Sept. 27, 2011
The Sinumerik 840D sl CNC system platform offers a comprehensive range of functions for machine tools.

Siemen's Sinumerik 840D management system ensures simple handling of all turning and milling tools, as well as hybrid multi-tools in a single standardized user interface. The device comes with touchscreen operation. It includes a power control unit (PCU) 50.5 that allows high-speed key actuation at the large 19-inch glass front. Another feature of the OP 019 design is the wide LEDs, which allows the operator to visualize every key actuation, no matter what the angle of vision, and an integrated key lock helps safeguard against operating errors. The new operator panel is able to provide a basic machine display with three or four channels showing up to 13 axes.
