The TNC7 defines the design of future generations of controls from HEIDENHAIN. However, a noticeably new look-and-feel is only part of the equation. Along with high-quality hardware components, the TNC7 mainly features an innovative user interface that can be customized to each user's individual needs. User interaction with the TNC7 was also redesigned from the ground up. The TNC7 supports users in every situation, whether it be programming, machine setup, or part measurement. The very extensive package of functions offers a maximum degree of flexibility in operations.
The next generation of Dynamic Collision Monitoring (DCM)
Full protection of your machine is ensured by the monitoring of machine components, tools, and workholding equipment. The TNC7 provides this by taking Dynamic Collision Monitoring (DCM) to the next generation. With this next level of CNC control, DCM not only prevents collisions between machine components and tools. It also allows workholding equipment in 3D file formats to be imported, monitored, and, thanks to a new functionality, very easily aligned with graphical support. The TNC7 offers this collision protection in both manual and automatic operation. Possible collisions are already detected during the simulation, so even before machining begins. The TNC7 depicts the situation in the work envelope, including the tool, fixtures and workpiece, in a high-resolution and realistic 3D view.
TNC Component Monitoring protects the machine tool
TNC Component Monitoring is a toolbox that allows machine manufacturers to implement extensive monitoring functions. During machining, this function can protect the spindle bearing from overloading, detect increased component wear in the drive chain, and more. It also delivers valuable data about actual loads acting on the machine, thus helping you evaluate process capability and plan maintenance within the context of predictive maintenance. The TNC Component Monitoring function can also record and display the amount of wear on the recirculating ball screw or even warn you about spindle overload.
TNC Process Monitoring for safe and reliable manufacturing
The process monitoring integrated in the TNC dependably detects disturbances in the machining process based on deviations from reference machining operations. The user can adapt this monitoring through simple Klartext syntax and an intuitive user interface. With no additional sensors required, it ensures high process quality. This provides for ready verification of process outcomes and ensures stable productivity thanks to an extensive range of reactions, such as inserting a replacement tool.
