One of the focal points of this year’s Siemens offering at the biggest European trade fair for the beverage industry will be the Braumat process control system developed specifically to meet the needs of breweries. Also featured will be solutions for the manufacture of dairy products and juices based on the Simatic PCS 7 process control system.
At its booth in Hall 7, Siemens will be unveiling new functionality of its Braumat brewery process control system. The new features permit high-flexibility longterm archiving of production data in a central SQL (Structured Query Language) database. The tool integrated in the database permits the simple plant-specific evaluation of production data for quality assurance and material reconciliation purposes.
Parallel link-up to the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) level, for example to Simatic IT from Siemens, is also possible with extreme ease using the new system.
Under the heading of industrial software, Siemens will be showcasing comprehensive possibilities for process optimization. Simatic IT, for instance, will be on show in the form of a fully extended Manufacturing Execution System including recipe management, and also as a Simatic ITbased system for efficiency monitoring and the detection of weak spots in beverage filling systems. Both these two exhibits testify to the outstanding potential offered by industrial information technology. Visitors to the trade fair booth will have the chance to gain an overview of Siemens process instrumentation. Examples featured at the show will include the ultra-compact Coriolis flowmeter Sitrans FC430, which is capable of achieving a measurement accuracy of 0.1 of a percent.
Also worthy of special mention is the radar level transmitter Sitrans LR560, which measures solids such as cereals and malt using 78 gigahertz technology for ultra-precise measurement results.
Water treatment is another key area of this year’s Siemens presentation at the Brau Beviale 2012. Exhibits will include the Vantage series, a new reverse osmosis system for process water treatment. Using energy-efficient components, flexible operating modes and improved water recovery rates, this system is distinguished by its low overall operating costs.
Addressing the over-arching topic area of energy management, Siemens will be showcasing its “Energy and Environmental Services” portfolio, which includes support services for companies seeking to introduce ISO50001, as well as assistance in the identification and implementation of savings potential.
Also featured will be a methodical approach to the introduction of energy data management systems (EDMS), as well as the energy efficiency products Simatic B. Data and WinCC/PCS 7 powerrate.Siemens Beverage Industry

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...
