- Supports uptake of low emission transport across Australia
One of Australia’s leading bus manufacturers, Custom Denning, has selected Siemens’ electric bus charging stations and digital depot management solution forits fleet of fully Australian designed and built Element electric buses. The charging stations will support the bus manufacturer’s prototype electric buses and be available for future eBus orders of its customers.
The state of Baden-Württemberg has ordered three Mireo Plus B trains from Siemens Mobility. The battery-electric trains will ensure locally emission-free traffic on the new Hermann-Hesse-Bahn between Renningen and Calw from 2023. Siemens Mobility will additionally take over maintenance of the trains over their entire service life. By being equipped with the latest European Train Control System, the Mireo Plus B trains are equipped for ETCS Level 2 operation. This new standard offers more track capacity, greater punctuality as well as interoperability in cross-border rail traffic. The reorder option became possible as part of a past order for 20 Mireo Plus B for the Ortenau network in 2020.
- S-Bahn Hamburg: Hanseatic city is pioneering digital rail operations
- Passengers benefit from expanded rail services and greater punctuality
Deutsche Bahn (DB) and Siemens Mobility have developed the world’s first train that operates by itself in rail traffic. Dr. Richard Lutz, CEO of DB, and Dr. Roland Busch, CEO of Siemens AG, together with Dr. Peter Tschentscher, Mayor of Hamburg, presented the train today as it made its premiere run as part of the Digital S-Bahn Hamburg project.
- Medium-voltage switchgear at Münichtal substation uses clean air technology
- Innovative insulating medium consists of components from ambient air
- Fluorine gas-free power distribution solution enhances sustainability of Energie Steiermark Group
The Münichtal substation of Energie Steiermark Group in
Austria now has a sustainable medium-voltage switchgear from Siemens. The power
distribution system has been in operation since the end of 2020 and has just
been officially handed over to the customer after a trial period. This is the
first installation of fluorine-gas free switchgear from Siemens’
climate-friendly blue portfolio at a customer site in Austria.

The best of two
worlds – EMO 2021, Siemens is going hybrid. Under the motto
"Digitalization in Machine Tool Manufacturing - Infinite opportunities
from infinite data", Siemens will be demonstrating at EMO Milano and at
the virtual Siemens Machine Tool Days 2021, which will be held at the same
time, how the full potential of data can be used for higher productivity. This
is because combining the real world with the digital world enables
manufacturers and users of machine tools to act flexibly and sustainably.
You can experience the Siemens solutions live and meet with the experts in person at the EMO exhibition booth (Hall 7 | E06) in Milan. Or visit the Siemens Machine Tool Days (SMTD) online – Virtual Experience with virtual showroom, auditorium and Meet-the-Expert sessions.
We value for Siemens and for our customers by enabling the implementation of new technologies through our financial expertise and domain know-how. In our newsroom you will find current information on major trends that are shaping global industries and societies.
- Two new edge devices enable scalability of industrial edge offering for machine tools
- Analyze My Workpiece /Capture now also captures
data from external sensors
- Software applications available via Machine
Tool Software Store
expanding its Industrial Edge offering for machine tools with two new edge
devices. In addition to the already available IPC227E, there is now the
IPC127E, an entry-level device, and the IPC427E, the most powerful edge device
for machine tools. The IPC127E serves as an entry-level solution to provide
connectivity and performance for simple use cases. With the IPC427E, Siemens is
launching a device with sufficient computing power to meet the demands of
AI-based edge applications and sophisticated data analytics. The new Simatic
ET200 adapter also offers the possibility of connecting additional external
sensors and acquiring their data at a sampling rate of up to 10kHz. For this
purpose, the already known edge application Analyze MyWorkpiece /Capture has
received an update. In addition to data on the workpiece, tool and tool path,
this app can now also record data from external sensors in high temporal
resolution. As a novelty, the app can also stream process data via MQTT to an
external MQTT endpoint. In addition, users can visualize the workpiece of a
5-axis machining operation with the newly developed online coordinate
retransformation from the machine coordinate system to the workpiece coordinate
system. This is interesting because the visualization of the machining axes in
visualization applications such as Analyze MyWorkpiece /Toolpath gives no
indication of the machined workpiece. All other recorded data can subsequently
be visualized and analyzed with Analyze MyWorkpiece /Toolpath. The insights
gained enable optimization of the CAD/CAM model and the generated NC program. In
addition, Analyze MyWorkpiece /Toolpath now allows the creation of a realistic
surface reconstruction using process data recorded with Industrial Edge for
Machine Tools. This allows the workpiece quality to be evaluated before a
workpiece has even been manufactured, because the surface reconstruction also
works with process data from an air cut.
