Siemens offers concrete solution portfolio for Industrie 4.0 with Digital Enterprise

24.11.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • Siemens exhibits comprehensive range of solutions for the electrification, automation and digitalization of industrial processes
  • Modules for the Digital Enterprise already capable of addressing the challenges of Industrie 4.0 and digitalization today
  • Digital Enterprise portfolio offers competitive benefits to companies of all sizes, from both the discrete and process industries
  • All key components for transformation to the Digital Enterprise from a single source


In Hall 11, Siemens will be exhibiting its integrated portfolio of hardware, software and services for the electrification, automation and digitalization of industrial processes. The presentation will focus primarily on the company's portfolio aimed at building the Digital Enterprise, in which all value adding processes are digitally supported – across the entire product and plant life cycle.

Siemens has developed a portfolio which will enable its customers from the manufacturing industry to make the transition to the Digital Enterprise – whether large-scale corporations or SMEs. "We realized the growth potential offered by digitalization in the discrete production and process industries at a very early stage, and with the Digital Enterprise portfolio have consistently aligned our product offering towards this objective.

With a range of concrete products and solutions, this year we will be demonstrating how our customers can already begin the step-by-step transition towards Industrie 4.0 today" said Klaus Helmrich, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, speaking at the SPS IPC Drives 2015.

The company's focus on the challenges of digitalization is also reflected in the slogan chosen for the Siemens trade fair booth "On the way to Industrie 4.0 – Driving the Digital Enterprise". "We are supporting our customers in their bid to become more competitive – by reducing the time-to-market and helping them achieve faster, more flexible and more efficient production", continued Helmrich. "The processes implemented by the discrete and process industries vary considerably – and therefore require different solutions", said Helmrich.

"Our Digital Enterprise portfolio addresses all of these different needs cohesively along the entire length of the value chain, and that goes for all sizes of company." At the same time, all the steps within the Digital Enterprise are seamlessly linked, from the virtual through to the real production world – with a continuous flow of data from the product design through to servicing and back. In this way Siemens is helping its customers to bring about a significant improvement to the flexibility of their production processes as product design becomes ever more individualized, and to shorten their time-to-market.

"Our customers benefit from our leading automation and extensive software portfolio, which is becoming ever more closely integrated with digitalization and which we are expanding all the time. At this year's SPS IPC Drives, we'll be showcasing an array of product innovations across the whole bandwidth of our portfolio", said Helmrich.

Of these, 25 landmark innovations for the discrete and process industries will be prominently featured as highlights at the booth. In terms of software, these include new releases such as PLM Software Teamcenter Version 11 and also Version 9.0 of the Simatic Process Device Manager. As part of its Industrial Communication portfolio, Siemens will be presenting new telecontrol systems.

New Scalance products have now been added to the Industrial Security Defense-in-Depth concept, and for MindSphere – Siemens Cloud for Industry, a new connector box will be featured for the secure capture and transmission of machine and plant data to the cloud.

As the central exhibition highlight at its booth, Siemens will be showcasing not only its extensive automation portfolio, but based on this also the Digital Enterprise and the four pillars needed for the digital transformation of industrial processes: Software, communication solutions, security concepts and solutions as well as data-based services. Next to the Digital Enterprise presentation in the center of the booth, two exhibition highlights will be illustrating practically-based solutions for the electrification, automation and digitalization of industrial processes.

The first of these is a multi-carrier system for packaging and filling machines developed in association with Festo. Simulation and downstream engineering using the TIA Portal (Totally Integrated Automation) permits the highly flexible transport of goods, enabling maximum individualization right down to batch size one.

By linking to the public Siemens Cloud for Industry, all the production data generated by this machine can be seamlessly tracked and evaluated live while in operation. With this capability, this exhibit is a representative example of digitalization in machine building from the engineering stage through to operation. The benefits include greater process quality as a result of simulation, improved flexibility due to fast, simple adaptation to new packaging formats and a shorter time-to-market through modularization and simulation.

The second exhibition highlight illustrates how electrical power distribution is integrated into digital industrial processes in practical operation today. Using the model of a Sivacon sicube 8MF1 series control cabinet, visitors experience how a "digital twin" unites virtual control cabinet engineering with real production automation. The integration of electrical power distribution into digital environments takes place here on three levels: into automated engineering processes with an extensive spectrum of software and data, into industrial automation through devices and open interfaces with communication capability, and finally into integral energy efficiency concepts using systems, components and software for energy data measurement. The result: improved availability of components and plants.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
