Siemens takes industrial production to the next level

Date: 10.11.2020Source: Siemens

Around SPS Connect, Siemens is hosting a special virtual event to present new products, services, and solutions for the Digital Enterprise portfolio, which companies in the manufacturing and process industry can use to react to rapidly changing market requirements and conditions. Siemens brings more intelligence and therefore greater flexibility to production – taking industry to the next level. This is achieved by combining automation and digitalisation solutions with cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, edge and cloud computing or additive manufacturing. Using this link sie.ag/2TIM1AO, interested parties can register for the ‘Digital Enterprise SPS Dialog‘ virtual event on November 26, 2020, enabling them to discover the topics in a virtual 3D showroom and join the dialog to extend their knowledge.

New products include a ready-to-use open Industrial Edge platform, new edge hardware, and a new edge application for drives. A new distributed drive system is also being launched. Further innovations this year include a solution for multi-vendor programming of robots in the TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) Portal, innovative Cloud Connect products for integrated data access, and new Connectivity and Remote Collaboration Services.

Using cloud and edge technologies, manufacturing processes can be digitalised, making operations more flexible and more efficient. With Siemens Industrial Edge – an open software platform for creating IIoT solutions at the machine level – more applications can be introduced in a shorter time on the shop floor, further increasing the productivity of machines and plants while reducing implementation and operating costs.

Siemens is now launching the Industrial Edge Management System, a central and company-wide scalable infrastructure for managing connected edge devices and apps. In combination with existing hardware and software products, this Industrial Edge V1.0 open platform provides users with a ready-to-use and seamless solution. There are also additions to the hardware for the Industrial Edge portfolio. The Simatic IPC227G industrial PC with the latest processor technology is available as a Nanobox and panel PC. Thanks to its excellent performance and numerous interfaces, it is the ideal platform for Industrial Edge and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications. For more visit siemens.com
