Sinumerik One is core element for Highlight Case with two technologies
At EMO Milano and the Siemens Machine Tool Days, Siemens will demonstrate how to react quickly to trends with the CNC Sinumerik One, which was launched on the market as a digital native in 2019. The focus of the trade fair appearance and the virtual event is a production plant that shows two machines controlled with Sinumerik One, a 5-axis milling center and a robot-based additive manufacturing machine. With these two machines, for example, gears of large gearboxes can be repaired instead of replacing them. Such large gearboxes are used in areas such as wind energy, where they are subject to natural wear due to the enormous frictional forces and therefore have to be replaced at certain time intervals. At EMO Milano and the Siemens Machine Tool Days, Siemens will demonstrate how the gears are initially milled flat in the milling center. A robot is then used to rebuild the teeth in an additive manufacturing process. The final precision grinding takes place at the end again on the 5-axis milling center. The repair instead of new production not only saves material resources, but also about 60 percent of energy. Sinumerik One, the first Digital Native CNC, represents the core element for the digital transformation of the machine tool world. Thanks to the digital twin via Create MyVirtual Machine, both machines could be developed, tested and functionally approved in parallel long before the real machine was put into operation. Machine builders thus get to a better machine faster and machine users faster to the right workpiece.
With the Digital Enterprise portfolio, Siemens supports companies exactly where the current challenges lie: With the help of digital twins, such as Sinumerik One, and the use of future technologies such as artificial intelligence or industrial edge computing, machine builders and users can collect, analyze, understand the data generated and thus use in a meaningful way. This allows them to react quickly and flexibly to challenges and adapt their products and manufacturing processes to new requirements and save resources.
