IMTS 2012: The Sinumerik 828D Basix T (turning) and Basic M (milling) by Siemens are designed to enhance job shop performance. Courtesy: SiemensThe Sinumerik 828D Basic T is designed to address the needs of shopfloor turning machines. It combines CNC, PLC, operator panel and axis control for five axes/spindles, including live tooling. Milling and drilling operations on a turning machine, both for face and peripheral surfacing, are therefore possible. In tandem with the Sinamics S120 Combi drives package, the 828D Basic T represents has a high level of efficiency and virtually maintenance-free operation since the fans, hard disks, and batteries of past CNC generations are eliminated. 

Likewise, the new Sinumerik 828D Basic M class features the same performance as the T class, but is used on milling machines. Even in complex moldmaking operations, mirror-smooth surfacing and reduced machining times are enabled. Again, in tandem with Sinamics S120 Combi drives package and Simotics feed and spindle motors, the 828D BASIC T will operate a milling machine at the highest level of performance possible.

All the other benefits of the Siemens CNC family, including the Sinumerik Operate graphical user interface platform as well as ShopMill and ShopTurn easy programming are offered in these new 828D CNCs. 

The Sinumerik 828D is capable of full graphical, high-level language command and supports ISO programming. This control family is ideal for single-part and small-batch production. Programming time can be further reduced for small-batch production with the use of the ShopMill and ShopTurn graphical workstep programming system. High-level language programming can be used in conjunction with programGuide to significantly reduce programming times for large-scale serial production.
