Performance boost for CNC hardware in the high-end segment

01.10.2015

EMO 2015 – Hall 3, Booth E06/F03

  • New powerful CPUs and panels for Sinumerik 840D sl
  • Shorter program runtimes, faster simulation
  • Larger memory and lower power consumption

In the course of introducing version 4.7 of the Sinumerik Operate software, Siemens is presenting new, more powerful CPUs, and 15 and 19 inch "Blackline" panels in widescreen format for the Sinumerik 840D sl CNC. The new 7x0.3B PN processors are Profinet-compatible NCUs (Numerical Control Units). The new processor technology, for example the NCU 730.3B PN, is up to 15 percent more powerful than the previously used components. The result is shorter program runtimes, faster simulation, and fast operation in all situations. The new technology, exemplified by the 720.3B PN and 730.3B PN NCUs, also consumes up to 50 percent less power which, in turn, causes the processors to generate less heat.

The basic configurations of the 7x0.3B PN-CPUs for the Sinumerik 840D sl already have 10 MB of buffered user memory as standard for part programs, and a 2 GB working memory (DRAM). The part program memory can be expanded up to 22 MB, depending on the particular processor model. In most cases, automatic adaptation of the drivers enables the new NCUs to be integrated into existing machines and applications without modifying the software. The new, long-term availability of the new NCU processor technology offers a secure future for newly developed machines – both for their subsequent further development and on account of the long-term availability of spare part components.

The new 15 and 19 inch "Blackline" panels are widescreen format touch screens. They are mainly characterized by good legibility, simple operation and a long service life. The technical basis of the display is a capacitive sensor system that supports touch operation even when gloves are worn. The panels are designed for degree of protection IP66 and are especially rugged. For example, the 15 inch panel is approved for vibration accelerations up to 2 g. Both the new devices have an integrated thin client unit (TCU) and are connected to the Sinumerik via Ethernet.

Background:

The new NCUs and panels expand the Siemens range of CNC systems and products. By using the new hardware components, companies can increase both the performance and the ease of operation of their machines.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

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...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

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...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

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...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

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....
