Siemens Introduces Sinumerik 802D Solution Line, the Ideal Solution for Low- and Medium-Range Milling and Turning Machines
WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass., May 23, 2006 - Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. is debuting its new SINUMERIK 802D solution line computer numerical control (CNC) at this year's EASTEC show in West Springfield, MA. By combining the network-centric architecture of SINUMERIK solution line and SINAMICS, the new and innovative drive technology from Siemens, standalone as well as plant-wide automation solutions can be efficiently designed.
The SINUMERIK 802D is an operator panel-based control system that combines the numerical control (NC), the programmable logic controller (PLC) and the human machine interface (HMI) in a single unit. It has the capability of five-axis machining (two of which may be spindles) and is the ideal solution for the low- and medium-range milling and turning machine markets.
Benefits for end-users include increased efficiency and productivity; convenient operation and programming through advanced programming support such as Siemens' ShopMill and ShopTurn; and perfect handling through the use of commercially available compact flash (CF) boards for the storage, transmission and processing of part programs. Additionally, 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, called "DRIVE-CLiQ", provides improved diagnostics and fast drive recognition via the electronic type plate.
The new SINUMERIK solution line is fully compatible with the existing SINUMERIK CNC family. This provides users with the peace-of-mind when changing to the new system platform. It is a secure, future-proof and innovative investment for both machine tool manufacturers and end-users alike.
