The HEIDENHAIN Automation Solution is a modular system for universal tool and workpiece automation. Automated equipment operators benefit from an intuitive operational design, allowing them to control their automation solution without extensive familiarization. Machine manufacturers and automation providers benefit from the field-proven components and flexible adaptability of the HEIDENHAIN Automation Solution.
Automated workpiece loading significantly improves machine tool utilization.The HEIDENHAIN Automation Solution manages the workpiece magazine and handling system. Its intuitive software provides staging area support that manages magazine pockets and controls the movement of all material.
Automated machine tools require a sizable stock of tools beyond the built-in tool magazine. The HEIDENHAIN Automation Solution easily links the required external auxiliary magazine to the machine tool’s control. This lets you manage the expanded tool capacity using familiar TNC functions.
The PLC and NC programmers of the HEIDENHAIN Service department support machine manufacturers in implementing their automation solution and in integrating the HEIDENHAIN Automation Solution within their overall machine tool system.
