IMTS 2014: CNC For Milling Machines



SCHAUMBURG, IL (June 2014) – The easiest-to-operate new CNC for vertical knee mills on the market today will be on display at this year’s IMTS 2014 Show in Chicago at McCormick Place (September 8-13).  Called the MILLPWRG2 CNC, this long-awaited control for milling machines is being noted as “Powerful Easy,” and is even more powerful than its well-known MILLPWR predecessor.  As a brand of HEIDENHAIN, this ACU-RITE control will be on display in that Booth # E-5284.
Extremely intuitive, the programming on the MILLPWRG2 control is done via easy-to-understand plain language user prompts that are accompanied by 3-D graphic “Help” forms that clearly describe each cycle step, creating an instinctive interface that maximizes efficiency and increases production.  Using simplified navigation that eliminates multiple menu screens, the MILLPWRG2 has continued the spirit of the original MILLPWR while improving on its wildly popular interface and functionality by maintaining the same programming language and incorporating an all new “Powerful Easy” navigation system.MILLPWRG2 Control

Additionally, the G2 adds new standard features like USB, networking accessibility, solid model graphics and new large 12.1” high resolution display (1024 x 768).   And built on the proven HEIDENHAIN NC Kernel platform, the MILLPWRG2 boasts a 1 GHz processor with 2.5 GB of memory.

Other enhancements include expanded tool and datum offsets for the more complicated jobs.  For more information, please go to or contact John Parker at

ACU-RITE products are represented and distributed through parent company HEIDENHAIN Corporation based in Schaumburg, IL. ACU-RITE products include digital readouts, precision glass scales, and CNC controls, manufactured in an ISO 9001-certified facility in Jamestown, NY.
