Original Press Release:


Introducing the New SmarT.NC User Interace from Heidenhain


SCHAUMBURG, IL (August 2004) - In addition to classic conversational programming for TNCs, HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION is now offering smarT.NC, a brand new user interface for TNCs intended for use by both the NC beginner and the conversational expert. This new interface enables users to create executable NC programs faster, more safely, simpler and more conveniently than ever before. SmarT.NC will be shown for the first time in North America on HEIDENHAIN's iTNC 530 controls at the IMTS show in September.

This exciting new programming system guides the user in a self-explanatory and intuitive way through the complete NC programming tasks by using straightforward forms. SmarT.NC is so user friendly that the user can decide whether to use it or the plain language level at any time. Even if a program has been created with smarT.NC, for example, it can be edited as before with the plain language editor, making this a very unique system.

This procedure is possible because both smarT.NC and the plain language editor access the same file: the plain language program! SmarT.NC is a simple all-in-one system as it also enables program verification and execution. This system has an integrated pattern generator as well.

HEIDENHAIN's new TE 530B operating panel is highly recommended for the use with smarT.NC since it makes it possible to conveniently use the advantages of this new user interface. This operating panel comprises a touch pad as well as three new keys for comfortable operation of the smarT.NC.
