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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
