- 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."

Siemens AG and DMG MORI, global leaders in
automation and precision machine tools, are offering an industry-defining
digital twin for machine tool processing on the Siemens Xcelerator Marketplace.
Based on the Digital Native CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) Sinumerik One, this
offering encompasses a digital twin of the control system, the machine tool and
the workpiece, enabling breakthrough improvements in sustainability,
flexibility and time-to-market. CNC SINUMERIK ONE is the leading-edge control
system responsible for machining with machine tools.
Under the motto "Accelerate transformation for a sustainable tomorrow", Siemens will be presenting at this year's EMO how companies in the machine tool industry can master current challenges, such as the increasing need for energy efficiency and sustainability, while at the same time meeting the demand for high-quality, affordable, and individualized products.
The key to meeting these challenges - building on automation - lies in digitalization and the resulting data transparency. Only a digital enterprise is able to connect the real world with the digital world and make the right decisions using smart software tools in order to produce flexibly, quickly and sustainably.
You can experience the Siemens solutions and meet with the experts in
person at the EMO exhibition booth (Hall 9, G54) in Hannover.
- 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.
- Equipping the Harburg II bus depot in Hamburg is a follow-on project to the successful construction of three technical centers at the Alsterdorf bus depot
- Infrastructure to establish an electric bus fleet in Saarlouis
- 40 charging points in total
- Charging infrastructure, including planning, construction and connection to the medium-voltage grid
Siemens has received two major orders to set up
the charging infrastructure for electric buses (e-buses) in two cities in
Germany. In Hamburg, Siemens will again support Hamburger Hochbahn AG, one of
Germany´s largest public transport companies, in reaching its goal of operating
a completely emission-free bus fleet by 2030. In Saarlouis, Siemens will enable
the smooth transition to electric buses for Kreisverkehrsbetriebe Saarlouis
(KVS GmbH). The projects include planning, installing the charging
infrastructure and integrating it into the medium-voltage grid. This is
complemented by multi-year maintenance contracts. In Hamburg alone, eliminating
all diesel-powered buses will save approximately 66,000 tons of CO2
- Siemens launches study of 1,400 executives globally revealing regional, city and industry insights regarding the infrastructure transition across energy systems, mobility and buildings
- Decarbonization is a top priority within the infrastructure transition, but progress is too slow
- Over 50% of executives believe decarbonization is a competitive advantage, but less than half believe their country has an effective decarbonization strategy
- Technology and digitalization key levers of a successful infrastructure transition
Siemens Smart Infrastructure has released key insights into the divisive nature of the infrastructure transition in a new report, titled “Siemens Infrastructure Transition Monitor 2023: The Great Divide on The Path to Net Zero.” Data from the report reveals that there is limited alignment on priorities and how best to progress towards a decarbonized and resource-efficient world. Whilst more than half of people surveyed believe the infrastructure transition is accelerating in their region, a quarter of participants - senior executives from seven major industry groups - said that progress is “too slow”, while 29 percent believe progress is “coordinated”, and 31 percent describe it as “on target”.
- 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.
