March 17, 2020 - Siemens is offering the Sinumerik MC controller, a universal, open, industrial PC-based CNC system. Its motion control, automation and integrated Windows 10 operating system make it a control for fabrication and specialty machines, including woodworking, stone-cutting, laser and conventional basic grinding machines. With an open operating concept, this control system is also suitable for certain additive manufacturing, metal-forming, adhesive applications, plate-cutting, grinding and laser or waterjet cutting.
The Windows 10 operating system provides integration of customized software for these machines. The open operating concept and the extensive range of interfaces make it a universal, open control, which can be utilized in existing fabrication machine solutions. Sinumerik Motion Control (MC) is optimally equipped with the latest generation of the proven Sinumerik numerical control (NC) kernel to meet the demands of the fabrication industry.
Sinumerik MC offers Safety Integrated as the Siemens industry standard for safety and implements the multi-layer Defense-in-Depth-Concept for IT-Security.
Sinumerik MC can be engineered in the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal, which provides an engineering environment. This opens up engineering opportunities for machine builders. Conventional PLC languages and high-level language programming are available in the TIA Portal to create automation programs for the control system. This is assisted by commissioning offered by Sinumerik Operate, the graphical user interface of the Siemens CNC system.
