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.
