With the SINUMERIK 828D you get a CNC system that is customized for the application in lathes and milling machines. CNC, PLC, user interface and axis control for six CNC measuring circuits are all combined within a single compact unit. The control provides comprehensive CNC functions such as support of sub-spindle machining and powerful tool management capability.

The SINUMERIK 828D offers comprehensive turning capabilities for lathes, plus drilling and milling operations for face machining and peripheral surface machining of workpieces. The performance of the controller and the new motion control allow you to achieve mirror finish surfaces with minimum machining time. The SINUMERIK 828D has eliminated all unnecessary functionalities; this is particularly noticeable in the graphical user interface. This means it is optimally suitable for use in the workshop. Operation, programming and maintenance can quickly be mastered with only minimal training requirements.

Optimum operator guidance via CNC input screens with animated input masks

USB, CF, and Ethernet interfaces are located on the front panel for quick and easy data transfers

Integrated wireless modem for optimum process monitoring via mobile phone

The SINUMERIK 828D is perfectly suited for equipping horizontal and vertical turning centers with one machining channel and up to eight CNC measuring circuits. Apart from the main spindle and the geometry axes (X axis and Z axis), other machine units can be operated as well:

CNC controlled turret

Tailstock axis (with travel to fixed stop)

Driven tools and C axis mode for end face and peripheral surface machining

Y axis (orthogonal or oblique)

Sub-spindle with synchronous spindle function for complete machining of workpieces

Easier and faster from the drawing to the finished part

Machine tool technology is evolving at a dynamic pace. NC programs that once could only be created on CAM systems, can now be programmed directly at the CNC machine. Today, there is a special, productive programming method available for every area of application. The SIEMENS ShopTurn was developed specifically to fulfill the programming requirements of workshops. It allows fast and application-specific programming of all work steps for the production of single parts or small-scale series. Together with its new SINUMERIK Operate user interface, this control ensures intuitive, effective processes even in full-scale production. The concept of this solution is to create a workplan instead of spending a lot of time with tedious programming. By creating a workplan with a straightforward skill-specific sequence of actions, ShopTurn users can establish the NC program directly from the drawing. The logical structure of the workplan makes it very easy to program modifications and design variations for a workpiece.. And with the ShopTurn’s integrated, powerful motion path generation, even the most complex contours and workpieces can be produced with ease. Advantages: Easier and faster from the drawing to the finished part - with ShopTurn!
