Systematic leveraging of optimization potential in the tobacco industry

02.11.2011
At this year’s manufactured tobacco products trade fair TabExpo, due to be held in Prague from 15 to 18 November, Siemens will be showcasing its comprehensive portfolio for optimizing the product and production life cycle in the tobacco industry.

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.

Im Focus: Energy-saving new LED phosphor

The human eye is particularly sensitive to green, but less sensitive to blue and red. Chemists led by Hubert Huppertz at the University of Innsbruck have now developed a new red phosphor whose light is well perceived by the eye. This increases the light yield of white LEDs by around one sixth, which can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting systems.

Light emitting diodes or LEDs are only able to produce light of a certain colour. However, white light can be created using different colour mixing processes.

Im Focus: Quantum gas turns supersolid

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.

Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...

Im Focus: Explosion on Jupiter-sized star 10 times more powerful than ever seen on our sun

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter

  • Coolest and smallest star to produce a superflare found
  • Star is a tenth of the radius of our Sun
  • Researchers led by University of Warwick could only see...

Im Focus: Quantum simulation more stable than expected

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.

Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...

Im Focus: Largest, fastest array of microscopic 'traffic cops' for optical communications

The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...
