Siemens and Industrie 4.0 in the US: two customer references

The selection of the U.S. to be the partner country for this years' Hannover Messe underlines the momentum that manufacturing and automation have gained in the United States. In addition to low labor costs and cheap energy, ensuring digitalization of the whole production process is a key to competitiveness.
Also "President Obama's participation in Hannover Messe – a first for a sitting U.S. President – presents a unique opportunity to showcase American innovation and ingenuity and to highlight the United States as a prime investment destination," said the White House Press Office in a release.
For many years, the U.S. manufacturing sector has evoked thoughts of economic decline, heavy job cuts and a hopeless outlook. In recent years, however, a foundation has been laid for improving the industrial landscape – and thus for restoring faith in manufacturing.
Siemens' next-generation software is used in every phase of product development, enabling manufacturers to optimize and customize equipment that touches American lives every day.


The Rolls-Royce Crosspointe facility in Virginia is a center of excellence for the manufacturing of precision-engineered engine components for some of the most advanced aircraft in the world. Rolls-Royce Crosspointe is the largest Rolls-Royce site by area in North America. Rolls-Royce Crosspointe implemented Siemens solutions from the top floor to the shop floor. Rolls-Royce uses Siemens manufacturing hardware and software. The company is Siemens' single largest Simatic IT customer, and it now uses this manufacturing execution system at more than 84 sites globally, which is more than 80 percent of all Rolls Royce manufacturing sites.

Local Motors

Local Motors designs, builds and sells vehicles via a platform that combines global-co-creation with local micro-manufacturing to bring hardware innovations – like the world's first 3D-printed car – to market at unprecedented speed. A Siemens PLM (Solid Edge) customer, Local Motors has opened a 45,000 square-foot facility at National Harbor, consisting of a lab for co-creation, research, technology, education and community events, a showroom, a retail store and a build floor for light assembly of products and vehicles. This is Local Motors' first location on the East Coast, and the first in the world to debut the first fleet of 3-D printed cars.
