Siemens to debut at the Glass South America Exhibition
This year Siemens will be presenting its portfolio of products for the glass industry at the Glass South America Exhibition in Brazil for the first time.
The company will be showcasing solutions for integrated plant-wide automation at the show, which runs from May 17 – 19, 2012.
The Siemens “Plant-wide-Automation” portfolio covers every aspect of automation, from the complete integration of all machine and plant components through to industrial WHR (waste heat recovery) systems. Siemens will also be showcasing services for the analysis and efficiency improvement of existing production facilities through to life cycle management and modernization, such as energy efficiency solutions and sustainability programs (EES, Energy & Environmental Services), maintenance concepts to increase productivity (IPM, Integral Plant Maintenance) and condition monitoring to ensure fail-safe operation of production plant (CRM, Condition Monitoring & Reliability).
By presenting its portfolio at the show, Siemens aims to demonstrate to the South American glass industry ways in which it can combine cost-efficient, environmentally friendly glass manufacturing methods with a top quality product using innovative concepts.
New production capacity is currently being created all over Brazil in a bid to address the growing demand for high quality glass. Particularly where new facilities are being constructed, special importance is attached to optimizing energy and cost efficiency.
Siemens Industry has been involved with the glass industry for over 160 years. In recent years, it has been responsible for equipping some of the most significant float glass production plants, supplying complete energy distribution, drive technology, automation and instrumentation systems.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
