Next Step in Digital Transformation
With its Digital Enterprise, Siemens is taking the next step of the digital transformation – on the way to highly flexible modular production. Siemens presents numerous innovations for the discrete and process industries as well as for energy and building infrastructure. The integration of cutting-edge technologies such as edge and cloud computing, artificial intelligence or additive manufacturing into the portfolio offers users new opportunities to achieve more flexible and intelligent production. Communicative networking through Industrial 5G plays a key role.
This year’s product innovations include the Sitrans MS Multisensor, which is used primarily for the condition monitoring of mechanical plant components such as pumps, compressors, gears and valves. Through the AI-based analysis of sensor data such as vibrations and temperatures, important information can be generated for predictive maintenance. The user can access machine KPIs and status messages via mobile devices or cloud applications.
Siemens is also showcasing four applications for the Closed Loop Digital Twin. They can be used to exchange data in both directions between Teamcenter, Tecnomatix Plant Simulation, Amesim and MindSphere for the continuous improvement of the quality of physical models and simulations.
In the field of drive technology, a solution demonstrates how high-frequency data can be processed close to the machine in future. The connection of Sinamics frequency converters to an Edge device enables users of machines and applications to perform complex analysis of data that is already collected in the drive.
