Family of CNC Models Streamlines Setup of Automated Cells

Siemens introduces its family of Sinumerik 828 CNC units.

Siemens introduces its family of Sinumerik 828 CNC units. They are designed as a solution for connecting robots to machine tools for automated production cell setup. The Sinumerik Integrate Run MyRobot/EasyConnect interface performs handling tasks, enabling different types of robots designed by different manufacturers to be connected to CNC machines. The interface enables companies to set up automated cells, including serial machines, with different types of CNCs using the same standard interface.

Using the new interface, operators can synchronize processes between the machine tool and robots, thereby positioning efficient processes in the automated production cell. Machine operators can simultaneously access the factory network and inspect contract documents at the user interface. The concept also includes an application for prep work on the PC, including the creation of part programs.

Sinumerik Integrate Access MyMachine provides functionality for remote diagnostics using a corporate network or internet access. The basic Access MyMachine/P2P application facilitates the exchange of data with connected machines from a Windows PC. Machine tool operators can access the machine over the internet or outside the company network. Sinumerik Integrate Access MyMachine/Ethernet (ASP) provides an overview of the machine history in addition to machine access. The Sinumerik CNC enables the uploading and downloading of machine data, files, trip recorders and configurable PLC traces. Text message (SMS) or email notifications in cases of unusual machine conditions are also possible. ASP enables monitoring of fault states, and comprehensive integration of in-house service and maintenance processes.
