SINUMERIK ONE - the digital native CNC


Digitalization has for years been the buzzword in all industries. But what does this mean specifically for the machine tool industry? How do you implement digitalization in CNC in a practical context?

Existing CNC controls can be made fit for the future by integrating various digitalization functions. And it's possible to break new ground. Our new SINUMERIK ONE control system has built-in digitalization from the very start. Why is it a "Digital Native CNC"? Because it was developed virtually itself. This gives machine manufacturers and operators the option of developing their own products in a purely virtual environment.

Here are a few facts about SINUMERIK ONE:

  • Digital twin as an integral part of the CNC
  • Drive- and panel-based modular CNC
  • Multi-technology CNC
  • Up to 31 axes/spindles and any number of PLC axes
  • Any number of machining channels
  • Up to 24" multi-touch color display
  • SIMATIC S7-1500F PLC

What benefits do you have with SINUMERIK ONE?

Massive increase in machine and machining performance
  • Productivity gains in the double-digit percentage range
  • Computationally intensive tasks (e.g. collision monitoring) during the machining process without restrictions
  • Significantly reduced process downtime thanks to powerful PLC

New opportunities and approaches thanks to the integrated digital twin

Create MyVirtual Machine:
  • Engineering the machine even before real prototypes are available
  • Easier and faster development of customized machine concepts for special machines or customer-specific adaptations for series machines
  • Simulation of machine behavior: system and function test is carried out virtually

Run MyVirtual Machine:

  • Familiarization with machine operation before delivery of the machine
  • Simulation of (complex) operating situations without damage to virtual machines
  • Simulation of the workpiece's feasibility on the machine
  • Precise calculation of the program duration for a workpiece
  • Calculations and creation of the parts program on the PC in the office


  • Access to the latest innovations in automation technology
  • Integrated security mechanisms to protect networked machines from unauthorized access
