- 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.
- Up to 37% energy savings for cooling and ventilation
- Adaptive Flow Optimizer and continuous self-optimization
- Self-test reports for easy documentation of settings data
The Intelligent Valve from Siemens Smart Infrastructure, a self-optimizing, dynamic valve with cloud connection, now has an Adaptive Flow Optimizer, which is unique on the market. This technology, as well as new features such as automatic presetting, continuous optimization of the delta T limitation (T) and system-generated reports, make it possible to achieve cost and energy savings while maintaining comfort for the building occupants. For the first time, actions are autonomously evaluated and executed by the Intelligent Valve and communicated to the building operator.
Mobility to build 23 4-car Mireo trains for the Regensburg/Danube Valley rail
- The Mireo
trains will be delivered to operator agilis in 2024
by December 2024
Siemens Mobility has received an order to build 23 4-car Mireo trainsets for rail operator agilis Eisenbahngesellschaft mbH & Co. KG, a subsidiary of BeNEX GmbH. The trainsets will be delivered for the Regensburg/Danube Valley rail network in 2024 and are scheduled to enter passenger service in December that year. The Bavarian Railways Company (Bayerische Eisenbahngesellschaft or BEG), which plans, finances and controls regional and commuter rail operations on behalf of the state of Bavaria, had called for bids for new trains for parts of its network. The Mireo trains will serve on the new RE Line 50 (Nuremberg – Regensburg – Plattling) and the RB Line 51 (Neumarkt – Regensburg – Plattling).
