Machine Tool Retrofit with SINUMERIK ONE

Leverage the full potential of your production

If the control or drive technology of your machine tool is outdated, but the mechanical components are still in good condition, a retrofit often is the economical alternative to investing in a new machine. We help you master your digital transformation so you can leverage the full potential of your machine and the machining process.

Our seven steps to a successful digital transformation

Would you like to identify hidden potential and leverage it? Our seven service steps cover the entire lifecycle of your plant and make a significant contribution to achieving your goals. Convince yourself and discover how easy digitalization can be.

Discovering potentials

We work with you to set goals and identify the action areas to optimize your production. If necessary, we perform a technical review of your plant and its system architecture. This lets us identify all the potential for digitalization. The end result is a digitalization strategy tailored to your needs and a roadmap for implementation. Your digital transformation starts here.

Digital Transformation Awareness & CNC Consulting

Develop your digitalization roadmap

Get ready for the digital transformation. Our on-site seminar helps you identify the opportunities and possibilities the digital transformation offers for your business. An additional seminar module lets you further expand your understanding of digital technologies in your organization and actively help shape the path of digitalization. A comprehensive workshop forms the heart of our consulting services. We work with you to discover your potential and develop your personal digitalization strategy.

Establishing a reliable action plan

With Digitalization Check as a Service we check your database and evaluate your hardware. We ensure that your machines are optimally connected to the IT system in your production. In doing so, we rely on standardized and scalable solutions. The result is an implementation plan to increase the digitization capability of your systems.

Creating the preconditions

Based on the digitalization check we upgrade your machine tools to the state or the art. For both Greenfield and Brownfield systems, we get your machine fleet ready for digitalization with Brownfield Connectivity Services, software updates, hardware upgrades or hardware retrofits. The necessary connectivity can be achieved at that point.

Brownfield Connectivity Service

Create networks for all kinds of production facilities

If there is no standard solution available, we use a gateway to connect your production network to the higher-level network – and that includes third-party devices, older controllers, and automation systems. You decide which data should be stored in which higher-level service and cloud systems.

Deploying the digital solutions

The next stage is implementation: We install the necessary software modules, configure them to your requirements, test them and put them into operation. We also connect your machine to the higher-level IT system. Now you have access to your data whenever you need it. This transparency forms the basis for further analysis. Our training programs ensure your employees can get the best out of the new applications.

Deriving optimization activities

Discover potential for optimization and improve your overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). For example, OEE is tracked using a monitoring system to ensure continuous optimization of production. We help you develop customer-specific dashboards and to perform data analysis. Moreover, we show you ways to use this knowledge to your advantage and thus extend the service life of your machines, save costs, and improve quality.

Improving manufacturing processes

We provide the right solutions for you to fully exploit the potential for optimizing your machines – and turn them into specific benefits for your production system. The main elements here are services like spare parts and repair services, service agreements, modernization activities like upgrades, retrofitting, and productivity improvement.

Ensuring availability

We are happy to look after the maintenance of your IT systems and machines. That’s why we have expanded our traditional range of services to include digitalized add-ons for remote support, increased machine transparency, proactive error analysis, and faster troubleshooting. Our database management and software updates ensure your IT system offers maximum availability. You can clear your mind and concentrate fully on your core business.

Enjoy the benefits of the Digital Twin

Shorten your time-to-market – optimize the commissioning process

NX Virtual Machine Tool Services

Running in new programs means non-productive machine time. But that time can now be passed on to the digital twin instead. With NX Virtual Machine Tool Services based on the NX Software suite we assist you to create an exact virtual representation of each of your machines to support you at every stage of the lifecycle of the digital twin.

SINUMERIK ONE Virtual Commissioning Services

We assist OEMs with the virtual commissioning of new machine tools. The requirements specific to the project are first analyzed, and then the virtual commissioning process is prepared and implemented. Simulations enable any errors to be detected and rectified at an early stage. Our software-in-the-loop solution for the SINUMERIK ONE controller functions entirely without hardware, significantly reducing the time needed to commission the real machine.

Traditional services

Constantly improve processes and performance

On the path to digital manufacture, our traditional services serve as a basis for definite and lasting improvement to your processes. We’re there to help you throughout the entire lifecycle of your production systems. Whether it’s for drives, motors or controllers, for mechanical engineers, dealers or machine operators, or for product development, production operation or optimization: You can find us wherever you are located – all around the world.

Retrofitting for machine tools

CNC retrofits are usually much more economical than a new investment

Retrofits for machine tools – what we offer

If the mechanical components in a machine tool are still in good condition, but the control or drive technology is no longer state-of-the-art, CNC retrofitting will often be much more economical than investing in a new machine. We update specific individual components to the state of the art. Even simply retrofitting at the control end can significantly reduce cycle times and improve quality..

Service agreements

Our service agreements are your assurance of availability, and therefore of your competitive advantage

Service agreements – what we offer

Short response times and the fastest possible fault repair by qualified service specialists: Our service agreements guarantee your availability. Our modular services are structured to suit your individual requirements. Service agreements are available for both mechanical engineers and machine operators.

Drive System Services

Our services throughout the entire lifecycle of your drive train

Drive System Services – what we offer

We are there to assist in all sectors, putting our experience and skills at your disposal with our range of services for the entire drive train, consisting of SINAMICS low-voltage converters and SIMOTICS servo motors. We are there wherever you need us, throughout the entire life cycle of your machine.

Productivity Improvement

Increase your productivity significantly

Productivity Improvement – what we offer

For intensively used machine tools with high capacity utilization, being able to use your machine capacity to the full offers a huge economic benefit. With Productivity Improvement, we offer analysis and assessment of manufacturing potential for machine tools equipped with SINUMERIK 840D. Measures to improve productivity are verified using simulation before they are implemented on the machine tool. Using our service you can be sure of productivity improvements of up to 15 percent. You can be free of performance bottlenecks and optimize your workflows.

Spare parts and repair services

For investment security and maximum quality and safety standards

Spare parts and repair services – what we offer

Our comprehensive service is available world-wide, in 150 locations in more than 70 regions, offering end-to-end spare parts strategies to deal with outages, or preventively, to improve your spare parts management.
