An overview of Siemens Industry, Inc. Drive Technologies — Motion Control (Machine Tool) and its organization, products, services and capabilities.
From the job shop to the retrofit operation, moldmakers to mass production departments at the world’s leading automotive, aerospace and medical part manufacturers, Siemens continues to push the envelope on CNC technology.
With the recent introduction of the SINUMERIK 808D, we took a bold step into the job shop world, as this basic CNC brings the power, flexibility and reliable performance of Siemens technology to the job shop.
Already accepted as an OEM component by numerous mill and lathe builders, the 808D provides job shops the unique opportunity to apply advanced and unmatched CNC power to their existing machines, breathing “new life into old iron,” as the saying goes.
The 808D rounds out the growing family of CNC models from Siemens, which now spans the range from the most basic three-axis machines to most advanced five-axis machining centers, with full robotic integration, secondary operations management and transfer line capability, all on a single control, the 840D sl, still the benchmark by which all other CNC technology in the market is judged.
Simply put, nobody matches the muscle of Siemens.
But product is not the only area where Siemens has expanded its offerings to the North American market. While our CNC system now incorporates multiple products and scalable customized solutions, parts, training and services for the entire machine tool industry through our global presence, we also offer the market highly trained CNC engineers, application specialists, training and service personnel — plus a network of retrofit solution partners.
