User-Friendly Dual Programming of Lathes

Designed for turning machine tools with up to two axes, TURNPWR control by Heidenhain’s Acu-Rite brand of digital readouts, linear scales, and controls gives machinists the option to program via a conversational format or use G-code.

Posted: August 28, 2020

Acu-Rite’s TURNPWR lathe control enables even inexperienced machinists to maximize throughput by significantly reducing setup time, scrap, and other nonproductive operations, thereby increasing efficiency, productivity, and profitability.

Developed to meet the needs of lathe machinists where manual and automated operation are both useful and needed, TURNPWR from the Acu-Rite brand of Heidenhain Corp. (Schaumburg, IL) enables the user to write part programs at the machine using a conversational programming language or edit G-code programs.

A 12.1-inch high-resolution display boasts a screen layout that is clearly arranged and user-friendly. Preview graphics in the editor illustrate the individual machining steps for programming the contour as well as corresponding tool path generated using only dimensions pulled from a production drawing. It also accepts DXF files.

TURNPWR is a closed-loop system with positioning feedback provided by rotary encoders inside the motor assemblies. When fitted with the (optional) Acu-Rite precision glass scales (1 µm/0.00005-inch resolution), TURNPWR also includes Position-Trac, an advanced feature that enables the user to quickly and accurately re-establish workpiece zero after shutting down or losing power.
