Updates for Sinumerik 828D and 840D sl controls to optimize milling processes

Siemens is upgrading its proven Sinumerik 828D and 840D sI machine tool controls.

The Sinumerik 828D hardware is exceptionally robust. Its performance has been specifically tailored to the needs of the mid-range machine segment and to the work typically carried out in small and medium-sized machine shops. The facility for remote access to connected PCs enables the user to pull the PC display over to the panel and so remotely access any data and programs stored there. Working at the panel, the accessed data can be rapidly exchanged in the network over the high-speed 1-GB-Ethernet connections. Using the multi-touch Smart Operation panel in conjunction with the new side screen, displays and active elements can be simply shown on screen, and modules are available from a preconfigured library to enable determination of the machine status. The side screen navigation allows additional windows to be opened or closed on the right or left of the main monitor. Particular benefits of the new touch sensor are its outstanding resistance to electromagnetic interference and its ability to recognize and ignore contact by the ball of the thumb, so preventing unintentional operation.
The new Display Manager for Sinumerik 840D sI allows individual operating concepts with significantly extended functionality to be implemented with minimum effort by the machine operator. The monitor surface can be divided into a number of display areas and the arrangement of their contents individually configured. Each different display area can be provided with its own menu, which can be populated with any optional touch buttons. Another feature of the Sinumerik Operate Display Manager is the familiar multi-finger control we all use on our smartphones and tablets – enabling faster, more intuitive working. This makes it ideal for use on large displays with multi-touch capability like the 22 inch Sinumerik blackline plus panel.
