An easier way to operate and program multitasking machines

30.09.2015

EMO 2015 – Hall 3, Booth E06/F03

  • New software version 4.7 of the Sinumerik Operate user interface optimized for multitasking machine tools
  • Cross-technology, standardized look-and-feel for milling, turning, drilling and measuring functions
  • Complete machining in one clamping
  • Flexible NC programming using programGuide and ShopMill/ShopTurn

In the latest Version 4.7 of the Sinumerik Operate user interface, Siemens has improved the multitasking machining with machine tools in order to, for example, allow the complete machining of even highly complex workpieces.

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.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
