Increase in productivity with integrated automation solutions

22.04.2008
Under the motto “Increase your productivity”, Siemens is showcasing automation and drive technology solutions for machine manufacturers, plant constructors and end users at this year’s Hannover Fair.

The focus of the Siemens exhibition is a live demonstration from the world of automobile production – from the processing of the raw materials, plant layout, product and factory simulation to the automation of machining centers and material handling systems.

With regard to the digital factory and PLM (Product Lifecycle Management), the visitor can see solutions for CAD, production simulation or digital product development. Topics such as energy efficiency and safety technology round off the exhibit. Siemens is promoting the training of students for technical professions by demonstrating the complete range of training careers in industry for the first time at its own booth in the TectoYou hall.

Added value through increased productivity, energy efficiency and solutions for the digital factory. These are the catchwords that describe the trade fair presence of Siemens at this year’s Hannover Fair. With their automation solutions, products and systems, the Siemens Drive Technologies and Industry Automation divisions are exhibiting innovations for the complete value-added chain. This encompasses product development solutions, automation solutions, as well as the networking of production and logistics systems, material management systems and production systems. To this end, Siemens offers an integrated range of products and solutions based on Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), which also embraces MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) and PLM.

At the center of the Siemens presence in hall 9 is the live demonstration from the automotive industry, a branch of industry which is facing extremely high pressure from competition, costs and innovation. The sector is tackling these challenges by standardizing production processes and making them more flexible. Automation as the key to increasing productivity plays a central role with manufacturers, first-tier suppliers and machine manufacturers. Siemens is demonstrating how productivity can be increased in all production sectors using solutions for the automotive industry as an example. From the processing of raw materials, plant configuration and simulation all the way to real production and services.

The central components of the live model are the systems dealing with all aspects of PLM and the digital factory. From CAD and production simulation to digital product development. In addition to the presentation at the main booth, Siemens is dedicating a separate booth in hall 17 to the digital factory/PLM. Additional value-added aspects for production can be seen in the live automobile manufacturing application. The topics range from industrial communication and safety solutions to innovations for integrated solutions for the complete drive train.

For the focal topic of energy efficiency, Siemens is showing practicable solutions ranging from software and energy management and regeneration-capable converters to energy-efficient motors of the NEMA and 1LE1 series at the main booth in hall 9 and in hall 6. These technologies and innovative approaches for the entire life cycle of a plant will help to achieve considerable cost efficiency and environmental protection in production plants through energy savings.

The Hannover Fair is the only platform in the world where Siemens can present its extensive range of products, systems, solutions and services in their entirety. Siemens is the largest exhibitor at the Hannover Fair, with around 4,500 square meters of booth space. In addition to the technical innovations, Siemens is also involved in recruiting young people for technical professions, courses of study and training. For the second time, Siemens is the main sponsor in support of the TectoYou activities. At a separate booth in hall 26, Siemens is showing the complete range of training options and advanced programs for students and people entering a profession. In all, 2,000 students from Siemens partner schools and contact schools are coming with their teachers to Hanover from all over Germany in order to get information about career opportunities in the technical environment.

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
