Digitalization in manufacturing

Whether you want to know more about the quality of your manufacturing process, the transparency and efficiency of your machine tools and how to get more useful information out of them, or to see an example of good practices, these videos will help you learn more from experts about Siemens software solutions.

    

Four areas to drive productivity

Master complexities in production – and reap the benefits

With digitalization: the possibilities for improved productivity, reduced costs and increased quality are limitless. Discover how you can optimize your manufacturing over four concrete areas – including for your installed base.

Start optimizing – from anywhere

Amp up your ability to prepare for and execute jobs with Siemens solutions designed to help you create, manage and optimize your NC programs and tools. 

  • With Siemens’ SinuTrain and VNCK: you can create and check NC programs directly from your desk without needing to interrupt production. VNCK even lets you run a simulation of your NC program on a 3D digital twin of your machines in a CAM environment – reducing the risk of real damage caused by real  machine crashes. This eliminates the need for costly test pieces and lets you start producing from the very first part. 
  • After checking your NC program, you can take it safely from the office to the machine with Manage MyPrograms: a program management solution which reduces the chance of mix-ups, unauthorized changes, crashes, and viruses spread by USB storage devices. 
  • And finally, get ready for production with Manage MyTools: a tool management system which provides you with a complete overview of your tool stock and data – saving you money in the long run.

Produce more – in less time

Face the pressures of globally competitive production with software solutions which will give you a clear overview of your plants – and put you firmly in control of your manufacturing processes and output. 

 

With Siemens, you can choose the advantages of a cloud-based solution or local data aggregation. 

 

The cloud-based MindSphere Analyze MyPerformance /OEE-Monitor solution is a powerful tool offering you complete transparency of your OEE performance - no matter where you are. Or if you need something that operates on a local level: Analyze MyPerformance is a factory-wide performance analysis software that lets you analyze current machine statuses and set your own KPIs. 

 

With these two solutions: you will be able to easily access data and know what your machines are doing – no matter where you are – for faster, more efficient and more flexible production. 

 

Say goodbye to downtime

With the correct insights, you can look ahead to the future and dramatically improve machine availability.

 

  • Offering such insights is Manage MyMachinesa cloud-based solution that lets you improve machine productivity and efficiency with relevant machine data and an overview of machine status and history.
  • Manage MyMachines /Remote grants you access to your machine tools remotely, from around the world. Comprehensive fault diagnostics and corrective measures are immediately available in order to trace root causes of any problem.
  • Siemens’ Analyze MyCondition lets you minimize downtime caused by planned/unplanned maintenance at a local level. Critical machine components are continuously monitored and trends are visualized. So that you can predict machine breakdowns even before they happen.

Turbo-charge your machining

Improving your machinery requires a high amount of data to be processed – something that can be time-consuming and costly.

 

With SINUMERIK Edge, you can close the gap between the Cloud and your plant. You pre-process all data locally – only essential data is sent to the Cloud for analyzing when required. The results can be viewed directly on your computer no matter where you are.

 

With Analyze MyWorkpiece /Toolpath, you can determine the quality of your NC code and easily analyze root causes of quality problems – for example, if the problem is caused by the CAM system or the machine itself – even before the actual part is manufactured on the machine.

 

And with Siemens’ Adaptive Control and Monitoring solution, you can automatically detect load to increase or decrease the machining velocity. Thus significantly reducing machine cycle times and increasing the lifespan of your tools.

Digital enterprise

Digitalization on the shopfloor – a holistic approach

Siemens’ complete portfolio of CNC Shopfloor Management Software covers the entire value chain from product design to production execution and services. What you gain from this holistic approach is speed, flexibility, efficiency and quality in production.
 

Completing this holistic approach to factory digitalization is an ecosystem that includes MindSphere, a Cloud-based IoT operating system, Team Centre, a platform for digital collaboration, as well as other third party applications.
