Siemens offers new features for increasing machine precision with its software version 4.7 for Sinumerik Operate. User benefit: The new software-supported features increase machining precision while also improving machine productivity.
For example, the Sinumerik Auto Servo Tuning algorithm makes it possible to optimize machine dynamics so that control loop parameters and damping filters can be automatically calculated and adjusted for drive optimization.
Where flexible production leads to changes in the mass of workpieces, tool holders or tools on a machine, the parameters for increasing productivity and quality can be adjusted via Auto Servo Tuning. With the latest software version 4.7 for Sinumerik Operate the algorithm can be activated directly via the CNC program on the Sinumerik 840D sl. As a result, each time the processing parameters change, an optimization occurs between processing steps, leading to superior precision and maximum productivity.
The Adapt Jerk Filter Time (AJET) feature for the Sinumerik 840D sl starts by optimizing motion sequences. Producing a workpiece typically involves a sequence of interpolation and fast traverse. This is clearly evident in drilling patterns, for example.
AJET recognizes these different phases and switches between the parameters for precision and maximum acceleration. By automatically switching between operating parameters, a machine achieves the best possible quality during the machining phase and superior productivity during the positioning phase.
The latest software version 4.7 for the Sinumerik Operate also includes machine optimizations, such as improved friction compensation. Friction between materials occurs in every machine tool and has a negative effect on contour accuracy.
Today every Sinumerik includes friction compensation for just this reason, thereby proactively compensating for contouring errors due to static or sliding friction. With the latest software version 4.7, Sinumerik 840D sl and Sinumerik 828D also offer new speed-dependent compensation for friction, better eliminating friction-dependent path deviations. This ensures consistently high contour accuracy and workpiece precision. Guided masks perfectly support initial operation.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
