New technology package for milling applications

06.07.2009
At this year's EMO trade show, Siemens Drive Technologies is showcasing for the first time the new Sinumerik MDynamics technology package for milling applications.

The technology package combines CNC hardware, intelligent CNC functions and the complete CAD/CAM/CNC process chain for industries with very high requirements regarding surface quality, precision and machining speeds.

MDynamics is especially suitable for applications in automotive and aircraft construction, power engineering and medical systems as well as in workshop manufacturing and tool and mold making.

Exact surface machining and precise contouring – both at high speed – are factors that significantly affect manufacturing productivity and workpiece quality. Siemens is using this year's EMO specialist trade fair to present its Sinumerik MDynamics technology package for milling applications in industry.

The package includes CNC hardware, intelligent CNC functions and the entire CAD/CAM/CNC process chain. There is a package version for 3-axis milling machines as well as a version for 5-axis machines, and they can be used for the Sinumerik control systems in the Compact and Premium classes.

The 3-axis technology package for the Sinumerik 840D sl, for example, includes not only a new and improved form of motion control, but also innovative setup functions as well as a new tool and program management system. Workpiece programming is facilitated by new programming functions as well as the ShopMill machining step programming.

Innovative technology cycles, automatic measuring cycles, 3D simulation to support programming and bid costing as well as efficient HSC functions have also been integrated. New HMI functions, easy data and program handling with an additional CF card memory, spline interpolation and workpiece simulation for multiface machining round off the package.

The 5-axis package is supplemented by automatic residual-material identification and the Cycle996 kinematic measuring cycle. 3D radius compensation and expanded 5-axis functions, including integrated kinematic Transformation Tool Center Point programming (TRAORI), are also part of the overall milling package.

The new integrated HighSpeed Setting Cycle832 ensures rapid adaptation to the machining strategy. Innovative technology cycles for trochoidal or plunge milling enable fast, simple and efficient workpiece machining. User-friendly and speedy handling of complex workpieces in a clamp in both JOG and automatic modes is possible with the new Cycle800 swivel cycle for complete machining. The remaining runtime display and the visualization of large mold making programs support the operator during machining.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
