HEIDENHAIN introduces TNC 620 Contouring Control
HEIDENHAIN offers its TNC 620 equipped for handling even very complicated tasks, including those that use swivel and rotary axes. And for simultaneous machining with up to five axes, the TNC 620 offers special functions that produce optimal machining results. Dynamic look-ahead, algorithms for jerk limitation and intelligent motion control are the type of available functions that enable the TNC 620 to handle even very stringent requirements on the surface of a finished workpiece.
It is important to note that the main computer, controller unit, and other components of the HEIDENHAIN TNC 620 control system feature a new, powerful interface: HSCI (HEIDENHAIN Serial Controller Interface). HSCI is based on the 100BaseT Ethernet standard so well known in network connections. This helps make short cycle times for data transfer possible, considerably reduces cable costs and eases installation. Together with the new, purely digital EnDat 2.2 encoder interface, the TNC 620 has a uniformly digital design from the main computer to the encoder.
The main computer of the TNC 620 is housed inside the operating panel, behind the TFT flat-panel display. Because of this, complicated wiring into the electrical box is a thing of the past.
Lastly, this TNC 620 can be customized with select functions from many available options to meet the needs of the customer; from very simple to highly complex machine applications.
HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION is the North American subsidiary of DR. JOHANNES HEIDENHAIN GmbH, a leading international manufacturer of precision measurement and control equipment. The product line includes linear scales, rotary and angular encoders, digital readouts, digital length gages, CNC controls and machine inspection equipment.
