Probe System - Part Only

Probe System - Part Only

The Renishaw OMP40-2 3D touch-trigger inspection probe is a compact touch probing solution that can be used out-of-the box with the native probing cycles of the SINUMERIK ONE CNC. Using a kinematic mechanism, the OMP40-2 probe is able to achieve a repeatability of 1µm. Optical transmission sends the data to the control without the use of cables. Includes the OMI-2T Optical Receiver.

This option is highly recommended to replace manual edge finders to decrease the amount of time in set-up. The probe may also be integrated into Auto cycles to decrease errors, downtime and scrap.

Probe System - Tool Only

The Renishaw OTS 3D touch-trigger tool setter for automated tool length and diameter measurement can be used out of the box with the native cycles of the SINUMERIK ONE CNC. The kinematic mechanism is capable of achieving a repeatability of 1µm and the use of optical transmission provides a cable-free environment for unrestricted worry-free machine movement. Includes the OMI-2T Optical Receiver.

This option is highly recommended to reduce the amount of time in tool set-up, increase the accuracy of tool table data and enable you to make full use of the powerful tool management capabilities of the SINUMERIK ONE CNC. The OTS Tool setter may also be used within the Auto cycles for in-process tool breakage detection.

Software Options

APO — Auto Power Off

APO — Auto Power Off

Will command the SINUMERIK ONE to shut down power at the end of a program run. This option is great for untended machining so the machine will shut down after the last part is run. Simply press the APO button on the control panel after the run is initiated.

3D Simulation (P25)

3D Simulation (P25)

3D Solid digital twin of your part, faithful in every programmed detail. You can check your program by close inspection of each detail using the touchscreen operation of the 19″ screen of the SINUMERIK ONE.

Advanced Surface Motion Control (S07)

Advanced Surface Motion Control (S07)

Advanced Surface is an advanced algorithm that analyzes look ahead and velocity. The software converts points to splines to create a superior toolpath that is processed smoothly through the SINUMERIK ONE run engine.

Best for high-speed roughing applications, but also great for achieving optimal results for general milling. Highly recommended, and part of the One Dynamics Options Package for Job Shops.

CNC Memory, 5.1 GB (P12 & P77)

CNC Memory, 5.1 GB (P12 & P77)

A combination of Siemens options that, together, adds internal memory to the SINUMERIK ONE to bring in and integrate large files (such as CAD and CAM). Extends the internal CNC memory by 1.8 GB.

DXF Reader (P56)

DXF Reader (P56)

Open DXF files on the SINUMERIK ONE to easily transfer data into your program. Program faster and reduce errors on programming dimensions. Open and use elements of multiple DXF files in the same program. Works within all the programming methods. Easily command specific features from drawing elements. Set your own part reference independent of the drawing origin.

Handwheel Run (M08)

Handwheel Run (M08)

Run the programmed moves by turning the handwheel. You control the feedrate by moving the Manual Pulse Generator on the control panel and the actual programmed path is moved. Adjust the relationship between the handwheel turns and the feedrate with 4 different resolution settings. Seamlessly go between Handwheel Run and fully automatic CNC run. Great for setups and for confidence making that first part!

Measuring Cycles for Drilling/Milling (P28)

Measuring Cycles for Drilling/Milling (P28)

Enables you to use a probe within the Auto Mode operation. Insert a probing canned cycle to measure tool wear for the SINUMERIK ONE to apply compensation. You can also measure part features and apply adjustments to either work offsets or tool compensation. The cycle can be programmed to command the control to re-machine features based on the result of the measurement. The probing cycle may be combined with a series of logic statements to give you even more flexibility.

Execution from External Storage (P75)

Execution from External Storage (P75)

Enables the use of an external memory device for running and editing programs. Allows your memory device to function like an expansion of your internal SINUMERIK ONE memory, without any restrictions on programs, subprograms, commands or even transferring to another machine.

3D Solid model graphics real time while running a program. It is a great way to check the progress of your job, especially when you are running a lot of coolant.

Top Surface - Cycle 832 (S17)

Top Surface - Cycle 832 (S17)

Top Surface is an advanced algorithm that analyzes look ahead and velocity. The software converts points to splines to create a superior toolpath that is processed smoothly through the SINUMERIK ONE run engine.

This software will actually fix problems with the imported CAM data, detecting gaps in the points distribution that will result in jerking or hesitations as the program runs. This option is best for high-speed finishing in mold making where the very best surface quality is required. Part of the One Dynamics Options Package for Surfacing.

You are able to choose the between maximizing Machining Velocity, Surface Quality and Dimensional Accuracy. For example, turning on the “Smoothing” function in Top Surface will greatly increase part surface quality but may possibly slow the machining. This advanced software puts the trade-offs into your hands – where it belongs.

TRACYL/Cylinder Surface Transformation (M27)

TRACYL/Cylinder Surface Transformation (M27)

Wraps a 2D shape around a cylinder, enabling you to program features onto a cylinder using the 4th Axis option of your VMCsi machine.

Access MyMachine OPC UA (P67)

Access MyMachine OPC UA (P67)

The OPC UA (Unified Architecture) standard is particularly suitable for data exchange across different levels as it is independent from specific operating systems, has secure transfer procedures and better semantic description of the data.

OPC UA not only makes data available, but also provides information about the data (e.g. data types). This enables machine-interpretable access to the data.
