EMO 2015 – Hall 3, Booth E06/F03
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.
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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
