All in balance – Air freight handling at Zurich airport relies on Siemens precision weighing technology

Cargo handlers at airports such as Cargologic AG ensure that checked-in freight is accurately weighed and then quickly stowed, so that aircraft are handled according to schedule. Cargologic relies on Siemens weighing technology to weigh the air freight at Zurich airport thus ensuring that all the individual load cells in use (over 150 analog load cells) are reliably monitored. The Siemens solution provides Cargologic with the benefits of an up-to-date system which is seamlessly integrated into existing processes. The modern system reduces downtimes for the load cells, increases availability of the entire weighing process, and increases air freight security in Switzerland.

Focusing closely on the sun – Heat protection for the world’s largest solar telescope using Siemens software

The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) was recently commissioned on the Pacific island of Maui. The 41.5 metre high telescope is the world’s largest of its kind and enables scientists to observe the solar surface more closely than ever before. A major challenge in the design of the DKIST was in minimizing the thermal energy absorbed by the focus on the sun. For a special heat absorption system, Aavid Thermacore – the specialist thermal technologies contractor – relies on solutions from the Siemens Digital Industries Software portfolio. In this way, the thermal energy is reduced from 2.5 megawatts per square metre to just 300 watts. The engineers were also able to ensure that the resulting heat does not degrade the image quality.

Glass Industry 4.0 – Digital twins, Industrial Edge and artificial intelligence leverage potential 

The glass industry, like many industries, has benefited from Industry 4.0 and digitalization solutions for some time. The key element is the digital twin. Whether for greenfield or brownfield plants – the principle is always based on an integrated concept of the digital twin of product, production and performance. Siemens offers not only the necessary hardware and software components but also the relevant services through “Digitalization Consulting”. Solutions for Industrial Edge as well as current and future possible uses of artificial intelligence (AI) are also available.
