HEIDENHAIN controls have always been known for their comprehensive and technologically advanced package of cycles. The cycles of the TNC 640 include multi-step, frequently recurring operations. While programming cycles, you enjoy dialog guidance and informative help images that illustrate the required parameters. In addition to the well-known TNC milling and drilling cycles, the TNC 640 also provides numerous turning cycles for roughing, finishing, recessing, thread turning, recess turning, and more. These turning functions are based on software from the longproven HEIDENHAIN turning controls, allowing you to program even complex turning operations with ease on the machine.
The TNC 640's more complex turning cycles employ the same techniques as those used for milling. As a result, TNC programmers can build on their prior knowledge to rapidly enter the world of turning operations on a milling machine without retraining. The control also features grinding cycles, including:
- Define reciprocating stroke
- Activate wheel edge
- Profile dressing
