SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11
Siemens is expanding its open platform "Siemens Cloud for Industry" to form the basis of new digital business models for industrial companies. The new Connector Box is a Simatic IPC-based cloud gateway that transmits machine and system data easily and securely to the Cloud.
With this solution it is possible to extract and transmit data from control and drive systems from Siemens and 3rd party suppliers. This functionality will also be integrated into the Siemens portfolio of industrial communication products. The data is then available for evaluation on the platform, which uses SAP HANA Cloud Platform technology.
Siemens offers two powerful web services for analysis: Visual Analyzer and Fleet Manager. Users can assess the states of machines and systems and optimize them. In the future, users will be able to use the Siemens Cloud for Industry, which is designed as an open ecosystem, to develop their own web services. These can be used as the basis for their own digital services, such as predictive maintenance, energy data management and resource optimization.
Users include, for example, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). The platform enables them to develop and offer new digital services on the basis of their machine data. Reduced downtime is one of the benefits they achieve by monitoring and analyzing the data of their machine fleets, which may be scattered all over the world.
The Siemens Cloud for Industry is currently in the pilot phase. By expanding this new platform Siemens is driving forward the digitalization of industry. The Siemens Cloud for Industry is an important part of the Digital Enterprise Strategy.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
