Technology company Siemens announced an expanded portfolio for the machine tool industry. Specifically designed for the Indian market, Achim Peltz, CEO of Motion Control, Digital Industries, Siemens AG, explains that manufacturers across industries could “harness the enormous potential of production data for designing, realizing and optimizing operations to achieve scale and profitability.” “Our portfolio for the Machine Tool Industry enables flexible and sustainable action both in the construction of machines and in their application”, he adds.
The new services that will now be provided include SINUMERIK One – the digital native CNC, an integrated software and automation solutions under one roof for industrial use of Additive Manufacturing as well as Siemens Xcelerator for digital transformation.
SINUMERIK One enables to create and work with digital twins of machine tools. With its integrated SIMATIC S7-1500F PLC, it offers up to 10 times faster PLC cycle times. This helps SINUMERIK One to be fully integrated into the TIA Portal engineering framework, enabling standardization of all engineering tasks for machine builders and users. Integrated functions like virtual commissioning and realistic process simulation opens up new possibilities for machine manufacturers & users alike. This significantly reduces the product development phase, time-to-market & even production cycle times. Today over 70% of Indian OEMs have already adopted SINUMERIK One to accelerate their digital transformation journey, Siemens says.
Its AM software platform on the other hand, enables the creation, manufacturing and use of additive applications, including high-volume production which covers the entire end-to-end value chain, from industrial AM users as well as AM machine builders.
Lastly, using the Siemens Xcelerator marketplace, companies in areas such as machine building, fabricated metals, aerospace, vehicle manufacturing, electronics, power, energy manufacturing and medical equipment, could develop applications using technologies like Protect MyMachine, Analyze MyWorkpiece and others.
Various MindSphere applications like Manage MyMachines and Analyze MyPerformance/OEE are also available on the marketplace. They provide intelligent resource management across the shopfloor. The market place has additional solutions that help in optimizing the process workflows in shopfloor, manage tools efficiently and increase productivity.
