With TRANSLINE, Siemens offers a fully technical solution and a standardized system kit comprising components such as SIMATIC, SINUMERIK, SINAMICS, PROFIBUS, PROFINET, which can be freely selected to solve the relevant task – and which prove every day their productive interaction in ten thousands of manufacturing operations. A modular system facilitates the configuration, while all hardware and software components can neverless be adjusted to the individual needs. Our recipe for success: Uniform design, universality, simplicity – by always using the same hardware design, identical user interfaces, and the same tools for configuring, programming, commissioning and diagnosis.
Handling & Robotic Machining
To guarantee perfect workmanship and the highest possible product quality, BMW uses fi ve-axis machining centers equipped with SINUMERIK 840D sl and a range of new user interfaces for machining operations in its Berlin motorcycle plant.
Eberspaecher is a Tier-One supplier of complete exhaust systems. They manufacture stainless steel catalytic converters and exhaust products required by its impressive list of automotive customers, including Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Pontiac, Buick, Chevrolet and Mercedes-Benz. For their new catalytic converter can production line, Eberspaecher installed a laser-welding short-tube production cell. At the heart of this system is a “Twinmaster” roll-forming and laser-welding production system supplied by Weil Engineering North America of Troy, Michigan.
The tools provided by Solutions for Powertrain – Transline give the management of this Chinese automaker confi dence in high machine and plant availability, as well as optimal productivity.
Horkos installs a power-saving, environmentally friendly production line for Kia Motors in Slovakia to help the company improve its international market position.
At MS Design in Austria, 3+2-axis Geiss milling centers had proven their worth for years in the manufacture of high-quality automotive tuning components. The automation technology, however, was no longer state of the art and was reducing manufacturing performance. The smart solution: a retrofi t with an upgrade of the control and drive technology. The tried and tested milling centers can still be used and are now faster and more fl exible, while a new CAD/CAM connection creates more time for actual production.
The INDEX Group announced the North American debut of its new INDEX R200 turn-mill center, calling it a breakthrough in machine tool multi-tasking. INDEX has made a point of leveraging the unique performance capacities of the Siemens SINUMERIK 840D sl CNC, a control with a long history of preference within the aerospace and automotive sectors. In addition, he says that the broad Siemens technology platform has given INDEX an important overall lift by way of integrated machine design.
