2. Beacon (turning process)---the navigation mark on your desk

The lighthouse indicates important directions and dangerous areas for people navigating at sea, and is the coordinate of the course. However, in BNW Lüneburg, Germany, the lighthouse allows us to easily enter the world of Sinumerik CNC programming. In the basic CNC turning course, a lighthouse is used as an example workpiece to demonstrate how to use Sinumerik Operate for efficient programming.


3. Berlin TV Tower (CNC process)---small stature, big winner

"Going straight to the sky" is a work piece processed by the trainees of Berlin SPE. Their passion has been rewarded. With this artifact, the trainees won the CNC4you internal competition and received cash prizes or free admission tickets to the German First Division Football League.

4. Coordinate Cube (CNC process) --- precise rotation

"Accurately know the requirements." Finally, it is no longer necessary to spend a lot of effort to determine the coordinate axis and the direction of rotation. The coordinate cube is processed from one piece of material. The coordinate axis can be marked separately or engraved directly on the milling machine. This cube is a very comprehensive example to demonstrate the basic operation of the CYCLE800 rotation cycle.
