Sinumerik Operate contains animated elements and allows intuitive operation and programming. New functions mean that even complex workpieces are easy to set up and manufacture in a clamp.
At this year's EMO trade fair, Siemens Drive Technologies will be exhibiting the new end-to-end user interface Sinumerik Operate on the new computerized numerical control Sinumerik 828D and Sinumerik 840D sl for the first time. Sinumerik Operate integrates the established user and programming interfaces HMI-Advanced, ShopMill and ShopTurn in a single interface for machine tools. It enables sequence and high-level language programming in a single interface and thereby ensures fast NC programming and work preparation. The clearly-structured layout with contextbased functions and self-explanatory icons facilitates intuitive handling for machine operators.
Various different kinematics are also easy to set up, while integrated simulations and a large number of diverse workpiece views also make it easy to check the programming immediately. It is also possible to zoom into angled levels individually while a simulation is running.
When setting up a workpiece, the measurements are shown in an easy-to-understand way using animated elements, both for switched and manual tool measurement features. With the Cycle 800 “swivel cycle” it is possible to manufacture even extremely complex workpieces in a clamp with simple and fast handling. With the new Sinumerik Operate user interface, users now have access to an optimized tool and program management system. The tool list makes all relevant data available in a clearly structured manner and also offers a configurable display. Thanks to its use of context-based functions and self-explanatory icons, it is also simple and intuitive to use.
With the innovative Sinumerik Operate user interface, the familiar, tried and tested programming methods are available. The ShopMill and ShopTurn sequence programming constitutes a tailormade programming solution for the manufacture of individual parts and small batch sizes. The programGUIDE brings together G-Code programming with cycle support. This ensures a high degree of flexibility and short machining times, and is above all suitable for medium to large batch sizes.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
