EMO: From Virtual to Real

By Markus Erlmann

It’s all about integration. Imaging you are running a job shop using highly flexible machine tools. You manufacture in small lot sizes and need to adjust your NC programs quite often due to product changes. How do you keep track of all the product changes? And how do you ensure, that the updated NC programs and information about the required tools are transferred from the planning department to the right machine tool on the shop floor?


The joint solution from Siemens PLM Software and Siemens Motion Control Systems now helps you to answer these questions. The solution connects Teamcenter with the Motion Control Information System (MCIS). To be more precise; linking Teamcenter to two MCIS solution components – Direct Numerical Control (DNC) and Tool Data Information (TDI).

Have a look at the official press release and read about Peter Thorne’s (Managing Director, Cambashi Ltd.) assessment of this new solution.

And don’t forget to take a look at the NX CAM – SINUMERIK Advantage which allows you to get a post processor for the SINUMERIK 840D controller for free.
