The Digital Machine Shop — Siemens to present digital-native CNC and more at IMTS 2022, booths 133346 and 433028
Embarking on the digital journey with SINUMERIK ONE reduces product development cost and time-to-market, plus the company will display an expanded hardware, software and service portfolio to help pave the way towards digitalization.
During IMTS 2022, Siemens will present its hardware automation and software technology portfolio, highlighted by the first-ever, digital-native CNC platform, SINUMERIK ONE, for machine tool applications. In addition, Siemens will present its solutions and services for the industrialization of additive manufacturing. In booths 133346 and 433028, the company will highlight how machine users can quickly and easily embark on their digitalization journeys — from part concept to design, digital twin to simulation, part and machine production, as well as total integration of these processes into the digital enterprise for job shops and production departments alike.
In the Controls and CAD-CAM pavilion (East Hall) in booth 133346, Siemens will demonstrate the end-to-end production and installation of a transmission housing and bracket for the eRod, an autonomous electric vehicle that will be in the booth for visitor inspection. The parts are made by additive and subtractive machining processes. At every stage of the part’s development, including machining, display kiosks will take visitors through the digital process.
From the popular Siemens NX CAM design software, which enables the use of 3D models, data and processes to seamlessly connect planning and shopfloor operations on a digital thread to the powerful SINUMERIK ONE, the digital-native CNC that permits a digital twin of the machine and its full operation in production, Siemens has streamlined machine shop operations as well as leading automotive, aerospace, off-highway and medical part production facilities worldwide.
The new SINUMERIK ONE control platform now enables end-to-end capabilities from the design of the part and machine tool through full commissioning, training and production validation on the shop- and factory floor. Digitalization becomes reality
In the Additive pavilion (West Hall) in booth 433028, Siemens will demonstrate its CNC implementation into the additive and additive / subtractive production worlds, displaying part production processes from design to the finished part. Visitors can discuss their manufacturing challenges with Siemens to determine the optimum method of part design and manufacturing, whether one-off or full production runs, all performed with digitalization methods for validation and time / cost containment.
Additional highlights of the Siemens booths will include:
Machine Tool Digitalization solutions that shorten the machine builder’s time-to-market, through Digital Twin technology, where all machine design and operational kinematics are simulated prior to any manufacturing. This development enables substantial savings for the builder and end-user, in the design, build, commissioning, startup and training phases of machine implementation.
Machine tool builders benefit from Digital Twin technology by speeding up development and commissioning times to new levels of quality and efficiency
With SINUMERIK ONE, the first-ever, digital-native CNC, Siemens is driving forward digital transformation in the machine tool industry. The new controller works with software to create the machine controller and the associated Digital Twin from a single engineering system and thus contributes to the total integration of hardware and software. Thanks to its seamless interaction between the virtual and real worlds, including high-performance PLC, motor and drive hardware, SINUMERIK ONE is setting new standards in terms of productivity, performance and digitalization. It’s the future-proof machine controller in the increasingly digital world of manufacturing.
Through software enhancements such as Create MyVirtual Machine, Run MyVirtual Machine, Manage MyMachines and others, the full shop- and manufacturing floor can be simulated and managed by Siemens.
With Create MyVirtual Machine for machine tool builders, and Run MyVirtual Machine for machine users, the new CNC platform is provided with software to create the universal concept of the digital twin, powerful hardware and integrated IT security, making SINUMERIK ONE a forward-looking CNC, which is driving digital transformation in the machine tool industry.
