New technology package for milling applications

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: Novel light sources made of 2D materials

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.

So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
