The Smart NC Contest, which marked its 6th year, is an event jointly organized by Siemens Korea and Hyundai Wia since 2014 with the aim of enhancing students’ technological capacity and nurturing on-site future technological talents. Siemens Korea and Hyundai Wia are the only companies organizing a NC machine tool contest in Korea.
The Smart NC Contest participants performed tests of programing skills to decide how a machine tool processes materials. Participating students were able to predict the cycle time of how many steps a product would have to go through by using Siemens Sinumerik CNC system’s milling and turning simulation program.
“I’m glad we are able to discover various talents with outstanding technical skills at the Smart NC Contest again this year,” said KwangHee Paik, General Manager of Digital Industry(DI) at SLS. “SLS will continue to support local future talents to enhance their technological creativity and unlimited potentials through the Smart NC Contest by providing in-depth field and on-site training.”
