SPS IPC Drives 2014, Hall 11
The SPS IPC Drives on November 25 in Nuremberg marked the launch of the Siemens IDS Roadshow, which hits the road this winter under the banner of "Extra Value Integrated". From Nuremberg, the truck will be setting out to visit Siemens' industrial customers across much of Europe over the coming months.
With this mobile exhibition, Siemens intends to demonstrate how Integrated Drive Solutions can enhance the efficiency, reliability and productivity of industrial applications and so achieve sustainable competitive advantages. The IDS Roadshow will be focusing on ways in which Integrated Drive Systems can add value for customers.
The truck will be equipped with a full complement of application-specific exhibits and live demos, all of which are designed to illustrate the tangible benefits to be gained from combining ideally matched drive and automation components for use in the most diverse applications and branches of industry.
Before the IDS Truck embarks on its European tour, visitors to the SPS IPC Drives will have the chance to preview the mobile exhibition at the Siemens booth in Hall 11 during the trade fair from 25 – 28 November in Nuremberg. The exhibits on show cover a vast spectrum of technologies, from intralogistics through conveying technology to pump, fan and compressor applications, as well as vertical mills and large-scale medium-voltage applications in the process industry. In each case, the exhibits graphically illustrate the benefits of a systematic three-pronged approach to integration – the core element of IDS. This entails a horizontal process of integration from the gear and coupling through the motor and converter along the energy flow, based on the comprehensive Siemens drive portfolio. The second level takes place vertically within the automation hierarchy through integration into the control architecture of industrial production processes. In this context, the mobile exhibition highlights integration of the drive train and its components into the TIA Portal Engineering Framework, and the potential this opens up for efficient engineering. The third integration level relates to the product life cycle, and involves the complete data technology integration of components into the relevant industrial planning, design and commissioning processes. In this field, the IDS Truck demonstrates how integrated software and comprehensive services can ensure not only faster commissioning and greater reliability, but also reduced maintenance costs.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
