Siemens, Sinumerik One, the first digital native CNC.

Digital-Native Machine Tool Control

March 10, 2022
With seamless interaction between virtual and real worlds, the controller works with software to create a machine controller and associated digital twin from a single engineering system.

SIEMENS is promoting “digital transformation” with Sinumerik One, the first digital native CNC. The new controller works with software to create the machine controller and the associated digital twin from one engineering system and thus contributes to seamless integration of hardware and software. Thanks to its seamless interaction between the virtual and the real world, including high-performance hardware, Sinumerik One is setting new standards forCN productivity, performance, and digitalization.

With Sinumerik One, machine tool builders can virtually map their entire development processes — significantly reducing the product development phase and time-to-market for new machines. The virtual preparation of machine commissioning can also reduce the duration of actual commissioning considerably.

The virtual model of the machine opens new possibilities for builders and users alike. Machine concepts and functions can be discussed and planned even before real hardware is available. Realistic simulation provided by Sinumerik One enables CNC machine users to simulate the programming of workpieces and the setup and operation of machine tools completely on the PC. Even training can be carried out using the digital twin instead of training on the actual machine.

The innovations in software and in hardware of Sinumerik One, including the possibility of creating a universal digital twin for product and production, significantly reduces machining time. The CNC system with integrated Simatic S7-1500F PLC is available in both a control cabinet-based and panel-based version. Sinumerik One perfectly fits into the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal and makes a highly efficient engineering framework available for machine tool builders. With Safety Integrated, the new Sinumerik One supports the consistent Siemens industry standard for safety. With IT security integrated in the CNC by design, Sinumerik One implements the multi-layer Defense-in-Depth-Concept.

With Create MyVirtual Machine and Run MyVirtual Machine, the new CNC comes with software to create the machine controller and its digital twin from one engineering system. As a result, the universal digital concept of the digital twin, powerful hardware and integrated IT security make Sinumerik One a forward-looking CNC, which is driving digital transformation in the machine tool industry.
