Heidenhain's Touch Numerical Control (TNC) 640 is now available for the Milling machine Mikron MILL P 900 worldwide. This shows GF Machining Solutions' effort to offer customers a greater flexibility. The MILL P 800 U S,  a scalable solution for automation, has been launched.

The three-axis Milling machine Mikron MILL P 900 delivers quality, competitiveness, productivity and performance to a broad range of applications. It can help companies working in mold and die intensive market segments, like home appliances, automotive, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and consumer goods boost their productivity. With its robust portal structure featuring high dynamic stiffness, this solution is especially suited for manufacturers who are looking for the best surface quality and very high positioning and contour accuracy. It brings great advantages for the production of light to heavy mold and die applications with 2.5D contours, small to mid-size batches and prototyping.

Answering to customers' need for flexibility

Heidenhain's Touch Numerical Control (TNC) 640 is a response to customers' need for a greater flexibility. Experts consider it the numerical control with best performances and programming comfort. The control's intuitive, practical and user-friendly interface offers a wide range of functions designed to ensure great reliability. It provides flexibility and efficiency from the job preparation to the final part. The touchable screen allows the operator to navigate through the control quickly and easily. Ultimately, the TNC 640 allows for more availability of the operator for other value-added tasks.

Smart machine modules like ISM, OSS and ITC support the base of the machining center to reach a more precise final part, and the Machine Spindle Protection (MSP) on the MILL P 900 avoids spindle breakdown, while modules like PFP protect the machine and the process. Furthermore, OPC UA is available on the machine, enabling real-time analysis.

The MILL P 800 U S: a scalable solution suited for automation

Another novelty in Milling is the Mikron MILL P 800 U S. This scalable solution has the advantages that customers already know from the MILL P 800 U, but with a reduced layout suited for automation and a smaller footprint. The maximum loading capacity on the machine table is 1,000 kg. It is the ideal solution when using two machines or more. At the same time, the machine keeps the benefits of the Mikron MILL P 800 U: high stability over long milling periods, MSP and suitability for heavy roughing to fine finishing. The solution grows with your needs and allows for truly scalable automation.
