Welcome to Drinktec 2017

Discover the Digital Enterprise for the beverage industry

Under the motto „Discover the Digital Enterprise for the beverage industry“ Siemens were demonstrating how industrial enterprises of all sizes can benefit from the digital revolution – from the digital value chain in the engineering process through to the in-line integration of machines. Using examples taken from the dairy, brewery and soft drink sector, visitors to the Siemens booth were be able to experience at first hand how digitalization enhances flexibility and allows even customized, individual products to be mass-produced.

Our Highlights on the Drinktec fair

BRAUMAT – Brewing industry automation solution

Over 40 years BRAUMAT is a product specially adapted to the needs of the brewing industry. Its recipe system ensures reliable production processes and thereby product and production quality as well. BRAUMAT is represented worldwide in a variety of breweries, scalable from microbreweries to the largest breweries in the world. Discover our integrated brewery-wide automation – from incoming materials to the filled bottle – from the sensor to the laboratory system at Drinktec 2017.

Digital Twin for your existing plant

This year's Drinktec trade fair demonstrates how enterprises can simulate, test and optimize their products, production processes and systems in an entirely virtual environment, based on a "digital twin". In addition we can utilize the technology of our partner Bentley to combine visual and technical data in order to create the digital twin of an already existing plant. In this way the manufacturing and process industries can accelerate their pace of innovation and greatly increase their productivity, enabling them to redefine their business models. Machine and plant builders will also profit from these developments and be able to pass the benefits on to their customers.

Market-specific Solutions

Efficiency and productivity are crucial factors for the success of our customers. Engineering will also play a key role in the future in bringing the increasing complexity of plants and machinery under control. Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), the industrial automation system from Siemens, makes sure that all automation components work together efficiently, and it is a fundamental part of our Digital Enterprise Software Suite. On the Drinktec 2017 we show our complete software and hardware portfolio on our industry solution wall which realizes automation and digitalization within the soft drinks industry.
