Added value with SINUMERIK

Applying the versatility of the SINUMERIK controller

Getting quicker the optimum result: SINUMERIK supports you with additional functions which reduce the expenditure and save time. The scope of functions ranges from the smooth setup of the machine to the useful tool management, through to individual configurations and efficient programming methods.

Easy and interactive setup

Thanks to the intelligent JOG mode, all the typical setup functions of machine tools are graphically supported in an interactive manner in SINUMERIK Operate. For example, a workpiece probe can be easily replaced with three mouse clicks only. Following a power failure, the tool can be retracted using the extended Retract function. At the same time, the machining process is continued properly at the point of interruption.

Time-saving tool management

The tool management transparently displays the tool data and magazine location information in one screen. An appropriate magazine location is selected automatically: Select tool, press button – and the SINUMERIK immediately provides a suitable magazine location. The tool life is also monitored, and a suitable replacement tool is loaded when required. This saves time when setting up the machine tool.

SINUMERIK Open Architecture – individual extensions in SINUMERIK Operate

With Open Architecture, SINUMERIK provides engineering interfaces which allow to further adjust the CNC equipment to the technological requirements arising on the relevant machine. This ensures a high level of freedom in manufacturing automation.

SINUMERIK programming methods

SINUMERIK supports three different CNC programming methods and fulfils various manufacturing requirements – from the manufacture of single parts through to large series production. This includes ShopMill and ShopTurn work step programming, the  SINUMERIK high-level language as well as DIN-ISO programming.

The right SINUMERIK CNC for your specific applications

In many cases, a SINUMERIK CNC is the right choice: For example, whenever new, revolutionary machine concepts are implemented. And of course whenever utmost productivity is requested for a specific machine tool application.

Programming manuals

Our programming manuals are tailored to the needs of programmers, technologists, and machine operators. Using simple programming examples, commands and instructions are explained according to DIN 66025, you are shown how to program a complex workpiece program, and learn how to program measuring cycles and perform sophisticated measurement tasks. The programming manuals will also help you to design programs and software user interfaces, and with troubleshooting.

This manual explains common commands and instructions according to DIN 66025 using simple programming examples.

This manual explains how to program complex workpiece programs (e.g. sculptured surfaces, channel coordination etc.).

This manual explains programming with measuring cycles, as required for performing special measurement tasks. The flexible structure of the measuring cycles makes it possible to perform nearly all measuring tasks required on milling or turning machines.

Function manuals

Our function manuals are tailored to the needs of project engineers, technologists (of machine manufacturers), and start-up engineers (of systems/machines). Function manuals teach you in detail how to handle the SINUMERIK functions.

This manual describes the SINUMERIK basic functions.

This manual describes the SINUMERIK special functions.

This manual describes the SINUMERIK extended functions.

This manual describes the configuration, programming, and functionality of the "tool management" function and its variants.
