Siemens integrates cutting-edge technologies for more environmentally efficient and flexible production 

At SPS, Siemens is showcasing numerous innovations and sector-specific applications that illustrate how these requirements can be met using new products, solutions and services from the Digital Enterprise portfolio. For example, a more precise and powerful digital twin helps to significantly reduce CO 2emissions in product development through the comprehensive simulation of real production. The analysis of production processes highlights potential savings for resources such as water and power. And last but not least, the use of innovative production methods – for example Additive Manufacturing – can save materials and prevent waste. With this portfolio, Siemens is paving the way for modular, highly flexible and above all environmentally efficient production flows.
Increasing requirements for greater flexibility and productivity cannot be met through conventional automation solutions alone. An integrated, scalable system is required from production to the Cloud. The technical prerequisites for this are already available in the form of end-to-end solutions across the entire value chain, which create an even more seamless connection between the virtual and the real world – for all discrete industry and process industries. This is achieved using platform innovations such as Sinumerik One, the first digital-native CNC system, the innovative web-based process control system Simatic PCS neo, the newly developed visualization platform Simatic WinCC Unified and the Xcelerator portfolio, which combines the entire spectrum of industry software, services and MindSphere with an extended Mendix platform for the development of low-code apps.
The trend toward flexible and modular production concepts also creates challenges for wireless communication: more devices, greater reliability and lower latency. The communicative networking of production and logistics elements is the key; from networked automation through to more flexible production. Industrial 5G is the basis for this as it offers ultra-reliable broadband transmission and ultra-low latency for networks with a large number of devices.
Another element for the next step in implementing digital transformation is the growing ecosystem for Industrial Edge and Cloud. This enables data integration from data analysis on the shop floor through the automation system to the Cloud. To this end, Siemens offers new Edge apps for machine tools. In addition, Siemens has acquired Edge technology from US company Pixeom, strengthening its portfolio for easy app management and central device updates even on distributed infrastructures.
Digitalization is increasingly changing the face of industry: the more powerful connection of the virtual and the real world leads from the conventional showroom to the digital design and sales room, from the foreman’s office on site to the simulation room in the factory and from linked automation to the flexible shop floor.
