At EMO in Hall 25, Booth D33, Siemens will show its Sinumerik CNC portfolio for everything from simple machine tools through standardized machine concepts to modular premium solutions, complete with “smart machine” solutions for the economical manufacture of high-end workpieces. It is working toward the consistent expansion of this CNC technology expertise.

The innovations presented by Siemens will consequently focus on smart function improvements, which will make for greater CNC operating convenience, increase precision at the workpiece and allow greater machining safety across every category of machine, from the compact to the high-end solution, the company states. A new function to protect against unwanted component collisions will be showcased by Siemens, for example, alongside improvements to its cohesive Sinumerik Operate user interface, including upgraded simulation options.

The Sinumerik CNC portfolio is additionally playing an increasingly important role in preparing the ground for the next step in the evolution of CNC production, also within the framework of the Siemens Integrated Drive System (IDS). With a view to optimizing the addition of value across the entire process chain through consistent integration, IDS is used to integrate all the components of the drive train consistently into the complete production process environment. This also applies to Sinumerik CNC system solutions.

For every Sinumerik application, ideally coordinated system components such as high-powered Sinamics drives and Simotics motors have always been used as the ideal complements. Alongside horizontal integration of the entire drive train, with Sinumerik Integrate for Production, Siemens is also allowing vertical integration within the control architecture of industrial manufacturing automation. As the example of a leading passenger car manufacturer illustrates, this type of vertical and horizontal integration within the production process can speed up the series start for a new vehicle by up to 50 percent.
