SINUMERIK for Aerospace: High speed, high precision manufacturing with innovative CNC technology


Faster – higher – further: The requirements placed on aircraft - and thus on the relevant manufasturing processes applied – are continuously increasing. It is good to see that aircraft and aircraft engine manufacturers can relay on a partner such as Siemens who, as a single source supplier, is able to meet all requirements placed on the state-of-the-art Aerospace automation technology. With SINUMERIK, you can count on excellent know-how in all the relevant Aerospace CNC technologies. Our cooperation with, among others, machine manufacturers and CAD/CAM resp. tool process monitoring system providers ensures utmost compatibility - and enables you to get quickly from the programming to the first workpiece.

Typical fields of application

With the CNC SINUMERIK, Siemens offers manufacturing solutions for all the requirements placed in the Aerospace industry:

  • Aerostructures:
    The increased demand for higher process reliability, higher productivity and even more progress has far reaching consequences for the manufacture of structural components.

  • Engine components:
    High-end grinding, milling and turning are established methods which are used to efficiently manufacture turbines.

  • Composites:
    Today, composite materials are in most cases still designed manually. There is a growing tendency to speed up the processes used by applying automation solutions.

  • Assembly:
    The assembly of aircraft components requires utmost precision and superior quality in all process steps. Of course, this also applies to the assembly of subcomponents. All steps must be completely reproducible.
