For customers interested in learning more about the Siemens Sinumerik 840D Application here is an excerpt of the catalog from Siemens.
SINUMERIK® 840D sl provides an open, flexible and powerful CNC system with the SINAMICS S120 design for up to 93 axes. With characteristics that describe it as decentralized, scalable, open, inter-connectable and with a wide range of functionality, the SINUMERIK 840D sl is suitable for use in almost every machining technology and it sets
the standard in dynamics, precision and network integration. The SINUMERIK 840D sl offers you uniformity in its programming, operation and machining cycles. With its efficiency in programming, installation and commissioning, this CNC system platform is characterized by its optimum design, innovative NC functionality, communication
and openness. The SINUMERIK 840D sl, available in several performance variants, can be perfectly customized to the practically every machine and machining technology in the manufacturing industry.
Once again, the SINUMERIK 840D sl proves its innovative power with new, high-performance milling and turning functions, the shortest-possible machining times coupled with excellent surface finish and an ideal integration of
the turn-milling and mill-turning applications. It is the premium CNC system for multitasking machines. Several performance variants provide even more flexibility and openness so that you can configure your machine as needed. The modern SINUMERIK Operate graphical user interface permits simple and efficient operation on multi-channel
machines and programSYNC allows multi-channel machining operations to be synchronized easily and efficiently. Through the use of simulation, the SINUMERIK 840D sl
makes visualization of multichannel machining easy. For example, handling modules or tool changes can be controlled, programmed and visualized in another channel.
This provides even more flexibility and economics throughout the manufacturing process.
The SINUMERIK 840D sl system platform provides comprehensive machine tool capabilities and innovative functionality for every machining technology. The CNC can be
deployed around the world in a variety of machining applications, such as milling, turning, drilling, grinding, laser-cutting, nibbling, stamping, as well as in multi-tasking machines, namely, mill-turning and turn-milling. The SINUMERIK 840D sl is the ideal CNC for tool- and moldmaking, high-speed-cutting applications, wood and glass processing, composite machining, medical part and power generation manufacturing, and not to mention the handling in transfer lines, rotary indexing machines and shop floor manufacturing.
