Digital Enterprise – The next step for metal forming
The metal forming industry continuously faces new challenges. There are new trends in machine building, new requirements from producers and machine buyers but also regulatory changes. Therefore, it becomes increasingly crucial to develop future-proof machine concepts, business models and services in a digitalized and networked industry - both for machine builders and for plant operators.
With the slogan „Digital Enterprise – The next step for metal forming“ we show you how Siemens can be part of your success in the age of digital change.
Digital model of the transfer press
Experience the interaction of a transfer with a servo press and roll feeding in digital form. Optimally coordinated and easily calculated in one step. Virtually commission the digital transfer press with the help of the Mechatronics Concept Designer (MCD) and avoid an increased fault rate on the real machine by simulating production in advance.
Another innovation at the EuroBLECH 2021 will be the implementation of distributed synchronous operation in TIA Portal V16 on the digital transfer press.
Press line simulation (PLS) – The key to digitalization the press shop
The PLS simulation software from Siemens was one of the central building blocks for the press shop of the future. Thanks to PLS, both the motion control and the interaction of press, transfer and feed system could be analyzed and optimized. The user benefit was clear: The digital mapping of the complete system enables precise throughput planning.
Intelligent solutions for hydraulic systems
Also discover SimaHydTO, the latest version of the hydraulic application based on the integrated technology object. The simplicity of the integrated TO module enables even more flexible applications, such as the curve synchronization of hydraulic cylinders.
Start the future of visualization with us! At our booth you can see the latest Siemens hardware in operation. With the new SIMATIC HMI Unified Comfort Panels and the SIMATIC IPCs, you can make optimum use of the performance capability of WinCC Unified. Visualization opens up new possibilities that can be implemented easily and efficiently with TIA Portal.
With SIMATIC WinCC Unified you can easily scale all your applications, from the operator panel directly on the machine all the way to a complex SCADA solution. Due to the integrated Edge functionality, WinCC Unified runs at any time and in different environments.
The SIMATIC HMI Unified Comfort Panels with their capacitive multi-touch displays offer you all the options for innovative operating concepts. Thanks to their integrated Edge functionality, apps can be installed and scaling is simplified through vector-based visualization.
Also at the fair: all in just one compact controller. The SIMATIC Drive Controller combines the motion control functions of the technology CPUs with a versatile drive system and the integrated safety system.
Experience the next step in digitalization live:
Use an app to record load curves from the C-frame servo press and thereby you not only carry out a target/actual comparison, but also draw conclusions about the design of the different profiles in production.
With Industrial Edge, you bring IT to manufacturing – simply, flexibly and securely. At the EuroBLECH 2021 we will show you how you can acquire and process data from the motion controller directly and securely at the machine, without latency, with your software, and in a central, open ecosystem.
You can also look forward to even more functionality of our Digital Twin with NX MCD, SIMIT and PLCSim Advanced, as well as to our innovative HMI.
Proven quality and performance in a new guise: The specially developed optimization algorithm (OACamGen) is now available not only on SIMOTION, but also in the SIMATIC S7-1500 and with Industrial Edge.
Design the motion control of your servo press in different topologies and react flexibly to customer requirements with the extended Siemens automation portfolio for your servo press.
At the EuroBLECH 2021, we will present for the first time our automation solution for servo presses on the SIMATIC S7-1500, including motion control, cyclic cam generation, and safety in one controller.
The Safety program is implemented according to ISO16092 and additional, pre-certified functions regarding all aspects of the brake test can be experienced live and discussed with experts.
