SCHAUMBURG, IL - A new ACU-RITE adapter to enable a bridge from an ACU-RITE CNC control to a HEIDENHAIN control on the same machine will be introduced in September at the IMTS show in Chicago (Sept. 12-17). This new product bridges the gap to bring an ACU-RITE control user to the next step, an entry-level HEIDENHAIN TNC 320 control, all on the same machine tool. This new system from HEIDENHAIN's ACU-RITE brand will be especially useful for shop owners who want to easily upgrade their machine already equipped with an ACU-RITE MILLPWR control to the next-step HEIDENHAIN TNC 320 or to switch between both controls such as in teaching environments at trade schools and in machine shops. The PCBA was developed to allow ACU-RITE controls users to define and order a TNC 320 for small machine tool applications (i.e., VMC with tool changer) as a simple upgrade. This new system includes the PCBA adapter, a TNC 320 control and a complete AC package (motors, drives and electrical cabinet). Two options will be available: Kit Style: For a user who has an ACU-RITE bed mill kit installed on a machine and they want to add the flexibility of the HEIDENHAIN TNC 320, the interface PCBA adapter can accommodate the functionality by using the backend ACU-RITE components. The use could be educational where most instructing is done on the ACU-RITE MILLPWR or TURNPWR control but there is a need to show advance functionality of the TNC 320. This allows users to become experienced with HEIDENHAIN entry-level controls. OEI: This is the console-only option that a builder can integrate into the machine, using ACU-RITE's backend components. This can be used for CNC ready machines that have older controls and the end user wants to upgrade.
