EMAG L.L.C. is the U.S. subsidiary of a major German machine tool builder that specializes in machine tools for the production of automotive, off-highway, agricultural, and oil field components. The company’s equipment ranges from basic round part turning centers to large-workpiece, five-axis machining centers; gear hobbing machines; and alternative equipment such as laser welding and electrochemical machining centers. This wide variety of machine tools requires an assortment of control technologies to power and manage the motion. For one customer requirement where a major agricultural equipment builder needed grinding, turning, and turn-grind machines, EMAG looked to Siemens for a standardized CNC solution.
