CNC Control


The Fryer / Siemens 828-HS control is designed for ease of use in low volume toolroom and job shop facilities. Simple menu programming and fast set-up keys allow you make one-off parts in half the time of a manual machine. Multi mode operation allows you to use the machine manually, semi-automatic and full CNC mode. Canned cycles and graphic verify make set-up faster and easier.
  • Manual or CNC
  • Do-one mode
  • Teach mode
  • Conversational mode
  • Ultra reliable Siemens High Speed all digital control system
  • Regenerative drives save 40% electrical use
  • Digital drives provide better accuracy and surface finish
  • Absolute encoders never require you to ‘home’ machine
Lathe Contour
Geometry. Enter part dimensions using the Simple Geometry Creator. The dimensions are drawn on the screen while you enter them and missing information is automatically calculated.
Lathe Rough Cycle
Roughing cycle. Answer basic questions about the depth of cut, tool type and finish stock allowance.
Lathe Thread
Threading cycle. Answer basic questions about the thread size pitch and tool type.
Lathe Simulate
The 828-HS uses sophisticated solid model graphic verification to accurately show what your part will look like BEFORE you cut it. Also choose from wireframe or multi-view screen.
