Buffoli and Siemens jointly developed an innovative solution, which uses PROFINET as the link between the BUFFOLI DIGITAL CNC and the digital drives of the SINAMICS series.

This allows high performances, fast real-time communication between the CNC, drives and servomotors as well as a highly flexible bus system. Buffoli designed and produced the first machine tool in the world using a DIGITAL CNC and PROFINET as motion control system. A Buffoli machine has been exhibited in the Siemens booth at BIMU in 2008. The partnership is supported by the University of Brescia.
