CNC for the Job or Machine Shop has never been easier or more powerful. With Siemens, you no longer need to know G-code. Simply enter the shape of the part and how fast you want to make each cut and our advanced ShopMill and ShopTurn software does the rest.
Meet exacting quality standards
Manufacture small lot sizes economically
Control production at the touch of a button
SINUMERIK 808D, 828D, and 840D sl numeric control systems are flexible, productive and economical. Designed with typical jobshop manufacturing tasks and machines in mind, these solutions make CNC turning and milling machines considerably easier to use and ensure the machining process is highly effective.The panel-based SINUMERIK 828D CNC control system is tailor-made for compact turning and milling machines in jobshop manufacturing. Possible applications can range from vertical and standard horizontal machining centers to inclined bed-turning machines with a processing slide, featuring a Y axis and counter spindle. Its unique machining performance guarantees mirror-smooth surfaces with the shortest possible machining times.Our practical and user-friendly ShopMill and ShopTurn programming solutions are tailored to meet the specific requirements of jobshop manufacturing. This also means that you do not need DIN/ISO knowledge because programming is based on dialog boxes and graphics.
Easier to use CNC means shorter learning curves
No G-code or DIN/ISO knowledge necessary
Quick, graphically assisted set-up
Visual confirmation before cutting
A prototype and short-run production shop whose operators had no prior CNC experience reduced setup and running time by 20 percent using a machine with SINUMERIK.
Medium-sized machine tools manufacturer Knuth has fitted a cycle turning machine with Sinumerik 808D. The machine is impressive for its across-the-board precision, productivity, and price.
Major Tool & Machine (MTM) is a large job shop, producing precision milled and turned hardware throughout the company’s 500,000 square foot Indiana facility. Performance is essential, because MTM contracts with aerospace, energy, nuclear and defense companies on many mission-critical, one-off projects.
A recent survey of job shops revealed that in the coming months, many owners and managers intend to evaluate new machine tool investment options. A top consideration will be easier-to-use CNC.
The SINUMERIK 828D provides machine tool manufacturers with a tailored solution that enables them to market their globally-usable machines with a single CNC system. The Sinumerik 828D fulfills a major prerequisite for a ‘Global CNC’: the combination of all the required operating and programming functions in a single control system.
Orange County Choppers, Inc.® (OCC), has built a reputation for advanced metal cutting. An appeal of the American Chopper television series is the shop's creative edge, as exemplified by OCC's popular water jet cutting machine. Less known is the fact that the "water jet" often featured on the show is a Flow machine controlled by a Siemens SINUMERIK 840D CNC.
Major Tool is an aircraft and aerospace parts producer in the Indianapolis area. They made a decision to retrofit most of their primary machine tools with Siemens CNC and the results are discussed by key personnel at the company.
David McGee, Vice President of Manufacturing at Republic-Lagun, says many of the performance advantages of the new VMC 3016 grew out of a Siemens technology platform that now includes the SINUMERIK 828D CNC. The company's entire VMC line features Siemens controls, and the new VMC 3016 was built around Siemens new 828D.
