Integrated Automation

Many manufacturers struggle with an aging, fragmented control environment comprised of components from multiple vendors with different programming languages. “Integration” is accomplished through custom code and painstaking manual analysis. Many manufacturers continue to replace obsolete products with legacy vendors’ “newer” versions, hesitating to change vendors for fear of downtime, re training, code conversion and other issues. Nevertheless, switching to a newer version will often involve all of these same risks.

Simplification, Standardization and Digitalization of PLC-based Automation

Undertaking an automation modernization strategy with Siemens does not require removal and replacement of your legacy infrastructure.


Siemens Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) is a single, integrated control environment, based on an open architecture that offers interoperability across your complete control system.


With our TIA platform, along with decades of automation expertise, we make automation modernization easy. A stepped/phased approach allows you to closely control productivity, training and support. Our no-charge code conversion services retain your existing code, structures and naming conventions, allowing familiarity from the start.


Siemens maintains cooperative relationships with all major papermaking and converting OEMs, enabling you to obtain the benefits of TIA via your normal engineering and procurement processes.
