The TNC 128 is a straight-cut CNC control for use with milling, drilling, and boring machines.
The control assists users during program creation with “Help” graphics, practical prompts, machining cycles, and cycles for coordinate transformation. NC conversational keys on the TNC operating panel make program entry more convenient than its predecessor.
The control has an integrated 12.1‑in. TFT color flat-panel display. The display, TNC, machine operating panels, and main computer (with Celeron Dual Core 1.4-GHz CPU) sit as one unit in the stainless-steel operating panel. The TNC 128 controls up to four axes and one spindle; if the spindle is configured in an open loop, the TNC 128 can control up to five axes. Also, the control allows the connection of touch probes and edge finders.
