Sinumerik One is an advanced CNC control system for highly productive machine tools combining hardware innovation with a “digital twin”  that allows users to to take advantage of digital transformation for machinery design and the machining of products.

“This selection by a major industry control manufacturer… validates years of Racer providing quality machinery, rich in technological developments, to the market,” said Alex Vojinovich, C.O.O. of RACER Machinery.

RACER will be implementing the control on all its platforms.

“The ability to be the leader in North America in using the Sinumerik One to develop machine tool applications as well as offer our customers the unique ability that the control provides will place RACER in many opportunities.”

Siemens says the control provides significant advantages for both the machine manufacturers and the end-customer. The control offers secure production planning for the machine user and can be used as the basis for new business models such as seamless engineering with the Digital Twin, essentially a virtual version on the machine that you can program and prove-out work while its machining other products.

“The use of digital twins for scalable job preparation, production optimization, promotion and training all enhance the customer’s overall productivity,” said Vojinovich.
