Expanded CNC programming software for operations planning, training and sales

02.09.2015

EMO 2015 – Hall 3, Booth E06/F03

  • Sinutrain 4.7 CNC programming station with controller identical to Sinumerik machine tool controllers with new, practical functions
  • Workbench interface with virtual machine hall as home page
  • DXF Reader imports CAD data and simplifies program creation
  • Simple loading of CNC machine data from commissioning archive
  • Training packages for students and training institutes, as well as a free basic version for training and sales

In Sinutrain version 4.7, Siemens has simplified its Windows PC-based offline programming software for machine tools, and equipped it with new, practical functions. For example, in the new workbench interface, the previous selection list has been replaced by a clear home page with animated images.

This enables the user to quickly obtain an overview as if he were in a virtual machine hall. He clicks on the desired machine to select it and is immediately taken to the correct programming interface for his NC program: to the workshop-oriented ShopMill/ShopTurn machining step programming, the cycle-supporting programGuide G code language, or the DIN and ISO commands.

The DXF (Drawing Interchange File Format) reader newly integrated in Sinutrain 4.7 simplifies both the exchange of data with CAD systems and the program creation. The CAD data is read in with a few clicks and part programs are created much more quickly.

The possibilities of creating new machine tools have also been improved. As an option, the IBN (commissioning) archive can now be read in from machine tools. This makes all the data stored in the CNC also available in Sinutrain. For example, manufacturers' cycles, including cycle images from machine manufacturers, can be copied from the real machine to Sinutrain.

The standard machining process templates have also been expanded in Sinutrain 4.7. These enable users to create executable programs quickly, e.g. for turning and milling machines. These include not only turning with or without a counterspindle, and 3 to 5-axis milling, but also combined milling-turning. This enables functional programs to be created easily for machine tools – irrespective of their size, power and manufacturer.

Another special feature available for the first time is the free basic version of Sinutrain 4.7 without any runtime restrictions. Sinutrain Basic can be obtained from www.siemens.com/cnc4you and is especially useful for sales and basic training. For example, programs from demonstration machines for 3-axis milling machines or 2-axis turning machines can be transferred to and executed on appropriate machining centers in the same way as with the full version. There are also special training packages for training institutions, with additional student licenses and programming manuals.

Background information:

Sinutrain is a Windows PC-based CNC programming station for machine tool controllers, which has an identical controller and uses the same programming and user interface as Siemens Sinumerik controllers. Sinutrain is used for operations planning, training and sales. Manufacturing companies use the software in their operations planning to program and simulate the next order offline in advance on a computer – without blocking expensive machine tools CNC programming is practiced in training in exactly the same way as on real machines. The field sales workers of machine and controller manufacturers just need laptops to demonstrate machine tool processes. Sinutrain has the same Sinumerik Operate user interface as Sinumerik machine tool controllers, so employees can work in the same engineering environment both offline and directly on the machine.

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...

Im Focus: Scientists improve forecast of increasing hazard on Ecuadorian volcano

Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and the Instituto Geofisico--Escuela Politecnica Nacional (IGEPN) of Ecuador, showed an increasing volcanic danger on Cotopaxi in Ecuador using a powerful technique known as Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR).

The Andes region in which Cotopaxi volcano is located is known to contain some of the world's most serious volcanic hazard. A mid- to large-size eruption has...
