- Top flexibility thanks to automated guided vehicles (AGVs)
- Conveyor technology solutions enable space-optimized construction
- All conveyor technology components were installed within a record time of 4.5 months only
Within a record time of 4.5 months, Siemens has installed all conveyor technology components for the final assembly of the first fully electric Porsche, the "Taycan". As a result, the time from installation to production of the first vehicle was halved compared to similar projects. As, due to several building restrictions, the final assembly production line had to be built up vertically, a manufacturing concept has been developed in which each level is used for production purposes. The Taycan facility at the parent plant in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen was put into operation in September last year.
- New plant intelligence options for the control and monitoring of recipe-controlled processes
- Easy orchestration of production sequences with “WinCC Unified Line Coordination” (LCS)
- Quick changes to processes in recipe and sequence-based production with “WinCC Unified Sequence” (SES)
Siemens is expanding its offer for the Simatic WinCC Unified visualization system to include two new plant intelligence options: Line Coordination (LCS) and Sequence (SES) enable the fast orchestration and adaptation of production sequences for the control and monitoring of recipe-controlled processes, such as those used in the food and beverages industry. With these new software options, users can flexibly design production sequences, monitor different plant sections and therefore utilize the capacity of individual production machines better and more evenly, increasing both effectiveness and economic efficiency. For both SES and LCS, Siemens supplies automation modules and the corresponding controls for the visualization, which can be engineered in the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal engineering framework. Production sequences can be parameterized with the corresponding modules, which eliminates programming effort and reduces engineering effort. The two new plant intelligence options can be combined to meet the relevant requirements.

- Siemens supports Hexr in the mass customization of additively manufactured bicycle helmets
- Digital Enterprise portfolio offers integrated software and automation solutions for additive manufacturing
- Additive Manufacturing Network – an online order-to-delivery collaboration platform for the industrial additive manufacturing community, helps streamline the AM production process
Bicycle helmets made to measure and in an
affordable framework for everyone - what was unthinkable a few years ago is now
becoming reality thanks to digitalization and additive manufacturing. The head
is simply scanned with a smartphone app and the process for the custom-made
helmet is initiated. Siemens, together with EOS, has supported this vision of
the bicycle helmet manufacturer Hexr. Siemens' Digital Enterprise portfolio
consists of software and automation solutions that optimize process steps along
the entire value chain of additive manufacturing. This holistic approach is
unique in the field of the industrialization of additive manufacturing. With
the help of end-to-end solutions, Siemens has created the digital twin of an
industrialized additive manufacturing factory, helping to optimize the design
and streamline the production processes for customized bicycle helmets even
before production begins. By combining simulation, design optimization and a
high degree of automation in production, the costs per part could be predicted
and significantly reduced, allowing Hexr to scale the scan-to-print application
to mass production.
