even non-intrusively through plastic vessels. The transmitters’ 80GHz high
frequency delivers robust, reliable measurements even in challenging
environments such as those with vapors, condensation, turbulence, or solids. The
custom microchip technology delivers fast response and extremely high
sensitivity to detect even the weakest of signals.
In just one
week, Siemens and Aucma have developed an idea into a prototype for an
intelligent disinfection robot, which will soon join the battle against
Coronavirus and other viruses in hospitals. The electric robot can
disinfect up to 36,000 square meters in one hour and features a robust chassis
that can overcome obstacles and navigate slopes.
- Siemens opens its Additive Manufacturing Network to enable the efficient execution of design and printing requests by doctors, hospitals and suppliers of medical equipment in response to COVID-19 pandemic
- Siemens’ designers and engineers are a part of the AM Network to answer design requests
- Designers, engineers and service providers with 3D printers can offer expertise through the AM Network
In response to the ongoing global health crisis caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, Siemens is making its Additive Manufacturing (AM) Network along with its 3D printers, available to the global medical community to speed design and production of medical components. The AM Network connects users, designers and 3D-print service providers to enable faster and less complicated production of spare parts for machines like ventilators. The Siemens AM network is available globally and covers the entire value chain – from upload and simulation to checking the design up to the printing process and associated services.
Siemens has received TÜV
certification in compliance with IEC 62443-4-2 and -4-1 (standards for IT
security in industrial automation systems) for network components in the
Scalance XB-200, XC-200, XP-200, XF-200BA and XR-300WG product families. The
certification demonstrates that the product development process previously
certified in compliance with IEC 62443-4-1 has been consequently applied during
product development. It also confirms that key technical product requirements
stipulated by IEC 62443-4-2 have been taken into account and implemented in the
network components. Customers are therefore able to realize secure system
architectures, which clearly increases the overall security of a plant.
Siemens is expanding its high-end Simatic MV500 series of optical readers to include the Simatic MV560 X. With 5.3 megapixels, the device features the highest resolution in the product family. Like the MV560 U model, the MV560 X has two separate Ethernet ports and a working memory of 2 Gigabytes. Due to the high image resolution, the new device is ideal for reading particularly small codes in large image fields or numerous codes on large objects. In addition, the Simatic MV560 X can be used to implement completely new applications – even on fast-running production lines. A large number of images can also be stored directly on the camera without problems.
Siemens has been named a leading supplier of production software in a study conducted by renowned experts at ABI Research. ABI, a global tech market advisory firm, particularly praised the diversity of the Siemens offer, which includes software, hardware, and technology. With solutions from its integrated Xcelerator portfolio, Siemens supports its customers with digital transformation, helping them to better meet future production requirements.
The Associazione Liutaria Italiana (Italian Association of Stringed Instrument Makers) is a cultural association comprising instrument makers, researchers, and musicians. The aim of the association is the conservation of period instruments and the development of their modern counterparts. To achieve this, the team based around Professor Enrico Ravina from the Polytechnic School of Genoa University and engineer Paolo Sivestri has relied on solutions from the Siemens Digital Industries Software portfolio for over ten years. The experts investigate the sound quality of period stringed instruments and feed information back to modern instrument manufacturers to improve production. This is based on acoustic measurements and other instrument data captured by Siemens solutions. The experts are now working on producing a digital twin which will allow, among other things, old instruments to be faithfully reproduced for research purposes.
Increasing stock turnover frequency with shorter storage periods, small
order quantities with high delivery speeds, rising return rates and short-term
increases in delivery quantities. In the course of digitalization, the
intralogistics industry is also facing new challenges. With its Digital
Enterprise Portfolio, Siemens supports highly efficient, flexible and
intelligent applications in intralogistics. Siemens is thus supporting its
customers, both machine builders and operators of logistics centers, on the
path towards digital transformation. Using a digital twin for material transport
equipment, warehouse operation and performance, the entire value chain is
designed and optimized efficiently. This increases efficiency throughout the
building and operation of machines and plants, minimizes error rates and downtimes,
shortens development times and ensures long-term competitiveness. Through the
seamless interaction of the real and virtual world, the technology company
helps to increase the productivity and flexibility of plants while keeping
costs and energy consumption to a minimum.
unique portfolio from Siemens for digital transformation, the Digital Enterprise
Suite, offers an integrated portfolio of software-based systems and automation technologies.
The concept of the digital twin provides a closed connection between the virtual
world of planning for warehousing and conveying technology and its physical
world of operating and performance. Thus, it can be started at any point of the
value chain, starting with the design of the logistics concept up to operation
planning, operation technology, operation execution and services, and expand
the digitalization process step by step.
for intralogistics includes software solutions and automation systems for core
applications such as stacker cranes or shuttle warehouses, solutions for tasks
in internal industrial logistics and sorting technology as well as solutions
for parcel, postal and airport logistics.
- New Plant Intelligence options, fully integrated in WinCC Unified, available on tablet or PC
- “Performance Insight” option for simple display and calculation of key performance indicators (KPIs)
- Create and visualize structured planning of production processes with the "Calendar" option
launches two new Plant Intelligence options for the WinCC Unified system: The “Performance
Insight” and “Calendar” options extend the WinCC Unified visualization system
with functionality for more transparency and structured planning in the production
processes. The additional options can be individually combined according to
application requirements and are fully integrated in the system, so that all
functions are available to the user on various devices such as tablet or PC. By
using the information thus obtained and planning ahead, costs can be reduced,
and rejects avoided. In addition, production facilities can be better utilized,
which increases effectiveness and efficiency.
At the Hannover Messe 2020,
Hall 9, Booth D35, Siemens is presenting four new Sitop selectivity modules for
the reliable protection of 24-volt load circuits. Complementing the existing
Sitop SEL1200 and SEL1400 modules with eight outputs of ten amperes (A) output
current, the new versions of both modules offer 4x10 amperes and 8x5 amperes,
which means they can be tailored more precisely to the system. In addition,
comprehensive diagnostic functions simplify handling and troubleshooting in the
event of an error.
