Heidenhain’s Acu-Rite MILLPWR control is now also available for bed mills with AC motors.

“This new bed mill control package offers many useful machining features including full 3-D contouring capabilities. It is available as a complete retrofit package for 2- or 3-axis machines or already installed on many new machines,” the company said in a statement.

“With its conversational 2-1/2 axis shop floor programming and built-in calculators, the MILLPWR continues to provide convenience to machinists by eliminating time-consuming calculations and the need to learn complicated programs. In addition, it has the ability to run G-code files from CAD/CAM programs, which gives users the capability of the full 3-D contouring. Consequently, it maximizes productivity for machinists of all levels, from the less experienced operator to the most seasoned veteran.”
