Milling expertise of SINUMERIK

Here you can see our motion control solution for milling application in action.



SINUMERIK MDynamics means best in class for motion control and perfect workpiece surfaces, where surface quality, precision, and speed all get top marks.  The SINUMERIK MDynamics technology package gives the machine operator access to unlimited NC programs and workpiece documents, paperless production and visualization of geometries in toolmaking and moldmaking in next to no time. The intuitive user interface of SINUMERIK Operate supports all applications. 

Top Surface und Top Speed

SINUMERIK combines Top Surface with Top Speed to offer innovative path planning and velocity control, producing top best surface quality and machining speeds. The intelligent path planning of Top Surface optimizes CAM data for the subsequent SINUMERIK path control. With Top Speed, you can execute programs with increased machine dynamic response without producing mechanical vibrations in the machine.  This combination of functions makes for a significant increase in the machining speed while maintaining optimum machining quality.

Intelligent Load Control / Intelligent Dynamic Control

With the functions Intelligent Load Control / Intelligent Dynamic Control, machine parameters can be changed depending on the current load and axis position to make full use of the machine dynamic performance. This produces the best machining result for every workpiece weight and at every position in the working area of the machine. This results in shorter machining times coupled with higher machining quality.

Collision Avoidance

The functions of SINUMERIK for collision avoidance can be used to protect the machine, workpiece, clamp, or tool from collision. The monitoring function is supported in control modes JOG, MDA, and AUTO. A version integrated in the control offers collision protection of the entire machine.  If SINUMERIK Edge has been implemented, collision monitoring and avoidance can be moved out of the control without any loss of real-time capability. The result is holistic collision protection while the full performance of the SINUMERIK system is dedicated to machining.
