  • The control has been around for a long time and is fitted on many machines.
  • It has improved with age as more and more useful features get added.
  • This is a control that can be learned quickly and easily.
  • It is a control that can be used on many levels and has some very sophisticated features.

The problem with learning something quickly and easily is that lots of good features are missed.

I often say to my customers “I get paid to read the manuals you can’t be arsed to read”

Obviously I wouldn’t say “arsed” to my customers. I’d say something more sophisticated like  “the manuals you don’t give a flying fuck about”

I hate to see things underused we are The Wombles of CNC Programming. Check out this article.

You know, like when you find a piece of cheese behind the fridge. My mother taught me that so long as you cut all the mould off it’s fine to eat.

Most of the buttons will look familiar if you worked on older controls and you come to the newer models. Don’t be fooled by this there is loads of new stuff lurking under the bonnet.
It has a parametric programming function using Q defs.

“Bloody hell what are they” I hear you say.

It’s ok it’s just me trying to be posh again. It means that you can control a programme externally. The sizes, feeds and speeds, all sorts of stuff can be changed each time the programme runs.

(1) Here is an example of how to use the various arc commands on a Heidenhain control.

You can programme circular arc moves in four different ways on this control.

“Why would I want to do that sounds complicated”

Actually it ain’t. The idea is you programme the same as your drawing.

  • The drawing gives me sharp corners. Use this button Heidenhain Programming Examples
  • The drawing gives me the centre of the radius. Use these two button.Heidenhain Programming Examples
  • My line is tangent to the circle. Use this. Heidenhain Programming Examples
  • End point and radius?  This buttons for you .Heidenhain Programming Examples
