Siemens is Driving Machine Tool Builders and Users Towards The Digital Factory
Siemens will present new innovations in machine tool automation technology
At EASTEC 2019, Siemens will present its popular Sinumerik CNC hardware and software solutions, offering dual tracks for the machine tool builder and end-user attendees from job shops and production departments of all types. Advancements in machine tool automation will be demonstrated for various CNC machines — from basic milling and turning applications to multi-axis machining centers and the fully automated, flexible work cells used throughout the manufacturing industry. In addition, Siemens will display its new Mindsphere “software as a service” concept, which enables machine tool users to gather, prioritize and access data in real-time, using edge technology.
Reflecting the company’s drive to the digital factory, a virtual experience for machine tool design and build functions will be presented to the OEMs, while end-users will experience how the machines used on their shop-floors will be operated, managed, programmed and maintained in the future. In combination with the advanced motion control technologies and PLM services offered by Siemens, the full process chain from CAD to CAM to virtual simulation to production and performance assessment will be on display.
Siemens offers the machine tool builder an entire portfolio of CNCs, plus the integration of robotic machining and solutions for additive, in tandem with the advanced automation scenarios of today’s manufacturing environment.
Likewise, Siemens has taken a major step on the road to digitalization with Mindsphere, which offers machine tool builders and end-users alike a variety of customizable software and application options for the control and maintenance of their operations.
Mindsphere is a “software as a service” concept in which Siemens offers a wide range of services for manufacturing companies on the path to Industry 4.0. Mindsphere is an open IIoT operating system, allowing a customized platform for recording and analyzing large volumes of plant-wide production data. A customer can interact with Siemens to devise a variety of MindApps for machine tool predictive maintenance services, energy data management and even resource optimization development.
Siemens Digital Factory (DF) offers a comprehensive portfolio of seamlessly integrated hardware, software and technology-based services in order to support manufacturing companies worldwide in enhancing the flexibility and efficiency of their manufacturing processes and reducing the time to market of their products.
