Opening CAD data directly on the TNC

NC programs for five-axis operations are normally written on CAD/CAM systems.

The workpiece geometry is described in the CAD system, while the required technology data is added in the CAM system. The technology data specify the methods (such as milling, drilling, or boring), the strategy (area pocket clearance, plunge milling, etc.), and the parameters (spindle speed, feed rate, etc.) for machining the workpiece.

A postprocessor uses the geometry and technology data to create an executable program, which is then usually transferred over the company network to the TNC control.

The additional CAD viewer allows you to open standardized 2-D and 3-D CAD data formats directly on the TNC.

With the DXF converter – easy importing and processing of contours

With the DXF converter you can very easily import milling and turning contours and machining positions from existing DXF files. You can open DXF files directly in the TNC control, in order to extract contours or machining positions by mouse click , and save them directly on the TNC as plain-language programs or as point tables. You can download DXF file onto the iTNC over the network or use a USB stick.
