Siemens SINUMERIK 828D is the New CNC

September 9, 2009

As we were finally able to reveal on the show yesterday, Siemens has admitted that their new SINUMERIK 828D CNC is behind the radical job shop productivity improvements that have dominated our news for the past several months.

See the CNC EyeTeam web site for all the details.

This is an important moment in CNC history. Siemens has reapproached CNC with the specific intent of supporting job shops and increasing job shop productivity. They have taken the complexity out of traditional, g-code heavy CNC and added new levels of functionality geared towards the needs of job shop owners and machine operators.

Thanks to the courageous efforts of Dark Cover and others, RELIC’s efforts to suppress this technology were thwarted. No longer are job shops at the mercy of complex, unnecessary, and often outdated CNC technology; now they can finally crack the g-code.

Come to EMO in Milan to see the new SINUMERIK 828D from Siemens, and you too will agree that seeing is believing.

Seeing is Believing: Shop-wide Performance Advantages

August 31, 2009


As I’ve mentioned before, you will be able to see, and believe, for yourselves at EMO in Milan in October. But I am continuing to discuss the benefits of the new CNC that will be announced. I can’t mention much more, but in addition to the machine performance enhancements mentioned in the last post, the CNC enables shop-wide improvements that can radically enhance productivity and increase profits.

  • Automatically maintains interpolation accuracy in kinematic transformations, eliminating need for outside calculations
  • Enables machine-to-machine communication across a shop-wide network
  • Production status alerts can be sent via cell phone text message
  • Video-like GUI transcends mere “graphical” programming and makes it exponentially easier to use
  • New programming efficiencies make functions and commands easier to learn and quicker to execute

Seeing is Believing: Enhanced Machine Performance

August 26, 2009

The ultimate truth will be revealed at EMO in October when you will be able to see the new CNC and can truly believe in its benefits for machine performance.

Here is what you will be able to see:

  • 80 bit Nano Floating Point accuracy, bringing unequaled contouring control and precision
  • Simplified on-screen tool management
  • Advanced surfacing algorithm significantly reduces machining time
  • Simplified commands and functions
  • Residual material diction reduces machining time for steep contours

Next post we will discuss the shop-wide performance benefits.

True Job Shop CNC

August 17, 2009

 I can honestly say that seeing truly is believing. Joe and I have had an amazing experience and now we know the truth behind the mystery. I have promised not to say much yet but here is what I can tell you about this new CNC:

  • True job shop programming
  • Amazing new features that enhance machine performance
  • Revolutionary capabilities that improve performance for the entire shop

We are Safe

August 12, 2009

We have been rescued and are safe. Joe and I are healthy and are in the hands of friends. I can’t say more at this point. We are about to solve the mystery of the super CNC.
