SinuTrain for SINUMERIK Operate

Overview and version choice

The control identical programming station for production planning, CNC program creation, and training


  • CNC programming on the PC as on the CNC - same operation and programming
  • Work preparation even while the machine is still cutting: test, run in and simulate NC programs on the PC - less time-stress at the machine
  • CNC training and education with exactly the same programming and user interface as in the workshop - without waiting for "finally getting to it", without the danger of breaking something - and with the possibility of preparing and finishing work at home or on the road.

The advantage for workshop operators: More cutting time, fewer risks! 

With SinuTrain, one PC is sufficient for part programming, NC program testing, CNC training and employee training. The machine can meanwhile process parts. And each collision risk detected and eliminated in the SinuTrain simulation prevents damage.


SinuTrain versions

SinuTrain for SINUMERIK Operate uses the same CNC software as the controller. Therefore there is a dedicated SinuTrain version for every SINUMERIK Operate version - see below.


Like SINUMERIK Operate, SinuTrain for SINUMERIK Operate is cross-technology. Turning and milling machines are supported, as are turning/milling and milling/turning machines with 3, 3+2 and 5-axis simultaneous technologies in single and multi-channel applications.


Use basic functionality free of charge

For downloading, installing and using the basic functionality of SinuTrain you don't need a licence. With SinuTrain, the simulation of one standard lathe and one standard milling machine is already available as standard. The ShopTurn/ShopMill user interface is included in SinuTrain for SINUMERIK Operate as well as cycle support via programGUIDE.

Licensing: SinuTrain and the machines of your workshop

By licensing the "SinuTrain for SINUMERIK Operate" basic version becomes a full version. You can import the machine data of your real machine tools into the full version. SinuTrain for SINUMERIK Operate 4.7 and higher versions also include the SinuTrain workbench. There you can create several machines within SinuTrain - even with different and lower software versions. SinuTrain installation thus becomes PC-based work preparation for exactly your machines. You can run the programs created and/or tested here directly on the target machine - without an additional postprocessor or similar.


If you have several machines with the same SINUMERIK operating version, with the appropriate SinuTrain license you can import the machine data of all these machines into SinuTrain and transfer the programs created on SinuTrain to these machines.

If you want to integrate machines with different SINUMERIK Operate versions into SinuTrain, you need a separate SinuTrain license for each SINUMERIK Operate version.



Available versions and language packs

Older versions of SinuTrain 

The older versions of SinuTrain (classic) and SinuTrain for SINUMERIK Operate are discontinued and therefore no longer available for downloading.
