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: Cheers! Maxwell's electromagnetism extended to smaller scales

More than one hundred and fifty years have passed since the publication of James Clerk Maxwell's "A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field" (1865). What would our lives be without this publication?

It is difficult to imagine, as this treatise revolutionized our fundamental understanding of electric fields, magnetic fields, and light. The twenty original...

Im Focus: Highly charged ion paves the way towards new physics

In a joint experimental and theoretical work performed at the Heidelberg Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, an international team of physicists detected for the first time an orbital crossing in the highly charged ion Pr⁹⁺. Optical spectra were recorded employing an electron beam ion trap and analysed with the aid of atomic structure calculations. A proposed nHz-wide transition has been identified and its energy was determined with high precision. Theory predicts a very high sensitivity to new physics and extremely low susceptibility to external perturbations for this “clock line” making it a unique candidate for proposed precision studies.

Laser spectroscopy of neutral atoms and singly charged ions has reached astonishing precision by merit of a chain of technological advances during the past...

Im Focus: Ultrafast stimulated emission microscopy of single nanocrystals in Science

The ability to investigate the dynamics of single particle at the nano-scale and femtosecond level remained an unfathomed dream for years. It was not until the dawn of the 21st century that nanotechnology and femtoscience gradually merged together and the first ultrafast microscopy of individual quantum dots (QDs) and molecules was accomplished.

Ultrafast microscopy studies entirely rely on detecting nanoparticles or single molecules with luminescence techniques, which require efficient emitters to...

Im Focus: How to induce magnetism in graphene

Graphene, a two-dimensional structure made of carbon, is a material with excellent mechanical, electronic and optical properties. However, it did not seem suitable for magnetic applications. Together with international partners, Empa researchers have now succeeded in synthesizing a unique nanographene predicted in the 1970s, which conclusively demonstrates that carbon in very specific forms has magnetic properties that could permit future spintronic applications. The results have just been published in the renowned journal Nature Nanotechnology.

Depending on the shape and orientation of their edges, graphene nanostructures (also known as nanographenes) can have very different properties – for example,...
