Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc., will present its new SINUMERIK 802D solution line computer numerical control (CNC) at this year’s WESTEC show in Los Angeles, March 26 – 29, 2007. Standalone and plant-wide automation solutions can be designed more efficiently by combining SINUMERIK’s network-centric architecture with the new drive technology from Siemens.
The SINUMERIK 802D sl is a single unit, operator panel-based control system that includes a numerical control (NC), programmable logic controller (PLC), and human machine interface (HMI). It is capable of five-axis machining (two of which may be spindles) and is ideal for the low- and medium-range milling and turning machine markets.
The product’s benefits include increased efficiency and productivity; convenient operation and programming through advanced programming support, such as Siemens’ ShopMill and ShopTurn; and perfect handling via commercially available compact flash (CF) boards for storage, transmission, and processing of part programs. Standard Ethernet and PROFIBUS protocols are used for machine tool communication.
For the first time, “thin client technology” is being used for operator input. The drives communications system, Drive CLiQ, has improved diagnostics and fast drive recognition via the electronic type plate.
The new SINUMERIK solution line is compatible with the existing SINUMERIK CNC family.
