SINUMERIK ONE CNC Accelerate Path to Digital Twin and Machine Tool Optimization

At AUTOMATE, Siemens expanded its offering on the popular SINUMERIK ONE "digital native" CNC. This new control generation from Siemens is now offered with innovations in software and hardware to be presented at the show, 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.

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 with increased performance and 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.
