SINUMERIK Operate from the Machine Tool Division of Siemens Drive Technologies integrates the control and programming interfaces HMI-Advanced, ShopMill and ShopTurn in a single end-to-end interface for machine tools.
SINUMERIK Operate contains animated elements and allows intuitive operation and programming. New functions facilitate easy programming, set-up and machining of even complex work-pieces.
CNC Design’s Managing Director Bruce Rowley explains that the clearly-structured layout with context-based functions and self-explanatory icons is designed for machine operators.
He adds that the integrated simulation enables the program to be checked one operation at a time as it is programmed, which can be very powerful when combined with STEP programming in ShopMill or ShopTurn.
In addition to their highly functional features, Siemens SINUMERIK CNCs are now offered with user-friendly, intuitive operation that enables ease of use allowing less experienced operators to program and perform complex machining tasks.
Local Australian machine tool manufacturer Thomas Hegmann of H&H Machine Tools is very pleased with this development and offers 840Dsl with SINUMERIK Operate on his CNC gantry milling machines.
SINUMERIK Operate’s user interface enables users to work with the well-accepted ShopMill and ShopTurn step programming, which is tailor-made programming at the machine for the manufacture of individual parts and small batches.
Alternatively G-Code programming can be used with cycle support to ensure a high degree of flexibility.
