Heidenhain TNC 640

WinNC is a control-specific software solution to be installed on a standard PC.

As regards operation and functionality, it corresponds to the original control.

With the new EMCO WinNC for Heidenhain TNC640, the range of controls commonly used in industry has been expanded by another important version.

A precise simulation of the functionalities and user interfaces covers all training-relevant areas of the original control.

Comprehensive processing cycles simplify the creation of NC programmes.

Automatic measuring of position offsets

When scratching the measured workpiece the position offsets will be taken over.

Preliminary block run

Already finalized NC codes can be skipped.

Automatic measuring of tools

When scratching the reference workpiece the workpieces offsets can be taken over.

Dry run

In the run-up to the machining process collisions and programming mistakes can be avoided and corrected by using the dry run.

Editor with cycles and help images

The control includes an editor with cyxcles and help images for easier operation and programming.

Context sensitive help

By pressing the help buttun, the manual is opened at the approriate page and displayed on the screen.


Position offset management for a convenient ane efficient setup of the machine.

Contour processor with graphic simulation (Free contour programming)

Programming a 'free contour' with graphic representation (including selection options)

Homeschooling license

Extension of the multiple license. Any number of distance students can also install the programming stations off-site. The license is valid for 5 years and thus covers more than one teaching cycle.

Machine license

Control software for all EMCO CONCEPT machines

Single license

External programming station for all EMCO CONCEPT machines



Software demo / full version / homeschooling

Just give our WinNC software a try! All WinNC controls can be tested as demo versions free of charge and without obligation.

Our DEMO versions contain the full range of functions (only programming stations, direct control of machines is only possible via licensed software), but their useful life is limited to 30 days (from the date of installation).

By entering a valid license key all demo versions can easily converted into a full version or a homeschooling version at any time.

“Easy2control” adds a range of attractive applications to the successful interchangeable control system used in EMCO training machines.

Suitable for use in machines and simulation workplaces alike, it displays additional control elements directly on the screen and, when used together with a touchscreen monitor, provides the ideal input interface.

With support for a wide range of keyboard variants, customer-specific screen layouts and tailored solutions for individual customers, Easy2control represents a promising and highly flexible extension to the modular EMCO training concept.

The interchangeable controls are represented using an on-screen keyboard, which makes switching between different control systems even easier and quicker.

In the DEMO version of WinNC, Easy2control can be activated without a license key during the installation process or afterwards using the EMConfig configuration tool.


The Robotic-Interface is used for connecting a concept-machine to a FMS-/CIM-system.

The main-functions of a concept-machine can be automated via inputs and outputs of an optional hardware-module.


The DNC-Interface (Distributed Numerical Control) allowes a remote control of the control software (WinNC) via a software-protocol.

The DNC interface creates a connection between a superordinate computer (production master computer, FMS-computer, DNC-host computer etc.) and the control computer of an NC machine.

After activation of the DNC operation the DNC computer (Master) takes over the control of the NC machine (Client).

The entire production control is completely assumed by the DNC computer.

The automation devices such as doors, clamping chuck (collet), sleeve, coolant etc. can be controlled by the DNC computer.

The actual status of the NC machine is displayed on the DNC computer.


CAMConcept is innovative software for complete CAD/CAM and CNC training, from design to manufacture.

CAMConcept incorporates both the functions of a professional CAD/CAM system and the advantages of a special training program for machining technology.

All core CAD program functions are available.

Graphic displays of CNC cycles allow quick programming, while simulations and collision checks ensure that control programming is safe.

The 3D simulations make it perfect for training at programming stations, and also for making complex turning and milling workpieces simple to produce any time.

With its many functions, user-friendly operation and clear structure, CAMConcept is one of the leading software systems in the field of training.


Portable Machine Operating panel to operate the machine via hardware, includes axis buttons, feed override switch, mode switch etc. together with EMCO Easy2control.

EMCO Win3D-View

Win3D-View is a 3D simulation for turning and milling and is available as an option in addition to the WinNC Control. Graphic simulations of CNC controls are designed especially for industrial experience. Win3D-View displays exceed industry standards. Tools, blanks, clamping devices, and work processes are highly realistic. The system checks the programmed travel of the tool to prevent collision with clamping devices and blanks.

Concept machines

Whether for small businesses or for professional CNC training the Concept machines can be applied flexibly. With its modular concept the machine series can be used in a productional CIM network as well as for training purposes equipped with training softwares and coursewares.
