Covid-19

Rethink in challenging times

No question - these are challenging times. Due to the COVID-19 crisis we are facing a very unknown situation and must deal with many restrictions, shutdowns or changed demand. But these are also times where we have the chance to rethink our strategies and concepts or the ways we are working together. Take the current situation as an opportunity to rethink actual but also tomorrow's needs to strengthen your business.

You don´t have access to your plant and need to work remotely?

Reliable networks, industrial security and tools for monitoring and global collaboration ensure a secure remote access and remote services

Stable operations of IT infrastructure as well as  powerful and future-proof networks are the core of data communication. They permit a seamless exchange of data both horizontally and vertically.

Efficient access to plants, machines, and mobile applications with Industrial Remote Communication.

Remote services for process automation and instrumentation: Remote assisted collaboration (e.g. transmission of audio / video) or remote desktop sharing for expert support 

Protect your plant, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats by implementing - and continuously maintaining – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. 

Simple, efficient management of global project teams, including external sub-suppliers, across all disciplines. 

Especially in the current situation, many manufacturing companies have to deal with an emergency strategy: How can the safeguarding of core operations and the monitoring of key plant data and equipment be ensured while maintaining high performance of the overall plant? 

Monitoring, management and optimization of analyzers with a  comprehensive reporting module.

You face an unexpected increasing demand? 

Make your plant more flexible and use tools to save time

The automation standard Module Type Package (MTP) enables process and package units to be inserted or exchanged flexibly and quickly in production.

To enable future-proof solutions also for existing plants, industrial communication networks must be flexible, scalable, and more and more real-time capable.

With SIMIT you can reduce your commissioning time and significantly shorten the time-to-market.

Simulation enables virtual commissioning of the automation as well as operator training without direct access to the machine or plant.

Ensure constant power supply ,  allow opimized monitoring and end-to-end diagnostics and incorporate 24V supply concepts directly into SIMATIC PCS 7

Streamline pharmaceutical R&D processes, e.g. via the right-first-time-testing. Avoid faulty batches in the production of drugs so that they are within the required specifications at the first attempt with SIMATIC SIPAT.

Your plant is shut down?

This is the time to check your plant and implement cost saving measures.

Now is the right time to take a step back and identify deficits, bring them into perspective with your business objectives, and define the right next steps in the digital transformation of your company with the help of digitalization workshops. 

Data plays an increasingly important role in process industries as a lever to increase process efficiency, reduce unplanned downtimes and optimize maintenance and service. The key to use the power of you data is the analytics of your data.

Leverage the hidden potential in your engineering, process, diagnostic and event data with oureasy-to-implement industrial applications and digital services to ensure uptime, improve processes and manage operations.

Stable operations of IT infrastructure as well as  powerful and future-proof networks are the core of data communication. They permit a seamless exchange of data both horizontally and vertically.

With SIMIT, a clever combination for the testing and operator training of automation projects, products can be brought to the market faster while the same level of quality can be maintained.

Gain productivity with higher data transparency and more integrated systems and solutions

The integrated plant management software COMOS offers custom solutions for brownfield enablement. Using one consistent information source – like the kind that a central platform like COMOS offers – plants can be optimized to operate much more efficiently and older plants can be reliably modernized.

Especially in the current situation, many manufacturing companies have to deal with an emergency strategy: How can the safeguarding of core operations and the monitoring of key plant data and equipment be ensured while maintaining high performance of the overall plant? 

For higher productivity and efficiency in production,  powerful, integrated, and more and more real-time capable industrial  communications networks are required.

SITOP power supplies guarantee the availability of plants, preventing outages with uninterruptible DC power supplies and preventing overloads and short-circuits in the control circuit using add-on modules.

Our intelligent instruments are designed for seamless interplay with the world of industrial automation and control systems – enabling greater process transparency and smarter decisions for your business.

Process analytics makes a crucial contribution to significant process and quality optimization and enables environmentally conscious production that conserves resources in numerous applications.

Thanks to its flexibility, the modular gas analyzer SIPROCESS GA700 can quickly be adapted to customer needs that change at short notice. With the concept of Plug&Measure, module replacement or retrofitting can be done very easily and quickly.

In the fight against the coronavirus, pharmaceutical companies around the world try to win the race against time to end the pandemic. We’re here to support you. Let’s stand together against COVID-19
