Immerse yourself in six decades of Siemens CNC. A success story told by all those who have witnessed and helped to shape it, or who still do so to this day. Colleagues, former employees and customers talk about the successes, obstacles and partnerships that shaped SINUMERIK then as now. Happy Birthday, SINUMERIK!
An evening in 1998 was not only set to herald the beginning of a unique partnership, but also significantly advance the establishment of SINUMERIK in the workshop. With perseverance, numerous test runs and a clear goal in mind, Siemens engineer Karsten Schwarz and the Pfeiffer company from Zirndorf near Nuremberg succeeded in making SINUMERIK more attractive and optimizing it for use in the workshop. Today, the two of them have long since set their eyes on the next goal: digitalizing all the machining processes within workshop production. A story about a partnership that began more than 20 years ago and continues to this day.
