MACH 2000: CONTROLS & DIGITAL READOUT SYSTEMS

Anilam: Stand 5585

Anilam’s display of control and digital readout technology is designed to illustrate to visitors how the company’s 30-plus years of experience in machine control has spawned an expansive series of cost-effective products. Last year the firm launched the 5000 series machine tool CNCs for up to five-axis applications and these will be displayed alongside the PC-based Anilam MK 3000 Series milling controls.

Heidenhain GB: Stand 5738

Visitors to the Heidenhain stand will get a first look at a new series of competitively-priced, high-performance digital-readout systems (DRO) for milling, drilling, boring and turning machines. The system is easily interfaced with existing manual or semi-automatic machine tools.

The BD 700 Series DRO allows precise axis positioning and eliminates effects of error in mechanical elements of leadscrews, ballscrews, and bearings.

Siemens: Stand 5449

Since its launch into the job-shop market two years ago, Siemens Shopmill has been bought by more than 30 high-profile machine tool builders. New for MACH will be ShopMill Version 5, which includes extra functions and programming options. It can support multi-clamping, which will dramatically increase the productivity of job shops due to the reduced programming time and minimised tool change cycles.
