- Infrastructure for private industrial 5G networks with a focus on automation applications
- The solution is already in use at Siemens plants and pilot customers like Salzgitter AG
- 5G is crucial for mobile robots, autonomous logistics, driverless transport systems, and edge devices
For the first time, the technology company Siemens is launching a private infrastructure developed in-house for the 5G mobile communications standard. The solution enables industrial companies to build their own local 5G networks that will provide optimal support for automation applications. "By building their own 5G networks, industrial companies are launching the next stage of connected production," says Axel Lorenz, CEO of Process Automation at Siemens. "5G is crucial for applications like mobile robots, autonomous logistics, and driverless transport systems in factories. Siemens' private 5G infrastructure also gives users sole control over the data in their 5G network at all times, and they can custom-configure the network for their applications."

- 106 new trains delivered on schedule and in passenger service
- New trains offer a high level of comfort, state-of-the-art passenger information and cameras for greater security
- Ceremonial delivery of last train of the new 483/484 series to enter service
The new Berlin S-Bahn fleet has been completed today: all 106 trains of
the new series are now in service. The trains, equipped with air conditioning, state-of-the-art
passenger information systems and cameras for greater security, offer passengers a new level of
comfort and convenience. The new fleet also increases the transport capacity in parts of the
city’s S-Bahn network, thus expanding services. In the course of replacing the older trains, the
number of cars per train was also increased. For customers, this has specific benefits: longer
trains operate on the Ring lines S41/S42 as well as the S8 line, and the S8 line is extended to
Wildau during peak hours. The new S-Bahn fleet now offers a total of around 18,000 seats. The
new trains have entered service successively since the beginning of 2021, and have been
operating on lines S41, S42, S46, S47 and S8 since then.
- Mireo Plus H hydrogen train reduces CO2
emissions on routes around Augsburg
- Passenger service starts in mid-2024
Siemens Mobility has
completed the first test runs with the Mireo Plus H hydrogen-powered train in
Bavaria. The two-car trainset will enter passenger service in mid-2024 on
routes between Augsburg and Füssen and Augsburg and Peissenberg on the rail
network of Bayerische Regiobahn (BRB). Pilot operations of the train are
planned for 30 months and are supported by the State of Bavaria. Siemens
Mobility and Bavaria signed the corresponding development partnership in 2021.
- Sinumerik Ctrl-E in V6.22 with new functions for evaluating and reducing energy consumption
- Flexible HMI portfolio for multifunctional machine tools
- Perfect compatibility in use and programming for easy integration into the existing machine fleet
At this year's EMO, Siemens is expanding its range of products and services with the "Digital Native" CNC Sinumerik One. The new CNC generation from Siemens, which was launched on the market in 2019, comes with numerous innovations in software and hardware. With the new Sinumerik software version V6.22, there are new technology functions for the Sinumerik One that increase transparency in the machine, simplify operation, reduce machine wear, and increase performance. This leads to the optimal use of available resources, for example by reducing scrap and repairs. It also helps to increase machine productivity by minimizing idle and production times, for example.
- Humanitarian assistance for those impacted by the Morroco earthquake and Liby flooding
- Companies will match every euro donatd by their people
- Siemens Caring Hands e.V. supports relief organizations on the ground
and Siemens Healthineers have each provided €500,000 in immediate assistance to
mitigate the suffering of earthquake and flood victims in Morrocco and Libya
and to support rescue efforts. In addition, both companies have called on the
people they employ to make donations. Every euro contributed as part of this
donation drive will be matched.

- Framework agreement worth more than five billion
- Further development of the
deployment in 2028
Siemens Mobility has won the tender for a framework agreement to deliver
up to 540 single-deck electric multiple-unit trains for Austrian Federal
- Number of people in the company’s educational programs in Germany grows 15 percent: more than 1,500 apprentices and participants in work-study programs to start their careers at Siemens in 2023
- Almost all apprenticeships and work-study positions on offer focus on jobs in technical areas, including IT
- Siemens and FAU are cooperating for a new English-language master’s program in sustainability management
More than 1,500 apprentices and participants in work-study programs in Germany will start their careers at Siemens on September 1. Despite the scarcity of applicants in the country’s apprenticeship market, this number has significantly increased compared to the previous year (2022: 1,300; 15 percent increase). For a while now, there has been an imbalance between supply and demand on Germany’s apprenticeship market: At the start of August, more than 220,000 training positions were reported as vacant. However, only around 117,000 of the country’s young people are currently looking for an apprenticeship.
