CHICAGO, Sept.13, 2010 - Siemens Industry, Inc. announced today that the new Sinumerik® MDynamics technology package for milling applications will be on display at this year's International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago. The technology package combines CNC hardware, intelligent CNC functions and the complete CAD/CAM/CNC process chain for industries with very high requirements regarding surface quality, precision and machining speeds. Sinumerik MDynamics is especially suitable for applications in automotive and aircraft construction, power engineering and medical part manufacturing, as well as in job shop production and tool- and mold-making.
The three-axis technology package for the Sinumerik 840D sl, for example, includes not only a new and improved form of motion control, but also innovative set-up functions, as well as a new tool and program management system. Workpiece programming is facilitated by new programming functions and the ShopMill machining step programming. Innovative technology cycles, automatic measuring cycles, residual material detection, 3D simulation to support programming as well as efficient high-speed cutting (HSC) functions have also been integrated. New HMI functions, easy data and program handling with an additional Compact Flash (CF) card memory, spline interpolation and workpiece simulation for multi-face machining complete the package.
The five-axis package is supplemented by the Cycle996 kinematic measuring cycle, 3D radius compensation and expanded five-axis functions, including integrated kinematic Transformation Tool Center Point programming (TRAORI). The new integrated High-Speed Setting Cycle832 ensures rapid adaptation to the machining strategy. Innovative technology cycles for trochoidal or plunge milling enable fast, simple and efficient workpiece machining. User-friendly and speedy handling of complex workpieces, in both JOG and automatic mode, is possible with the new Cycle800 swivel cycle for complete machining. The remaining runtime display and the visualization of large mold-making programs support the operator during machining. For more information, please call +1 800 879 8079 ext.
