EuroBLECH 2016

Following the motto "The Next Generation of Press Shops", the EuroBLECH trade show took place in Hanover in October 2016.

Digitalization and the resulting changes in the area of production are successively gaining importance in the field of metal processing. Besides a high degree of flexibility and plant availability, one of the central subjects focuses on how to further increase productivity on the basis of smart interlinking of simulation and real plant. 


The trade show presentation of Siemens focused on solutions for the digitalized press shop.


Press Line Simulation, the intelligent simulation tool for increased productivity in the digitalized press shop was an important highlight. Continue to benefit from high-performance motion control applications for your press and handling systems as well as from efficient engineering with the TIA Portal.

Our Highlights

Siemens Lösungen für Pressenlinien

The Next Generation of Press Shop – Siemens Press Line Solutions

An integrated approach for the adjustment of transfer systems to the highly flexible motion control of servo presses by means of simulation, as well as their intelligent synchronization, is showcased.

The model of a press line is calculated during the runtime by the SIMOTION controller and is shown live within a 3D room, which can be experienced through virtual reality. The connection with Press Line Simulation for curve optimization rounds off the digitalization example.

Press Line Simulation

Press Line Simulation – the Key to Press Shop Digitalization

The software solution by Siemens represents a central module for the press shop of the future.

In addition to process and productivity optimization, Press Line Simulation simulates the optimum motion control of a servo press implemented in SIMOTION. The user advantages are obvious: A digital twin plant can be created with minimal expenditures.


The Press Safety Library within TIA Portal

With TIA Portal V14, the first certified press safety library for SIMATIC S7-1500F controllers developed by Siemens is available.

The user benefits from the tried-and-tested integrated safety concept, which meets the high requirements of press shop applications. Besides minimized engineering time and program complexity, a further user advantage lies in the solution's certification by the Employer's Liability Insurance Association.

Intelligent Solutions for HydraulicSystems

The SIMATIC S7-1500 controller generation is ideally suited for the automation of complex hydraulic applications.The hydraulic tool box developed by Siemens in the TIA Portal enables the user to realize individual concepts on the basis of modularly applicable function blocks. As a result, engineering expenditures are significantly reduced.

The innovative servo pump solution by Siemens, which offers maximum energy efficiency and flexibility in interaction with the SINAMICS S120 drive system, represents an example. 

Solutions for metal forming

The comprehensive portfolio for sheet metal processing

Siemens provides a unique and comprehensive range of products for metal forming using servo, large and universal presses, as well as for press safety and simulation.
