During the retrofit, the existing Sinumerik PCU50 and MMC103 hardware and software components are removed and replaced with a Simatic IPC 427D industrial PC with Windows 10 and up-to-date HMI Advanced (human-machine interface) operating software. Before the retrofit, the machine tool is analyzed on the customer's premises. Next, equipment parameters and applications are tested in the laboratory with the new components.
After successful testing, retrofit experts then put the solution into operation on the customer's side. After a short retrofitting time, the equipment is ready again for immediate productive use.
