The main focus at booth Q26 will be on the engineering framework TIA Portal and sustainable production. The tobacco industry operates in a complex and challenging environment: Market demand is calling for ever more new products, global competition is increasing, statutory regulations are changing the business playing field, counterfeit products and illegal imports are a permanent item on the industry’s agenda.
At this year’s TabExpo, the trade show for manufacturers of tobacco products, tobacco, cigarette components, machines, laboratory instruments and logistics providers, Siemens will be exhibiting as a long-standing and competent partner to the tobacco industry. The company provides answers for the tobacco industry on how to leverage optimization potential in terms of productivity, availability and cost reduction.
The company’s Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) solutions and the Engineering Framework TIA Portal provide the basis. The TIA Portal is used in the tobacco industry to process all engineering tasks in a single environment.
An intuitive user interface and efficient navigation help the user to significantly reduce time and costs and cut the engineering expenditure - from development through assembly and commissioning to maintenance.
In communication, Profinet, the fastest communication standard worldwide, is the key player: Based on the Industrial Ethernet standard, highly efficient networking is possible even for plants with a marked decentralized organization.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
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:...
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...
