Siemens is exhibiting a digital twin of a tool changer on the booth. It demonstrates how a project can already be imaged as an exact virtual model in advance of its implementation. This allows the user to simulate the behavior of the workpiece and the machine, optimize performance, and apply the knowledge gained from previous design and production activities. As a result, the ever growing demands on productivity and flexibility can be met. The basis for this is to link the real and virtual worlds, for example through the MindSphere cloud-based, open IoT operating system, which helps machine manufacturers to analyze their machines during operations, and thus draw conclusions for the continuous optimization of processes.
Siemens is also exhibiting new HMI Comfort Panels, the Simatic IPC527G industrial PC, and the high-performance Sinamics S210 servo drive system coupled with Simotics S-1FK2 motors, in the current 400 V versions for a higher performance range up to seven kilowatts.
