Options are functions integrated in the control with which you can adapt the feature range of the TNC, retroactively if necessary, to your actual requirements.
Touch probes from HEIDENHAIN help you perform setup, measuring and inspection functions directly on the machine tool.
The camera systems from HEIDENHAIN enable the in-process monitoring of the tool and work envelope, permitting reliable detection of incorrect workpieces, missing or incorrect machining operations, missing tools, worn tools, and tools lying in the work envelope.
For simple work you need not write a program on the TNC. It is just as easy to operate the machine manually using an electronic handwheel.
