New services for online condition monitoring of industrial plants


Siemens is now offering "Asset Analytics Services," a new service for online condition monitoring of machines, production lines, and even entire industrial plants.

As part of the service, Siemens experts assist companies in recording and analyzing operating and condition-based data. The aim is to provide a clear picture on the state of critical machinery and plant and therefore to optimize their availability.

Siemens now offers "Asset Analytics Services", a new service for online condition monitoring of machines, production lines, and even entire industrial plants.

Siemens is offering the new condition monitoring service based on a scalable cloud infrastructure, making it suitable for companies of different sizes and from different industries and for a wide range of industrial applications.

In Asset Analytics Services, large volumes of physical data, such as vibration, temperature, or pressure levels, and process data from the control system are recorded in real time, before being preprocessed and transmitted to a Siemens Operation Center for analysis. Conformity with the Siemens security standard CERT and with ISO 27001 ensures the greatest possible data security. In the Siemens Operation Center, the data are analyzed and the results are sent to the customer via a web portal or as a report.

This also includes automatic alarming when critical limits are reached. The continuous acquisition and automated analysis of operating and condition-based data mean that any patterns, such as data profiles of damage incidents, can be detected at an early stage. System malfunctions can thus be remedied in good time and production outages avoided, helping companies to optimize their maintenance activities.

The Asset Analytics Services are available for various applications, for example, for condition monitoring of machine tools ("Machine Tool Analytics Services"). The focus here is on critical components, such as linear axes, main spindles, tool magazines, chip conveyors, or the automation technology with pneumatics and fluid systems.

For rotary industrial applications, such as pumps, compressors, or mills, Siemens provides "Asset Analytics Services for Rotating Equipment." Asset Analytics Services make it possible to monitor whole production lines, for example, press lines in the automotive industry. Measured values from ongoing operations and data from the plant control system can be analyzed, for example, oil pressure, air consumption, or press angle.

The company's portfolio also includes services for monitoring the industrial IT infrastructure. For example, the "Industrial Network Analytics Services" covers the diagnostics and continuous condition monitoring of plant networks. The individual services can be combined and expanded to include the analysis and optimization of entire industrial plants.

Based on the new offerings, Siemens is expanding its range of "Data-Driven Services," based on the acquisition and evaluation of production data.

Im Focus: Climate study finds evidence of global shift in the 1980s

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.

Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...

Im Focus: Lactate for Brain Energy

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.

In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...

Im Focus: Laser process simulation available as app for first time

In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.

Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
