The SINAMICS S120 Combi offers tried-and-tested SINAMICS functionality with an integrated drive concept specifically matched to compact turning and milling machines. With a multitude of technical highlights, SINAMICS S120 Combi combines regenerative power, as well as 3 or 4 motor modules for spindle and feed motors in one power module. In addition, it features a connection terminal for a TTL encoder, facilitating the spindle encoder’s direct and cost-efficient connection without additional hardware.
Designed for industrial, high-performance applications in mechanical and system engineering, the SINAMICS S120 CNC servo drive offers powerful single and coordinated drives (multiple-axis applications) supporting vector or servo functions. Covering the 0.16 – 6,000 HP (0.12 - 4,500 kW) performance range and offering a broad range of cooling concepts, SINAMICS S120 features numerous harmonized components and functions, and unprecedented flexibility to design optimal solutions. The system’s modular design makes it possible to configure drive systems with a virtually unlimited number of axes or main spindles. The power modules are dependent on the size of the motors and the infeed module is determined by the required DC link rating.
SIMOTICS 1FK7 synchronous servomotors are 25 percent smaller than previous 1FK models - even more ideal for CNC servo motor applications. With high torques of up to 108 Newton meters and a particularly favorable torque-inertia ratio, this motor achieves a very high dynamic response resulting in decreased machine down-time. The rugged, maintenance-free 1FK7 motor design ensures high operational reliability and is universally suitable for all mechanical engineering applications, particularly robots and handling tasks.
The 1FT7 motors are permanent magnet synchronous motors with very compact dimensions and a visually attractive design. Their tried and tested cross profile enables these motors to be quickly and easily installed. 1FT7 motors meet the highest demands with respect to dynamics, speed setting range, as well as field weakening, true running, and positional accuracy. They are equipped with state-of-the-art encoder technology and are optimized for use in our fully digital drive and control systems.
Siemens 1PH8 synchronous servomotors excel in demanding, high-power applications. Their high-power density allows a small footprint and supplies high torque at medium rotor inertia. The synchronous servo design generates 30 to 40 percent more torque and power than the already compact 1PH8 induction version, which is about 30% smaller than standard NEMA or IEC induction motors. The servo design of the 1PH8 has the same outer dimensions as the induction design allowing simple future upgrades.
Widely used, asynchronous induction motors are a preferred choice for industrial applications due to their rugged construction, absence of brushes, and the ability to accurately control motor speed. Compact, with high-power density, The Siemens 1PH8 CNC spindle motor is almost maintenance-free and features an optional integrated, high-resolution measuring system for high-end speed and position control. Used in conjunction with SINAMICS S120 drives, these motors approach servo quality.

Fryer Machine Systems is a U.S. machine tool builder that has for many years marketed to the performance needs of both aerospace and job shop customers alike. The company now features a customized SINUMERIK 840D CNC platform on its machines. Down the road, Fryer anticipates migrating to a customized 828D CNC platform, to provide next-generation HMI for customers. Larry Fryer, President and Founder of the company, says he saw the new 828D CNC at EMO last fall and was struck by the control's unique HMI.
Romi Machine Tools, Ltd. was the first machine tool builder to integrate the new Siemens Sinumerik 828D control in the United States. Jody Michaels, Application and Engineering Manager for Romi, says he has been looking for a CNC edge to evolve the company's brand identity in the U.S. and the Siemens SINUMERIK 828D CNC fits the bill. According to Michaels, the new mid-range control brings a unique, dual capability to Romi's new D800AP vertical milling center.
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.
Paul Custer, National Sales Manager for importer YMT, Inc., says the new Quaser MF400 milling machine, powered by the new Siemens SINUMERIK 828D CNC, makes four-axis-plus-one milling affordable in the mid market range.
