machine operators.
