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.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.
The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...
