SYSTEMS AND SOFTWARE MMS JUNE 2018 168 DROs Offer Useful Software Features Heidenhain's Acu-Rite brand has released a line of three digital readouts (DROs) with software features and hardware for milling, turning, grinding and boring applications. The models support soft- ware features that include an Installation Guide that appears at first-time power up, as well as Dynamic Zoom that, once activated, enlarges the display values for the axis being moved at a given point. This enables the user to immediately see which axis is cur- rently in motion. The DRO100 unit has been designed as a functional, yet simple DRO that can be easily understood by the operator. The DRO203 offers all the basic func- tions, plus common features for both milling and turning applications such as bolt- hole calculations for milling and vectoring/taper ratio for turning. The DRO300 high- end programmable model is available in three- and four- axis variants. It is the only unit in the series offering the connector for external switching functions. | Heidenhain Corp. 800-233-0388 Laser Control Features Tablet- Style Interface Mitsubishi Laser has added its M800 control technology to the Advanced 800-series eX-F fiber laser machine.
