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.

Researchers from Brown University and the University of Hawaii have found some mineralogical surprises in the Moon's largest impact crater.
Data from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper that flew aboard India's Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter shows a diverse mineralogy in the subsurface of the giant South Pole Aitken basin.
The differing mineral signatures could be reflective of the minerals dredged up at the time of the giant impact 4 billion years ago, ...
In power electronics systems bonded connections create the central electrical connections between adjoining surfaces.
The quality of these bonded connections is one of the main factors that determines the reliability and availability of drive systems in electric vehicles, and hence constitutes a major design challenge for German auto manufacturers aiming to electrify their vehicles.

International team of scientists develops new feedback method for optimizing the laser pulse shapes used in the control of chemical reactions
In many ways, traditional chemical synthesis is similar to cooking. To alter the final product, you can change the ingredients or their ratio, change the method of mixing ingredients, or change the temperature or pressure of the environment of the ingredients.
Like an accomplished chef, chemists have become very skilled ...
