- Siemens presents a new CNC for woodworking machines at the Ligna
- Sinumerik MC is the open CNC for customized processing machines
At the Ligna Woodworking Trade Fair 2019, Siemens is showcasing the Sinumerik MC control as a universal, open CNC system. Its optimized motion control, high-performance automation and the integrated Windows 10 operating system make it the ideal control, especially for wood, glass and stone cutting machines. With its open operating concept, the control system is also suitable for additive manufacturing, adhesive application, plate cutting, straightforward grinding, and laser or water jet cutting.
Whether for workpiece handling, retooling, postprocessing or parallel
machining, robots and machine tools are working ever more closely together.
Companies in almost all industrial sectors already benefit from robots today.
But integrating robots into automation and exploiting their full potential poses
many challenges. Under the motto "Seamless and fast integration of robot
kinematics into automation", Siemens will be presenting at this year's
automatica (Hall B6, Booth 302) how companies can overcome these
challenges and how the digital and real worlds can be connected through
robotics and automation solutions.
- Desigo PXC7 building automation controller enables tailor-made and scalable solutions for larger buildings
- Speeds up and simplifies engineering and commissioning process
- Higher resilience and availability thanks to BACnet Secure Connect communication
launch of the PXC4 and PXC5 controllers for the optimized control of small and
medium-sized buildings, Siemens has added the PXC7 to its Desigo portfolio to
offer even more flexibility to building automation practitioners. This new
addition allows professionals to program heating, ventilation and air
conditioning (HVAC) applications for larger buildings. Thanks to its simplified
integration capabilities, the Desigo PXC7 controller supports
system integrators in providing
a complete automation solution.

- Digital service offering supports machine users and machine manufacturers with the creation of a digital twin and with virtual commissioning
- Sinumerik One on show at EMO with more than 20 pilot customers
With the latest CNC generation, Sinumerik One, Siemens is presenting the essential component for the digital transformation of machine tools at EMO 2019. As a "digital native", the controller features versatile software for the creation of corresponding digital twins. Sinumerik One is setting new benchmarks in terms of productivity with its new hardware platform. A wide range of innovative technology functions help to improve processing speed, contour accuracy and processing quality.
- New NCU 1740 for higher scalability of Sinumerik One
- Sinumerik Run MyRobot /Direct Control V2.0 and Run MyRobot /Direct Handling V2.0 available for Sinumerik One
- New functions for the Digital Twin in Create MyVirtual Machine and Run MyVirtual Machine
Siemens is expanding its offering for the "Digital Native" CNC Sinumerik One. Two years after its market launch, the technology company is presenting numerous innovations in hardware and software for the Sinumerik One at EMO Milano and the virtual Siemens Machine Tool Days. In this context, Siemens is demonstrating how the powerful machine tool controller can be used in a highly productive, flexible, and modular way and in the best possible way for digital transformation. In terms of hardware, the new NCU 1740 complements the existing NCU 1750 and 1760 as well as the PPU 1740, thus expanding its use in modular machines.
Siemens Mobility to install a 2,000 km state-of-the-art high-speed rail network that will connect 60 cities throughout the country with trains that can operate up to 230 km/h. The integrated system will create the 6ᵗʰ largest high-speed rail network in the world, and will provide 90% of Egyptians access to a modern, safe, and affordable transportation system. The fully electrified network will cut carbon emissions by 70% compared to current car or bus transport, further supporting Egypt’s efforts in transforming its mobility to a more sustainable one. Siemens Mobility will deliver 41 Velaro high-speed trains, 94 Desiro High Capacity regional train sets, and 41 Vectron freight locomotives. This contract also includes the development of eight depots and yards and 15 years of maintenance.

- Siemens supports BioNTech in converting to vaccine production at the Marburg plant
- Key parts of the new Manufacturing Execution System ready to use after only two and a half months
- Digitalization enables paperless documentation of production
The BioNTech SE biotechnology company based in Mainz has converted an existing facility in Marburg for the production of the Covid-19 vaccine in a record time with assistance from Siemens. The production plant has been producing the active substance since February and the vaccine BNT162b2 (also known as COMIRNATY®) since the end of March. BioNTech acquired a production facility for this in the fall of 2020 that was already equipped with capabilities for producing biotechnological substances. Through collaboration with Siemens and the team of experts on site in Marburg, the project timeline for converting the existing facility for the production of mRNA-vaccine was cut from around one year down to five months, whereby the implementation of key parts of the new Manufacturing Execution System (MES) was reduced to two and half months. The new system and end-to-end digitalization of production enable conversion to “paperless documentation of production”, which can immediately fulfill all documentation requirements.
