Set-up of automated cells made simple

17.07.2015

Siemens at the EMO 2015 – Hall 3, Booth E06/F03

  • Sinumerik Integrate Run MyRobot/EasyConnect connects robots to machine tools swiftly and simply to Sinumerik 828D
  • Implementing automated production processes covering all aspects of machine tools
  • Remote monitoring and maintenance of machine tools

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.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

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...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

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...
