New Sinumerik features improve productivity and precision

02.10.2015

EMO 2015, Hall 3, Booth E06/F03

  • Drive optimization called automatically by the part program boosts productivity
  • Automatically switching the dynamic values to rapid traverse and interpolation steps, improves both quality and speed
  • New compensations increase machine precision and reduce speed-dependent friction effects

Siemens offers new features for increasing machine precision with its software version 4.7 for Sinumerik Operate. User benefit: The new software-supported features increase machining precision while also improving machine productivity.

For example, the Sinumerik Auto Servo Tuning algorithm makes it possible to optimize machine dynamics so that control loop parameters and damping filters can be automatically calculated and adjusted for drive optimization.

Where flexible production leads to changes in the mass of workpieces, tool holders or tools on a machine, the parameters for increasing productivity and quality can be adjusted via Auto Servo Tuning. With the latest software version 4.7 for Sinumerik Operate the algorithm can be activated directly via the CNC program on the Sinumerik 840D sl. As a result, each time the processing parameters change, an optimization occurs between processing steps, leading to superior precision and maximum productivity.

The Adapt Jerk Filter Time (AJET) feature for the Sinumerik 840D sl starts by optimizing motion sequences. Producing a workpiece typically involves a sequence of interpolation and fast traverse. This is clearly evident in drilling patterns, for example.

AJET recognizes these different phases and switches between the parameters for precision and maximum acceleration. By automatically switching between operating parameters, a machine achieves the best possible quality during the machining phase and superior productivity during the positioning phase.

The latest software version 4.7 for the Sinumerik Operate also includes machine optimizations, such as improved friction compensation. Friction between materials occurs in every machine tool and has a negative effect on contour accuracy.

Today every Sinumerik includes friction compensation for just this reason, thereby proactively compensating for contouring errors due to static or sliding friction. With the latest software version 4.7, Sinumerik 840D sl and Sinumerik 828D also offer new speed-dependent compensation for friction, better eliminating friction-dependent path deviations. This ensures consistently high contour accuracy and workpiece precision. Guided masks perfectly support initial operation.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

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,...

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...
