    As the company explains, the basis for manufacturing highly accurate workpieces with exceptional surface quality is provided both by the encoders for axis positioning, which are ideally arranged in a closed-loop system, and the systems used for conducting in-process measurements of the tool and workpiece directly within the working space of the machine. To this end, the German manufacturers will be introducing the new Heidenhain-Specto ST 3087 RC length gauge, the TS 460 and TT 460 touch probes with new interface technology, and the VS 100 camera system for monitoring the setup and machining situation. A special demo unit will reportedly be installed at the booth to clearly demonstrate the difference in accuracy between a closed-loop control and a conventional semi-closed-loop control operating on an axis.
