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.

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:...
Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
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,...
