A Message from Siemens Industry Inc.

Control your future...

SINUMERIK CNC gives you the greatest returns on your CNC investment.

Greatest Return on Machines.

“What comes out of the machine is a part cut in much less time – with repeated high quality.”  -- Tim Rietsma, True Die

Greatest Return on Operations

“Our CNC technology is based on where we want to be in ten years – it’s the backbone.” -- Tim Smith, Smiths Machine

Greatest Return on People

“The machinists that run our machines are professionals – not button pushers.”     -- Tim Hayden, Major Tool & Machine

As Seen In Production Machining

Siemens/Festo Didactic Partnership Takes Aim at Skills Gap
Siemens is partnering with Festo Didactic to offer a certification program to help students, instructors and learning institutions combat the skills gap in the rapidly changing manufacturing industry.

Factory Fills Market Gap with Steel Rotor Shafts
This article details Siemens Norwood’s implementation of a CNC mill-turn that enabled the company to manufacture steel rotor shafts to be used in Above NEMA electric motors, meeting a market demand for larger frame sizes, higher speeds and larger and stiffer rotor shafts.

CNC machine and employees

Mill-Turn Saves Time and Meets Market Demands
The Siemens Norwood Large Drives motor factory reduced setup times and met customer demand by purchasing a WFL M80 mill-turn capable of fluting, a process that can remove 60 percent more material with each pass than existing machines’ welding capabilities.   

Smart Operation software

Smart Operation Integrates Machines into Production Process
Siemens’ Smart Operation encompasses work processes surrounding the Sinumerik 840D sl CNC and simplifies the integration of machines into the production process.  

Siemens Event Introduces New Products and Emerging Communications
Siemens Factory Automation recently gathered with solution partners and end users for a four-day conference to share business ideas and strategies.

Converter servo drive system

Sinamics S210 Servodrive System Simplifies Motion Control
Siemens’ Sinamics S210 converter servodrive system is designed for use with the Simotics S-1FK2 motors and the converters come with integrated safety functions that enable engineering via motion technology objects in Simatic S7-1500 controllers. 

Wall-mounting kits

Wall-Mounting Kits are for Siemens G-Series Drive Platform
Siemens’ wall-mounting kits are for its Sinamics G120C and G120 PM240-2 modular drives and allow installation of the drives and conform to NEMA 1 and UL Type 1 standards for interior applications.

User interface

Sinumerik Operate Facilitates Setup of Complex Workpieces
Siemens Industry Inc.’s Sinumerik Operate user interface integrates HMI-Advanced, ShopMill and ShopTurn in a single end-user interface for machine tools that contain functions that facilitate the setup and manufacture of complex workpieces.

Machining cycle

Sinumerik CNCs Facilitate Four-Axis Turning
Siemens Industry Inc.’s expanded contour machining cycle for Sinumerik CNCs facilitates four-axis turning on lathes with two turning tools, opposite one another, machining the workpiece simultaneously, enabling the machining time to be significantly reduced. 

Siemens TAC classroom

Siemens Expands Tech Center
Siemens recently cut the ribbon to its expanded Technical Application Center in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. For training purposes, the facility offers three milling machines, a turning center, and other workstations, as well as two classrooms.

Siemens Partners with U.S. Technical Schools for L.E.A.P. Initiative
Made available through Siemens Cooperates with Education, the effort is designed to give high school and technical school graduates a basic to advanced machine tool knowledge that will benefit them in their future careers as CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machinists.

Siemens Partners with U.S. Tech Schools
Siemens has announced the launch of a new workforce development program for secondary and technical schools across America called L.E.A.P. (Lifelong Educational Advantage Program).

Simumerik Control for Four-Axis Turning on Lathes
With two additional parameters, the user expands the machining process for a tool into balanced cutting with two tools. The Sinumerik contour machining cycle automatically creates the CNC sequences.

Autodesk and Siemens Sign Agreement to Increase Software Interoperability
Partnership to help reduce manufacturers’ costs, streamline data sharing

Tongtai Machine & Tool Acquires Majority Stake in Anger Machining
The partnership of Tongtai, Anger, and Absolute Machine Tools will comprehensively serve customer needs for service, parts and application engineering support for the high-end Anger’ transfer centers.

Another Effort at Training New Machinists
Randy Pearson, Siemens international business development manager, is passionate about training for all levels of CNC machine tools. He recently wrote an article about this topic.

Tool Monitoring Increases Productivity
Shops that implement unattended machining to become more productive often use tool monitoring to make this process even more efficient.

CNCs Handle Milling, Turning Operations
Siemens’ panel-based Sinumerik 828D and Sinumerik 828D Basic compact CNCs are designed for milling and turning operations.

Fast and Precise Tool Identification
The use of industrial identification in tool handling not only saves time and costs during recording, transmission and management of the tool data, but also increases manufacturing quality and machine tool productivity.
