Manufacturing automation and networking
Automate manufacturing and make the best use of resources with SINUMERIK software
Manufacturing with SINUMERIK offers the opportunity to optimize manufacturing processes in an integrated ecosystem of CNC functionality, process chain, robotics and resource management, and virtualization. In "brown field" environments with existing machines, the openness of the Siemens systems is used to also integrate third-party controls.
Whether it is a workshop, a contract manufacturer, a production department in a medium-sized city or an industrial company: Virtually every manufacturing operation benefits from planning and operating its processes using simulation techniques. Simulation techniques and shopfloor management software help to optimize the use of machines and other resources and to avoid production risks due to collisions, runtime errors or incorrect operation. Decreasing batch sizes and the increased volume of customized workpieces are strengthening this trend.
Manufacturing automation is being taken over more and more by CNC systems.CNC-controlled robots manage handling as well as setup and machining tasks. With the latest control systems, the robots are becoming an integral part of the virtualization and visualization with digital twins, thus achieving an unprecedented level of consistency in manufacturing automation.
