The SINUMERIK HT 8 integrates an operator panel and a machine control panel into one compact device that enables the user to visualize machine applications running on multiple SINUMERIK NCU/PCU operations without reconfiguration. The SINUMERIK 802D solution line computer numerical control is an operator panel-based control system that combines the numerical control (NC), the PLC and the HMI in a single unit. This line has the capability of five-axis machining (two of which may be spindles) and is the ideal solution for the low- and medium-range milling and turning machine markets.
