Acknowledging the requirements of the evolving digital manufacturing initiative, OPEN MIND Technologies has partnered with HEIDENHAIN TNC controls to provide exclusive first use of their new NC code-based simulation solution hyperMILL VIRTUAL Machining. The CONNECTED Machining module allows networked HEIDENHAIN TNC controls to be run from remote locations, a key component for digital production systems. The new simulation solution is available with the hyperMILL 2018.1 release.
HEIDENHAIN’s workshop-oriented TNC 640 mill-turn contouring control is well known for HSC and 5-axis machining on machines with up to 18 axes. Guiding basic to advanced machining, the TNC 640 pairs well with OPEN MIND’s virtual software by connecting with HEIDENHAIN’s DNC software and TNC Remo SDK options.
