Digitalization is transforming the glass industry just as it was once transformed by electrification and automation. In the glass sector, digitalization solutions all along the value chain are currently the decisive lever for better exploiting production options. The result is significant increases in productivity, making plant operators and equipment suppliers more efficient, more flexible, and faster.
Individualized, risk-based concepts for reliable protection
The growing networking of plants enables numerous new insights and optimization approaches in the glass industry. At the same time, however, the risk of cyberattacks in the networked, digital world is increasing.
Siemens Plant Security Services support you with a comprehensive protection concept that protects industrial facilities against all conceivable threats. Implementation involves three basic steps: Analysis of the actual situation, implementation of necessary measures and, finally, ongoing adaptation to changing threat situations.
A seamless integration of production planning and production engineering enables the optimization of discrete process steps. In conjunction with a plant simulation using the COMOS Walkinside 3D visualization software, the Mechatronic Concept Designer, SIMOTION easy project, and the TIA Portal, it is possible to implement continuous and extremely flexible production processes without buffers or queues while simultaneously increasing process quality and with an ideal connection of intralogistics.
Practical example: Optima Consumer GmbH
The real-time aggregation and evaluation of data made available from numerous sources using the XHQ software enables worldwide, cross-plant resource and performance management in the glass industry. Deviations from target values can be detected very early and promptly corrected. Unplanned maintenance is noticeably reduced and plant availability significantly increased.
