The presentation is focusing on the link between auxiliary robots and the CNC. The Sinumerik 840D controls robots through open interfaces. This enables companies to change flexibly from hand-guided to automated machine tool operation. Alongside technical innovations, the furthering of trainees is also being given center stage this year.
Siemens is also appearing on the special stand of the VDW (Association of German Machine Tool Works), where it is demonstrating the capabilities of CNC programming with the aid of Sinutrain training software. Siemens is also supporting the final round of the German CNC Milling and Turning Championships. All the competition tasks in Stuttgart are being performed on Sinumerik controlled machines.Flexibility, speed and the highest quality. Those are the challenges that shopfloor manufacturers have to set themselves. At the center of its presentation at this year's AMB, Siemens is placing solutions and products particularly suitable for helping small to medium-sized companies to increase their productivity. For the first time, Siemens is exhibiting the link between auxiliary robots and the Sinumerik 840D sl CNC. Sinumerik controls the robot through open, standardized interfaces. This enables machine tool users not only to handle standard tasks but also to switch flexibly to automated or series production. For example, by using robots to automate machine loading, machine tools can also run during non-working shifts, and so work nearer to their capacity. That is a major contribution to raising the degree of utilization and thus productivity.

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.
Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
