Performance boost for CNC hardware in the high-end segment

01.10.2015

EMO 2015 – Hall 3, Booth E06/F03

  • New powerful CPUs and panels for Sinumerik 840D sl
  • Shorter program runtimes, faster simulation
  • Larger memory and lower power consumption

In the course of introducing version 4.7 of the Sinumerik Operate software, Siemens is presenting new, more powerful CPUs, and 15 and 19 inch "Blackline" panels in widescreen format for the Sinumerik 840D sl CNC. The new 7x0.3B PN processors are Profinet-compatible NCUs (Numerical Control Units). The new processor technology, for example the NCU 730.3B PN, is up to 15 percent more powerful than the previously used components. The result is shorter program runtimes, faster simulation, and fast operation in all situations. The new technology, exemplified by the 720.3B PN and 730.3B PN NCUs, also consumes up to 50 percent less power which, in turn, causes the processors to generate less heat.

The basic configurations of the 7x0.3B PN-CPUs for the Sinumerik 840D sl already have 10 MB of buffered user memory as standard for part programs, and a 2 GB working memory (DRAM). The part program memory can be expanded up to 22 MB, depending on the particular processor model. In most cases, automatic adaptation of the drivers enables the new NCUs to be integrated into existing machines and applications without modifying the software. The new, long-term availability of the new NCU processor technology offers a secure future for newly developed machines – both for their subsequent further development and on account of the long-term availability of spare part components.

The new 15 and 19 inch "Blackline" panels are widescreen format touch screens. They are mainly characterized by good legibility, simple operation and a long service life. The technical basis of the display is a capacitive sensor system that supports touch operation even when gloves are worn. The panels are designed for degree of protection IP66 and are especially rugged. For example, the 15 inch panel is approved for vibration accelerations up to 2 g. Both the new devices have an integrated thin client unit (TCU) and are connected to the Sinumerik via Ethernet.

Background:

The new NCUs and panels expand the Siemens range of CNC systems and products. By using the new hardware components, companies can increase both the performance and the ease of operation of their machines.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.

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...
