The Battery Show Europe 2018

May 15 – 17, 2018, Hanover | Booth 280

Siemens at The Battery Show Europe in Hanover

How to increase efficiency in the production of battery cells, modules and packs over the long term? In Hanover we demonstrated to you as battery manufacture or machine builder how we and our portfolio support this need. Our unique portfolio for digital transformation, the Digital Enterprise Suite, offers an integrated portfolio of software-based systems and automation technologies. The aim is a holistic approach to optimize the entire value chain.


As the market leader for automation and drive technology, Siemens offers battery manufacturers and machine builders a comprehensive portfolio for the efficient production of batteries.


Do you want to produce even faster, more flexibly, more efficiently, and achieve a higher quality? Take advantage of the opportunities of digitalization and secure competitive advantages – With Siemens you will benefit from experience and competencies that range along the entire value added chain, from production planning, commissioning and production all the way to services.


Learn how you can benefit from the integration and digitalization of the entire value added chain!


Our highlight topics

Plant Simulation – solution for line and plant optimization

We showed production planning with Tecnomatix Plant Simulation and pave the way for the detailed simulation of production lines before they’re built. Plant Simulation enables the virtual planning of the following characteristics and process dependencies of battery production: energy flow and consumption analyses, material flow, logistics and business processes of battery manufacturing, what-if scenarios and optimization, bottleneck analyses. At the show, you could have a look at the material flow simulation of a real cell manufacturing line.

Intelligent machine solutions from the toolbox

The Battery Toolbox provides a library with standardized and ready-made converting and handling applications for coating and assembly tasks – simply integrate and adapt.

We presented the new application for prismatic winding. Find out how productivity of battery cell production can be increased by a continuous process.

Virtual Commissioning with the digital Twin of the machine

With Virtual Commissioning, you can simulate and validate the functions of your machines, including the validation of the PLC code, even before the machine goes into operation. Purely virtual. This reduces the time and effort associated with actual commissioning and reduces the risks.

We showed our “software-in-the loop solution” with TIA Portal and PLCSim Advanced for the simulation of the automation part and NX Mechatronics Concept Designer for the virtual machine model.

SIMATIC Energy Management Software

If you’re seeking to lower your energy costs, increase your competitiveness and comply with statutory requirements, you know that consistent, end-to-end energy management is essential for industrial production. To be able to make the right decisions at the right time, you have to keep a constant eye on energy consumption throughout your entire company.

Reliable Battery pack and module production solution

Cost-effective, repeatable and safe manufacturing processes will ensure the high reliability of battery pack and module production.

At the design step, Battery Simulation Module (BSM) enables you to calculate the batteries performance within the thermal environment and of the heat generation due electrical loading.

In addition, through one solution for the whole plant - Manufacturing Operation Management System (MOM), you can maximize the plant transparency and productivity.
