An industrial computer and monitor for a CNC workshop
CNC machines are complex and expensive. The electronics and machine parts all form part of the cost, but even with the best setups there are almost inevitably some areas that need to be customized.
This was the case for our customer who had chosen the Siemens Sinumerik line of controllers for their CNC machines. There were some limitations that they needed to work around and some advantages to be gained from adding an industrial computer and monitor to their systems.
Additional applications included custom software available that could be installed on a multipurpose industrial computer. Other options that could be enabled included remote and centralized monitoring of the entire system.
This case study takes a much closer look at exactly what our customer needed from their proposed upgrades and how we chose the best computer setup to suit their expectations and targets.
