New services for online condition monitoring of industrial plants

27.03.2014

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: Lasers are the key to mastering challenges in lightweight construction

Many joining and cutting processes are possible only with lasers. New technologies make it possible to manufacture metal components with hollow structures that are significantly lighter and yet just as stable as solid components. In addition, lasers can be used to combine various lightweight construction materials and steels with each other. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen is presenting a range of such solutions at the LASER World of Photonics trade fair from June 22 to 25, 2015 in Munich, Germany, (Hall A3, Stand 121).

Lightweight construction materials are popular: aluminum is used in the bodywork of cars, for example, and aircraft fuselages already consist in large part of...

Im Focus: Solid-state photonics goes extreme ultraviolet

Using ultrashort laser pulses, scientists in Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have demonstrated the emission of extreme ultraviolet radiation from thin dielectric films and have investigated the underlying mechanisms.

In 1961, only shortly after the invention of the first laser, scientists exposed silicon dioxide crystals (also known as quartz) to an intense ruby laser to...

Im Focus: Advance in regenerative medicine

The only professorship in Germany to date, one master's programme, one laboratory with worldwide unique equipment and the corresponding research results: The University of Würzburg is leading in the field of biofabrication.

Paul Dalton is presently the only professor of biofabrication in Germany. About a year ago, the Australian researcher relocated to the Würzburg department for...

Im Focus: Basel Physicists Develop Efficient Method of Signal Transmission from Nanocomponents

Physicists have developed an innovative method that could enable the efficient use of nanocomponents in electronic circuits. To achieve this, they have developed a layout in which a nanocomponent is connected to two electrical conductors, which uncouple the electrical signal in a highly efficient manner. The scientists at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel have published their results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications” together with their colleagues from ETH Zurich.

Electronic components are becoming smaller and smaller. Components measuring just a few nanometers – the size of around ten atoms – are already being produced...
