Increased productivity in production

SINUMERIK 808 – perfectly preconfigured CNC system for basic machines

The SINUMERIK 808D ADVANCED control is a panel-based CNC for the basic performance range. This compact and user-friendly entry-level solution is used for basic turning and milling applications. Features such as simple operation, easy commissioning and maintenance – and also an optimum cost position – represent the perfect basis for equipping entry-level CNC machines.

Optimized for basic turning and milling applications

As a result of its technology-specific version, the SINUMERIK 808D ADVANCED control system is perfectly preconfigured for turning and milling. The range of applications addressed extends from basic milling machines or simple machining centers, through cycle-controlled lathes – up to basic full CNC lathes. For simple milling functions, based on its hardware and software expansions, SINUMERIK 808D ADVANCED offers sufficient performance for mold making and toolmaking.

Compact and rugged

Thanks to a panel-based CNC design with few interfaces and an operator panel with IP65 degree of protection, SINUMERIK 808D ADVANCED is the perfect answer for applications running in harsh environmental conditions. The small dimensions of these units allow them to be used in compact machines. SINUMERIK 808D ADVANCED controls are available in two PPU (Panel Process Unit) versions: PPU 15x and PPU 16x with different performance.

Ideal for entry-level machine operators

Based on the integrated and innovative startGUIDE – and the standard SINUMERIK operating and programming philosophy – SINUMERIK 808D ADVANCED is the ideal partner when entering the world of CNC. Commissioning is also explained interactively in a graphic form.

The powerhouse in the background

SINUMERIK 808D ADVANCED controls, teamed-up with SINAMICS drives and SIMOTICS motors, are optimally designed to address the requirements of standardized machines.

SINAMICS V70 – small and powerful

The SINAMICS V70 drive concept is simply unbeatable when it comes to price-sensitive entry-level machines. The compact design of the single-axis, fanless motor modules ensures the highest degree of ruggedness. The motor modules can be quickly adapted to address the requirements of feed axes by simply setting a few parameters. The SINAMICS V70 drive system is optimally complemented by SIMOTICS S-1FL6 servomotors, SIMOTICS M-1PH1 spindle motors – and the appropriate cable.
