Siemens at the EMO 2015 – Hall 3, Booth E06/F03
With the Sinumerik 828 controllers, Siemens is now offering a simple solution for connecting robots to machine tools. This represents an integral part of automated production cells set-up. To perform handling tasks, different types of robots designed by different manufacturers can now be connected to machines fitted with CNC controllers Sinumerik 828D using the Sinumerik Integrate Run MyRobot/EasyConnect interface.
This enables companies of any size to set up automated cells even on serial machines cost-effectively and without any major effort – even with different types of CNC controls using the same standard interface. Features for the simple optimization of work processes on machine tools, mobile condition monitoring and remote maintenance round off the new solution for setting up automated cells.
Sinumerik Integrate Run MyRobot/EasyConnect is based on a standard defined by the German Machine Tool Builders' Association (Verein Deutscher Werkzeugmaschinenfabriken, VDW) and the German Engineering Association (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, VDMA) for connecting robots or handling systems to machine tools. To make it as easy as possible to use the interface, Siemens has merely taken over the main elements of the comprehensive standard. The robots are connected through an Ethernet (Profinet RT) or using I/O signals.
Using the new interface, operators can easily synchronize processes between the machine tool and robots, thereby positioning efficient processes in the automated production cell.
Fully automated work processes are another important aspect of setting up automated cells covering all aspects of machine tools, starting off with preparatory work through to accessing all the necessary information and data at the machine and efficiently operating the machine right up to using mobile terminal equipment for visualizing machine conditions. Siemens provides a comprehensive range of smart operation features. Smart touch technologies are thus being integrated into the production environment. At the same time, operators can access network memories and can inspect contract documents at the user interface. The concept also includes an application for preparatory work at the PC, for instance, for creating partial programs.
Functions facilitating remote diagnosis of machine tools are the third component of the solution for setting up automated cells. With Sinumerik Integrate Access MyMachine, Siemens provides convenient and reliable functions for remote diagnosis using a corporate network or Internet access. The basic Access MyMachine/P2P application facilitates the exchange of data with connected machines from a Windows PC. An IP address is used for addressing purposes within the plant network. Operators can access the machine over the Internet or outside the plant network if the application is appropriately configured. The comprehensive Sinumerik Integrate Access MyMachine/Ethernet (ASP) provides a quick overview of the machine history in addition to machine access. The Sinumerik controller permits uploading and downloading machine data, files, trip recorders, and configurable PLC traces. Text message (SMS) or e-mail notifications in cases of unusual machine conditions are also possible. ASP grants cost-effective monitoring of fault states and comprehensive integration of in-house service and maintenance processes.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
