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.

Soft robots have a distinct advantage over their rigid forebears: they can adapt to complex environments, handle fragile objects and interact safely with humans. Made from silicone, rubber or other stretchable polymers, they are ideal for use in rehabilitation exoskeletons and robotic clothing. Soft bio-inspired robots could one day be deployed to explore remote or dangerous environments.
Most soft robots are actuated by rigid, noisy pumps that push fluids into the machines' moving parts. Because they are connected to these bulky pumps by tubes,...
Researchers at TU Graz are working together with European partners on new possibilities of measuring vehicle emissions.
Today, air pollution is one of the biggest challenges facing European cities. As part of the Horizon 2020 research project CARES (City Air Remote Emission...
Over the next three years, researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, University of Cambridge, École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI-Paris) and Empa will be working together with the Dutch Polymer manufacturer SupraPolix on the next generation of robots: (soft) robots that ‘feel pain’ and heal themselves. The partners can count on 3 million Euro in support from the European Commission.
Soon robots will not only be found in factories and laboratories, but will be assisting us in our immediate environment. They will help us in the household, to...
Scientists at the University of Leeds have created a new form of gold which is just two atoms thick - the thinnest unsupported gold ever created.
The researchers measured the thickness of the gold to be 0.47 nanometres - that is one million times thinner than a human finger nail. The material is regarded...
An international team of scientists involving the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has unraveled the light-induced electron-localization dynamics in transition metals at the attosecond timescale. The team investigated for the first time the many-body electron dynamics in transition metals before thermalization sets in. Their work has now appeared in Nature Physics.
The researchers from ETH Zurich (Switzerland), the MPSD (Germany), the Center for Computational Sciences of University of Tsukuba (Japan) and the Center for...
