Version 4.7 of Siemens’ Sinumerik Operate software includes new features for increasing machining precision while also improving machine productivity.

The Auto Servo Tuning algorithm is designed to optimize machine dynamics so control loop parameters and damping filters can be automatically calculated and adjusted for drive optimization. This algorithm can be activated directly via the CNC program on the Sinumerik 840D sl. The Adapt Jerk Filter Time (AJET) feature for the CNC starts by optimizing motion sequences, automatically switching between operating parameters during machining and positioning phases.

Version 4.7 of the software also includes improved, speed-dependent friction compensation, which ensures consistently high contour accuracy and workpiece precision, the company says.
