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 For example, in the new workbench interface, the previous selection list has been replaced by a clear home page with animated images.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.
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.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
