With the Digital Twin from HEIDENHAIN, virtual machining on the programming station is just like the real machine on the shop floor. This reduces setup and testing time while increasing process reliability and productivity. The path to a Digital Twin from HEIDENHAIN is also so easy…
A HEIDENHAIN programming station with a Digital Twin provides many benefits. Prior to actual machining, you can use the Digital Twin in the following ways to become fast and reliably productive:
Check and optimize tool paths
Prevent program interruptions
Maximize use of the work envelope
Test complex 5-axis movements
Check and optimize the clamping position
But the Digital Twin does more than help you create verified NC programs. It also helps with quoting and job planning by letting you determine the exact machining times, in addition to calculating costs and deadlines.
Using a programming station with the Digital Twin, you can also provide your staff with highly practical training in TNC operation. Your trainees can learn NC programming skills in a safe, realistic environment.
Communication with the NC Programming Helpline by phone or e-mail to determine the exact requirements
Preparation of a rough cost estimate by HEIDENHAIN based on the machine data
Preparation of an quotation
Order placement by the customer
Adaptation of the programming station
Creation and forwarding of a backup file of the adapted programming station
Backup file import into the customer’s original programming station
The backup with the adapted data can be installed on all equivalent programming stations.
