Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015: Hall 9, Booth D35
Siemens has completed its spectrum of Simotics FD low-voltage motors. The new motors, covering the output range from 200 to 1,600 kilowatts and with shaft heights ranging between 315 and 450 millimeters, are optimized for converter operation and are particularly energy efficient, especially in the partial load range.
In combination with Sinamics low-voltage converters, they form an Integrated Drive System (IDS) that meets the requirements of the IES2 system efficiency class. Compared to the reference system of the standard, this means that losses are reduced by 35 percent.
The modular structure provides customers with maximum flexibility, allowing them to choose for example between air cooling and water cooling or between self-ventilation and forced ventilation. Service concepts such as predictive condition monitoring round off the portfolio.
The Simotics FD motors are ideally suited for use with Sinamics low-voltage converters and, as part of an IDS, offer a cost-effective, energy-efficient complete system that generates very little noise.
In combination with the Sinamics low-voltage converters, the drive train meets the requirements of the IES2 system efficiency class. If the entire drive system is water-cooled, heat recovery can be used to boost efficiency even further. Because the power density of the water-cooled motors is up to 30% higher, they are extremely compact.
The terminal box can be rotated in steps of 90 degrees, is diagonally divided and has a large format, making it particularly easy to connect. Comprehensive service, ranging from online condition monitoring and repair right through to retrofitting, is ensured via the global service network. The innovative and compact new motor design is compatible with the Simotics TN series N-compact. It has no need for external cooling ribs; these are integrated directly in the stator core in the rectangular gray cast-iron enclosure, enabling cooling to take place in the enclosure close to the heat source.
The Sinamics G120P converter and Simotics FD motor combination has been designed specifically for pump-and-fan applications, where it performs particularly well. Simotics FD motors are now used widely across all sectors, including plastics, cement, mining, steel, marine, paper, crane, water/wastewater and chemical. Thanks to the latest addition, they now cover the entire output range.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
