In today’s competitive manufacturing environment, the demands for more automation continue to increase. Recognizing this trend, Siemens has come forward with solutions to provide virtually seamless connectivity and operation from our SINUMERIK CNC systems to robotic systems. With the Run MyRobot functionality available within the SINUMERIK CNC, robots can be easily operated and programmed directly from the Siemens CNC, thus allowing operators with CNC programming and operation experience but without direct robot experience the ability to easily and confidently operate the entire system.
Robots using SINUMERIK 840D sl to load blanks and to perform pallet management have enabled the machine tool builder Alzmetall to achieve extremely high levels of productivity with its complex fi ve-axis mill-turning centers.
Only with a combination of SINUMERIK CNC control and robotic control is it possible to use robots for demanding machining tasks. With this combination, the integrated CAM/CNC process chain can be used from modeling to the fi nished NC program. Robot-specifi c kinematics and s p afety features are also available.
CNC production in the workshop can be automated at low cost with SINUMERIK and industrial robots.
