Machine image in the offline programming software
Several machine OEMs support their customers with specifically adapted configuration files that they provide. These represent a 1:1 image of the machining center, and include all of the cycles integrated by Siemens and the machine OEM. This simplifies programming and allows perfect results to be quickly obtained. An original CNC kernel means that 3D simulation allows NC programs to be verified almost 100% offline.
If there are no configuration files, the workbench provides a function with which the machine tool commissioning archive can be read in.
