Allows all Siemens CNC community members to interact with a product expert and get answers to programming and operations questions on-demand

Siemens recently introduced the Virtual Product Expert (VPE), a new support program for its CNC machine tool users, machine builders, dealers and importers.  Through the VPE program, customers can now interact directly with a SINUMERIK CNC product expert and have their specific operation and programming questions answered — from the basic functions of the control to the most advanced machining technology aspects of the hardware and software suites.  Best of all, this service is offered to all Siemens CNC community members at no cost. 

Machine tool customers can contact Siemens to arrange an online session, tailored to their specific needs, regardless of where the programmer, operator or the machine are located.  Sessions are typically one-hour in length and are being scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. 

John Meyer, the Marketing Communications Manager for the Siemens Machine Tool Business, notes,

“With the rapid advancement in our SINUMERIK CNC technology on both the automation hardware and software sides, we see our Virtual Product Expert program as a vital part of our support offering.  We know it will benefit our machine tool users, who are looking for immediate answers to their operation and programming challenges in order to keep their production running.  It’s like having a Siemens CNC expert in your back pocket.”

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
