HEIDENHAIN’s TNC7: A new Level of CNC Control
Along with easy and intuitive operation, users enjoy support from a virtual simulation of the machined part and work envelope.
Posted: September 23, 2022
HEIDENHAIN is giving machine manufacturers and experts at the machine new capabilities that are intuitive, task-focused, and customizable. As the new level in CNC control, the TNC7 supports the user at every stage along the way, from initial design to the finished workpiece, from one-off jobs to serial production, from simple slots to complex contours, and from machine setup to program execution. The TNC7 takes your manufacturing to a new level.
HEIDENHAIN enters a new chapter in shop floor centered manufacturing by unveiling the new TNC7 in North America. This standard-setting CNC control supports users from initial design to final machining, from one-off jobs to serial production, and from simple slots to complex contours. Its groundbreaking control platform lets machine manufacturers adapt the user interface to their machines and offers dynamic development potential for even greater functionality.
The TNC7 brings new possibilities to users on the shop floor. Along with easy and intuitive operation, users enjoy support from a virtual simulation of the machined part and work envelope. It will be the basis of future control generations from HEIDENHAIN. Beyond its unmistakable new look and feel, the control features high-quality hardware components including a 24-inch full HD touchscreen monitor and an advanced, individually adaptable user interface. Its entire operating concept was redesigned from the ground up.
With this interface, users can achieve the best possible result with maximum speed and convenience. Different machining tasks call for individualized work environments, which is why users can adapt their screen content through personal favorites, their own home menu for a faster start. And thanks to its fast-operating speed, the control reacts immediately to data input.
The TNC7 enhances familiar Klartext programming with smart functions and newly developed graphical programming. Users can draw contours directly on the touchscreen and convert them into dialog guided TNC Klartext programming code. Cycles and older contour programs can still be used, including existing NC programs. A diverse package of functions, intelligent probing cycles, and graphical guidance for determining the position of clamping devices completes the next level of smart programming.
