The ability to combine multiple machining tasks into a single machine rather than performing multiple tasks on various machines certainly presents the opportunity for improved manufacturing efficiency.  Siemens provides the answer for this opportunity with the SINUMERIK CNC’s Multitasking capability.  For example, turning on a Milling machine or milling on a Turning machine can easily be realized with the unified look and feel of the SINUMERIK Operate HMI which is standardized across SINUMERIK CNC platforms.
