tools and will once again showcase some of the latest during three daily
live presentations during the upcoming IMTS show (Sept. 10-15) in
Chicago. Because of HEIDENHAIN's extremely large breadth of motion
control product lines, each of the three daily presentations will focus

" will be held, highlighting the TNC 640,
the most powerful 5-axis control on the market. HEIDENHAIN will present
a complete set of turning functions on an advanced milling control.
Highlights will include HEIDENHAIN's Connected Machining components such

smoothing functions.

Then daily at 1 p.m., a short discussion
titled "Thermal Protection for Torque Motors"
will be offered. Here, the speaker will focus on the importance of heat
management, whether it is to dissipate heat to achieve more power or to
ensure a system does not get damaged. Varying heat monitoring methods as
well as cooling methods, key datasheet values and how they affect
temperature will be discussed. Examples of unique motor designs by ETEL
for monitoring and cooling will also be shown.

Finally, daily at 3 p.m., a presentation on
"Rugged, Reliable Metrology" will be
given. Visitors are encouraged to stop by the booth for a quick review
of the shop-floor-ready QUADRA-CHEK Metrology line-up. Whether using a
Measuring Microscope, Optical Comparator or Vision System, QUADRA-CHEK
has a clean interface that is simple to learn and will allows users to
quickly and easily measure and document parts at the touch of a few
