Sinumerik 840D
Controls

The Sinumerik 840D is capable of handling all complex grinding tasks and profiles. This control package can interpolate up to 5 axes.

This enables the machine to precisely create cone shapes, spherical shapes and threedimensional curves. There are no limits when creating wheel profiles. The 840D is capable of safely controlling large and complex grinding centers with a multitude of axes and several spindles. The user interface is designed very user friendly. ELB has created proven grinding cycles for easy parameter input via graphically structured templates.

An additional advantage of this controls package is the optional Cadnology software. Cadnology converts even extremely complex profiles directly from a CAD-file into contour data for the machine.

Of course the multitude of controlsspecific features, e.g. plain text display, language toggle, fast internal communication via Profibus, interfaces to peripheral equipment and data recorders or remote service, are also available on all ELB grinding machines.

Benefit Overview

  • Interpolation of up to 5 axes
  • For complex grinding centers
  • Tested pre-defined cycles for almost all grinding tasks
  • Parameter input in programs
  • Comfortable ELB HMI
