Siemens SINUMERIK 808D Advanced designed for basic machine tools.
Siemens released its new Sinumerik 808D Advanced CNC, designed for basic milling and turning machines. It offers up to five axes / spindle motion control on a single machine channel, with drive bus communication between the CNC and drive for better position control, data transfer over standard Ethernet protocol, plus Auto Servo Tuning (AST).
These also include incremental an encoder with 2,500 parts per revolution (ppr) or an absolute encoder with 20-bit resolution. Motor speeds up to 4,000 rpm are offered with Safe Torque Off (STO) and IP65 enclosure protection. Vertical and horizontal configurations of the Sinumerik 808D are available to suit all standard control panels.
Additional features of the Sinumerik 808D Advanced CNC include an RJ45 Ethernet port; 7.5-inch LCD color display with 640 x 480 resolution; machine technology-specific keyboards with hard keys shielded with protective membrane; an enclosure with no fan or hard disk; power with no battery; continuous data buffering with NV-RAM; LED tool number display and a master control panel with rotary switch for feed and spindle override. The rated torque is 1.9-40 Nm with drive line input of 400V and overload rating of 300 percent.
