March 3, 2014

Siemens Industry Inc. has introduced the Sinumerik 808D Advanced CNC, designed for basic milling and turning machines. It offers up to 5 axes/spindle motion control on a single machine channel, with drive bus communication between the CNC and drive to help improve position control, data transfer over standard Ethernet protocol, and auto servo tuning for improved surface quality and repeatable part accuracy in mold and die applications.

Motor speeds up to 4,000 RPM are offered with safe torque off and IP65 enclosure protection. Vertical and horizontal configurations are available to suit all standard control panels.

The T model is suitable for basic turning machines or turning centers without a Y axis, with the option of driven tools, while the M model offers advanced surface finish and the Sinamics V70 drive platform.
