This year at AMB, visitors will be able to catch up on HEIDENHAIN’s NC control program at not only one booth, but three. Besides its main exhibition in Hall 4, Booth 4E12, HEIDENHAIN will also support the special exhibition of the VDW foundation for youth in the atrium, as well as CNC Arena’s booth, also in Hall 4.
The central topic of the HEIDENHAIN booth is the active presentation of new user functions for the TNC 640 milling/turning control introduced at EMO 2011. The new software includes important and proven functions that the machinist is already familiar with from the iTNC 530 or MANUALplus 620.

For example, the TNC 640 has a DXF converter for opening CAD files directly on the control in order to extract contours. The machining time is optimized with the Adaptive Feed Control function (AFC). Here the TNC controls the feed rate during the entire machining time without exceeding the maximum spindle power.

The TNC’s Dynamic Collision Monitoring (DCM), interrupts machining whenever a collision is imminent and so increases safety for the machine and the operator. This helps to prevent machine damage, which can result in costly downtimes. Unattended shifts become safer and more reliable. New functions have also been integrated for turning operations, such as new cycles for recess turning, and blank form updating when using the contour turning cycles.

The new limit plane feature is a powerful yet flexible function for graphically setting machining limits with the iTNC 530.

There’s also news in accessories for rapid setup of tools and workpieces:
The new touch probes TS 460 (workpiece touch probe) and TT 460 (tool touch probe), feature two transmission methods: infrared and radio. Combining the advantages of infrared (very high accuracy and rapid signal transmission) with those of radio (high range and large amounts of data) makes it possible to use the touch probes in many different types of situations.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
