Accelerated Path to the Digital Twin

With 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.

"Siemens offers today's machine tool builders and manufacturers the most advanced CNC technology on the market," said a Siemens spokesperson. "From controls that run the most basic milling and turning machines to multi-axis, hybrid machines with full automation and robotics, CNCs from Siemens can handle the complete range of motion control requirements, putting machine tool building and factory floor use on the fast track to the digital twin and machining optimization."

Siemens has expanded its offering on the SINUMERIK ONE "digital native" CNC. This new control generation from Siemens is offered with innovations in software and hardware, with the goal of enabling machine builders and end-users a full digital twin of the machine tool and machining sequences. With the new system software SINUMERIK V6.20, there are new technology functions in SINUMERIK ONE that simplify operation, reduce machine wear and increase productivity. "With these developments, Siemens is demonstrating how the powerful SINUMERIK ONE machine tool control system can be optimally used for digital transformation in a highly productive, flexible and modular way," said the spokesperson.

In the area of hardware, there are additional new innovations for the SINUMERIK ONE that are designed to simplify operation. The new keyboards and Machine Control Panels (MCPs) are now available from 15 to 24 inches to match the design of the HMI panel, and the SIMATIC Industrial Thin Clients (ITCs) and industrial PCs with a full HD resolution up to 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The new CNCs are also integrated in the digital twin of SINUMERIK ONE (Run MyVirtual Machine), so that the appearance and operation correspond to the real control in every respect. In addition, the digital twin has been equipped with new features that simplify engineering and work preparation. Examples of the many innovations include a 3D option that offers support for a second channel, often used for robotic integration.
