TNC 320 - The Compact Contouring Control for Milling, Drilling and Boring Machines

The control shows a clear overview of all information for programming, operating and inspecting the machine tool and control such as program blocks, comments and error messages. The graphics also support the user during program input, test run and machining.

The TNC 320 is especially well-suited for use on universal milling, drilling and boring machines for

  • Series and single-part production
  • Tool making
  • Machine building
  • Research and development
  • Prototypes and pilot plants
  • Repair departments
  • Training and education facilities

Because of its analog output that also provides nominal speed values, the TNC 320 is well suited for retrofitting on machine tools.

Machining with four axes

Many five-axis operations that at first glance may seem complex can be reduced to conventional 2-D movements that are tilted about one or more rotary axes or wrapped onto a cylindrical surface. The processes support the TNC 320 with application-oriented functions:

Tilting the working plane with the PLANE function:
You program the machining operation as usual in the working plane. The machine then runs the program in a plane that has been tilted by one or more plains of the reference axis.

Programming of contours on cylindrical surfaces:
The TNC 320 supports you with three cycles for cylinder-surface machining: slot milling, guide-groove milling and ridge milling.

Simple setup for minimized setup time

Another endless setup for only a short machining time? With the TNC 320, this is not necessary.

Particularly in small and medium-sized production runs, the TNC 320 can really reduce setup and non-machining time. The well proven functions—like incremental jog through axis-direction keys, the probing functions in conjunction with a touch probe or the rapid measurement of datums—make setup easy.
