Siemens supports the machine tool industry in utilizing the full potential of data for flexible and sustainable action

Under the theme “Digitalization in Machine Tool Manufacturing — Infinite opportunities from infinite data”, Siemens will demonstrate how the full potential of data can be used for increased productivity during this year’s EMO Milano tradeshow, October 4-9, and during the virtual Siemens Machine Tool Days 2021 event.

The challenges are quite large: the Covid-19 pandemic has significantly accelerated the pace of change in manufacturing markets. Added to this are growing demands of individualization and the urgent need for more sustainability — and these can be achieved with the help of digitalization and automation. Siemens brings together the extremely large volumes of data generated in this process during a continuous cycle between the real and digital worlds. This enables the employees of industrial manufacturers to make the appropriate decisions based upon data and respond more quickly to trends and changes.

Sinumerik One
NEW SINUMERIK ONE Machine Control Panels offer machine tool users intuitive operation, increased efficiency and greater flexibility

SINUMERIK ONE is core element of highlight case with two technologies

During EMO in Milan and the Siemens Machine Tool Days virtual event, Siemens will demonstrate how to react quickly to trends with the new SINUMERIK ONE CNC, which was introduced in the North American market as a digital-native control. To demonstrate this, the focus of the real and virtual Siemens booth is a production line that shows two machines controlled with SINUMERIK ONE — a 5-axis milling center and a robotic-based additive manufacturing machine.

With these two machines, for example, the gears of large gearboxes can be repaired instead of replacing them. Such large gearboxes are used in industries such as wind energy, where they are subject to natural wear-and-tear due to the enormous frictional forces and must be replaced at certain time intervals. Siemens will demonstrate how the gears are initially milled flat in the milling center. Next, a robot is used to rebuild the teeth in an additive manufacturing process. And the final precision grinding takes place at the end again on the 5-axis milling center.

Instead of new production, the repair not only saves material resources, but also approximately 60 percent of energy. SINUMERIK ONE, the first digital-native CNC, represents the core element for the digital transformation of the machine tool industry. Thanks to the Digital Twin known as Create MyVirtual Machine, both machines could be developed, tested and functionally approved simultaneously, long before the real machine was put into operation. This gives machine tool builders the advantage by getting to a better machine faster, while machine tool users can get to the right workpiece even faster.

With the Digital Enterprise portfolio, Siemens supports manufacturers exactly where the current challenges lie. With the help of Digital Twins, such as SINUMERIK ONE, the use of future technologies such as artificial intelligence or industrial edge computing, and the Siemens digitalization portfolio, machine builders and machine users can collect, analyze and understand the data generated and use it in a productive way. This allows them to react quickly and flexibly to challenges, adapt their products and manufacturing processes to new requirements and save resources.


The NEW SINUMERIK ONE is the first-ever digital-native CNC for the machine tool industry

Greater flexibility and innovative technology for machine operation

SINUMERIK ONE offers new functions and technology updates that further increase manufacturing performance, flexibility and modularity. Visitors to the Siemens booth during EMO in Milan, as well as the visitors attending the virtual Siemens Machine Tool Days event, will have the opportunity to see new SINUMERIK ONE Machine Control Panels (MCP) in action.

With the new SINUMERIK ONE MCPs, Siemens brings intuitive machine tool operation to CNC users including more comfort, increased efficiency and greater flexibility. The new ergonomic metal design can be integrated into existing operating concepts and fits 19-inch to 24-inch panels. The new MCPs can even be configured individually for customer-specific requirements.

New functionalities make machine operation even easier. Powerride combines the override switch with the NC start button for easy and efficient machine setup. With the integrated LED scale in Powerride, ACTUAL values can now be visualized. With Powerride, the feed is automatically reset after the end of the set, which makes operation effective and easy. In addition, Powerride provides haptic feedback through short vibration as soon as a defined limit value is exceeded. This increases the perception of these values and supports the blind operation of the panel.

The QWERTY keyboard is provided as standard for the MCPs for the 22-inch and 24-inch variants, so users no longer need an additional keyboard. An integrated RGB LED in the QWERTY keyboard enables customizable color concepts for simplified work. The SINUMERIK ONE MCP can be used in harsh industrial environments thanks to its IP65 protection class rating.

Siemens Industrial Edge — extensions for machine tools

With Industrial Edge, Siemens offers a concept in which both machine tool builders and machine users can flexibly use the advantages of data processing using Edge or Cloud computing as required. Siemens is also expanding its Edge computing portfolio for machine tools that will enable real-time analysis of data on-site during production. During EMO and Siemens Machine Tool Days, the scalability of Edge hardware will be presented with new Industrial PCs IPC 127E and IPC 427E hardware variants.

Smart Assist demonstrated on Schuler machine Fabtech

Schuler Shows Smart Forming Technology at Fabtech

Whether mechanical stamping presses or hydraulic composite lines: Digital solutions can improve the productivity of every machine

Sensors in Schuler Machine featured at Fabtech

Predicting potential downtime of a press well in advance and thereby improving its availability and productivity? Sophisticated sensors and actuators in the latest Schuler machines make it possible – whether mechanical transfer presses, hydraulic hot stamping or composite lines, for instance. Visitors of this year’s Fabtech November 11-14 in Chicago will find out more at the Schuler booth D46055.

In Schuler presses, machine components can be monitored for changes, wear, and damage to optimize the maintenance process. For this purpose, regular test runs of the system are performed in which vibration data, torque progressions, and energy consumption, among other things, are measured, stored, and compared. Sensors in the press bed and slide record the acceleration per stroke for example, enabling stampers to monitor the forming processes in detail.

The most recent example is the completely redesigned MC 125 stamping press. Thanks to additional integrated sensors, its condition can be fully monitored at all times. This ensures the productivity of the stamping machine. The functionalities are also available on mobile devices.

Smart Assist demonstrated on Schuler machine Fabtech

However, digital solutions can also help to accelerate the production startup significantly. Schuler’s servo presses come with a software called “Smart Assist” which guides the user through the process step-by-step with the aid of videos and graphics, optimizes the movement curves of the slide and transfer fully automatically, and transfers the data to the overall system. Compared to setting up the system manually, which can take up to eight hours for an expert, the Smart Assist reduces the process to just 30 minutes.

Track & Trace with pinpoint accuracy
Compared to cold forming, significantly more factors influence the production process in hot stamping, which is usually done with hydraulic presses. Here, Schuler’s process monitoring solution records the exact temperature of the red-hot blanks as they leave the furnace, the amount of time that passes before they are placed in the die, the press force applied, and many other things. All of these parameters have a direct effect on the part quality. In case there is any doubt, stampers can track and trace these parts with pinpoint accuracy.

When it comes to composite presses and the production of parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), it is all about manufacturing costs. Within the research project “iComposite 4.0,” Schuler and its partners have succeeded in reducing both costs and throughput times for a prototype part dramatically. The production line runs Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) of RWTH Aachen University in Germany.

GMTA Hard Scudding

GMTA Presents Profilator and its “Micro-Finishing” Technology at Motion + Power Technology Expo

GMTA Hard Scudding Micro-FinishingWith over 300 exhibiting companies, the Motion+ Power Technology Expo is the ideal show for gear, electric and fluid power industries. Taking place between October 15 and 17, GMTA is one of the exhibitors at the Cabo Center in Detroit, Michigan.

GMTA will feature its Profilator line of gear pointing, rounding, cutting, Scudding®, Hard Scudding®, deburring and polygon machine tools for North America. The highly modular machines are used for polygon and slot facing, shifter stop machining, chamfering and deburring of highly complex automotive and other powertrain gears. The “Scudding®” and the “Hard Scudding®” process sets the Profilator apart in the market because of its manufacturing efficiency. “Hard Scudding®” allows the machining of green and hardened gears on the same machine, using the same programs. Furthermore, it is a superior technology to skiving, the previous technology used in the gear industry.

GMTA Hard Scudding Micro-FinishingWhile Profilator GmbH & Co. KG introduced the concept of “Hard Scudding®” in 2015, it expanded scudding technology with “Micro-Finishing.” “Micro-Finishing” takes place after the Hard Scudding® process has been completed. The process takes a high quality “Hard Scudding®” part and improves its surface quality. Additionally, this is a completely “dry” machining process and requires no cutting fluids or MQL technology. The total cycle time for finishing a ring gear via Hard Scudding® and “Micro-Finishing” is approximately 64 seconds but the cycle time could be decreased by 10%, keeping it under one minute for all automotive gear rings.

GMTA Hard Scudding Profilator Micro-Finishing Machine “Micro-Finishing” technology is aimed at making at quieter gear and the superfinishing process reduces friction, increases pitting resistance and the life of gears. This process uses a high quality diamond plated tool, designed to remove only a small amount of part material. The resulting part greatly increases surface quality on the gear teeth.

Guill Shines at Interwire

Guill Booth at Interwire 2019

Interwire, the largest and longest-running wire and cable show, took place between May 13 and May 16, at the World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.  Guill Tooling & Engineering  had quite a turnout at their booth.  Company personnel were able share their knowledge and interact with many potential customers.

At booth #1511, Guill was showcasing some of its latest technology. Featured were the in-line 5 layer extrusion crosshead of Series 800, single-point concentricity extrusion crosshead and Bullet II extrusion head.

Guill’s 800 Series is designed to produce the highest quality, highest material-efficient OD tubing for automotive, medical, appliance and industrial applications. This series produces smooth extrusion and layer definition of fluropolymer and other materials for all multi-layer, multi-lumen medical tubing, as well as fuel line constructions, multi-layer PEX pipe and drip irrigation applications.

The single-point concentricity crosshead uses micro-fine adjustment screws for precise concentricity. This adjustment is a unique feature of the company for the extrusion of thin-walled jacketing and precision ID/OD tubing.  It not only accepts both vaccum and micro-air accessories, but is also ideal for pressure and sleeving applications.

Introduced in 2015, the Bullet was a new extrusion head with fixed center design, multi-port spiral flow design and gum space adjustment. There was no need for fastening hardware, so cleaning and restart were easier. The Bullet II allows quick tooling changes, as the tips remove from the back and the die removes from the front. Guill’s CAM LOCK® deflector removes and installs the deflector and tip with just half a turn. Hassle free air and vacuum connections are available, in addition to reduced downtime and lowered operating costs.  High-volume and low-volume applications are suitable for this crosshead.

Even a fraction of the market share could be huge.” He added that if Guill is serious about doing business in China, they must attend this show every year.

Tom Baldock, Sales Representative Manager, was pleased to have met with some potential Chinese customers that have Guill heads and would like to work directly with Guill as opposed to working through the OEM’s. Baldock said that “there are Chinese companies that want American technology, which is still perceived by many as the best technology available.”

Guill had an interpreter at the booth which enabled them to meet with a number of customers, large and small, in person at the show. This, according to Christofaro, “was great for both parties.” Christofaro also noted that “there are a lot of companies (many Chinese) with very impressive extrusion lines that were making product right there at the show.”

Guill products featured at Chinaplas were mainly medical tubing dies. Also shown was a customer sample of a transitional wound drain tubing. Attendees were impressed by the fact that it can be created using a continuous process. Guill had inquiries about their 5 and 6 layer automotive tubing. Booth panels showed that Guill also makes dies for products in other industries, such as wire & cable, hoses, corrugated tube, pipe, etc.
