In the latest Version 4.7 of the Sinumerik Operate user interface, Siemens has improved the multitasking machining with machine tools. Sinumerik Operate and the Sinumerik 840D sl CNC control combine several machining technologies – such as turning, milling and drilling, as well as workpiece and tool measuring – on one machine tool. This ensures the complete machining of highly complex workpieces. With its cross-technology, standardized and intuitive look-and-feel Sinumerik Operate supports the user in performing everyday tasks.
Sinumerik Operate Version 4.7 comprises among others extended setup and manual modes (JOG), which now interactively support the user when setting up milling-turning machines. There is also a new measuring function for approached turning tools, in which the setting screen automatically changes depending on the tool type to be measured. In addition, the workpiece measurement has been improved, now enabling the user to easily check and specify the workpiece zero on the component. In addition, Siemens has simplified the approach of turning tools in tool setup mode (TSM): When the user selects a turning tool, the machine automatically switches to turning mode.
The tool management has also been extended in Sinumerik Operate Version 4.7. The display shows transparently at a single glance all the tools for the technologies used on the multitasking machine. With the redefinition of a tool, turning tools and complex tools such as multitools are now represented as icons. This simplifies the operation and is an advantage, for example, during complete machining processes: The user can view the tool and magazine data for milling and turning tools in one display, including all details.
With new functions for flexible programming with programGuide and the workshop-compatible programming with ShopMill/ShopTurn, Siemens is simplifying multitasking machining. For example, the Cycle800 swivel cycle now combines turning and milling technologies in one user interface. The Cycle952 contour turning cycle permits 4-axis stock removal on multi-channel turning machines. In the programGuide turning cycles, a graphic contour calculator supports users during the data input and guides them through the parameter setting via a dialog. In ShopTurn, all approached tools are now programmable graphically and interactively, and milling is now also possible on turning machines.
The Sinumerik Operate user interface for the Sinumerik machine tool controls supports all machining procedures offered on multitasking machines across all technologies. For example, series manufacturers and jobshops can now machine workpieces efficiently and completely in one clamping. Apart from the most frequently used turning, milling and drilling technologies and the measurement functions, a multitude of additional production technologies can now be implemented on a customer-specific basis: These include grinding, gear hobbing and hob grinding, laser, electron-beam and plasma welding, eroding, laser and water-jet cutting, nibbling, honing and shaping.
Sinumerik Operate makes multitasking machining consistently possible for all technologies. The tool management supports the respective milling and turning tool types in all fields of application. NC programming with DIN/ISO and cycles is possible in programGuide or graphically in ShopMill/ShopTurn. In addition, Sinumerik Operate offers workpiece simulation, both for turning-milling and for milling-turning.

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,...
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...
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...
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...
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...
