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 For example, in the new workbench interface, the previous selection list has been replaced by a clear home page with animated images.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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
