Hannover Messe 2018

Hannover Messe 2018, April 23 – 27, 2018

Hall 9, Booth D35

Experience Industrie 4.0 in practice

Digital Enterprise – Implement now!

The digital transformation of the producing economy is gaining momentum. Companies from a wide variety of industries are already unlocking this potential – they are using end-to-end digitalization to create a lasting competitive edge by reducing the time to market and increasing flexibility, efficiency, and quality. It enables new opportunities for value creation, innovative business models, and trendsetting forms of cooperation.

 

The technical prerequisites for the implementation of Industrie 4.0 are readily available with the Siemens Digital Enterprise: the connection of the virtual and the real world of production along the entire value chain based on profound industry knowledge and unique expertise in the fields of electrification, automation, and digitalization. Now is the time to take advantage of these opportunities and pave the way into a successful future.

Meet the Digital Twins at Hannover Messe Hall 9

Digital Twins – detailed, virtual representations of products, plants and machinery – help you organize your processes and production activities more flexibly and more efficiently. Experience the successful digital transformation taking place in various industries at this year’s Hannover Messe under the motto, “Digital Enterprise – implement now.”

Highlight Showcases

Bringing the Digital Twins to life.

The Digital Twin helps the aerospace industry soar

To cope with the high demand, the aerospace industry must increase its productivity by using higher levels of automation as well as end-to-end integration of digital tools and workflows.

Increasingly versatile model variations can be built efficiently in small quantities thanks to greater flexibility.

 

With the Digital Enterprise Suite – our unique solutions portfolio for the manufacturing industry – and the most comprehensive Digital Twin, this is already possible today for companies of all sizes.

 

More about digitalization in aerospace industry

Digital Twins in the chemical industry

Shorter times to market, higher data quality and plant transparency, real-time documentation updates: Thanks to end-to-end digitalization, companies in the process industry can sustainably increase their efficiency and productivity in the engineering phase as well as during operation.

 

We offer the necessary solution portfolio of integrated hardware and software. We demonstrate this using the chemical industry as an example, which benefits from features such as modular plant engineering and paperless manufacturing.

Digital Twins builds cars – regardless of the drive concept

Momentum is continuing to grow in the automotive industry. Manufacturers have to efficiently manage the growing demand for electric vehicles as well as for cars with increasingly individual design options that still use conventional drives.

This is made possible by a unique portfolio consisting of our worldwide leading automation solutions and our Digital Enterprise Suite, our innovative software offering for the digital transformation.

 

We will demonstrate this at Hannover Messe 2018 using specific examples.

When Digital Twins brew beer

Big brewing companies and small craft beer breweries always need to deliver the highest quality, regardless of how complex the brewing process might be.

It’s a good thing that there are Digital Twins that can be used to realistically simulate all the processes – from the recipe to filling – true to detail, in a completely digital environment.

 

This enables breweries of all sizes to test and optimize their processes without risk until they are able to produce the actual beverage efficiently, flexibly, and with the highest quality.

Digital Twins reduce time to market

The short lifecycles of electronic products also lead to production cycles that are very short. Meeting the tight scheduling demands of electronics companies is forcing manufacturers and machine builders to shorten the commissioning phases of new machinery and production lines.

 

We're showcasing how machine builders and manufacturers can dramatically cut commissioning times by using our automation and digitalization solutions. Production can thus begin sooner and the time to market can be reduced.

 

Go to machinery & plant construction

Digital twins help to industrialize additive manufacturing

When used in industry, additive manufacturing must meet stringent requirements governing quality, stability, reproducibility, precision, and safety. At the Hannover Messe 2018, we're demonstrating that this is already possible today.

 

Siemens is the only provider capable of seamlessly integrating additive manufacturing across the entire value chain, from design to services. We thereby enable our customers to fabricate products faster and at lower cost, and to develop innovative designs.

 

More about additive manufacturing

A Digital Twin accelerates the development process of machine tools

Machine operators want greater transparency in production processes, integrated data management, and networked machines. More efficient development, maximum production quality, and significant productivity increases are among the benefits offered by consistent digitalization along the entire value chain.

 

With our CNC Shopfloor Management Software, which offers digitalization solutions for the manufacture and operation of machine tools, our customers are already optimizing their entire production process.

 

Digitalization of machine tools

Greater transparency for sustainable and flexible paper production

The fiber industry is undergoing a fundamental change, moving toward new products and new resources. The demand for sustainable packaging and personal hygiene products is growing while, at the same time, more and more companies are relying on the integration of renewable energy sources and biomass materials instead of on petrochemicals.

 

We will show how well the production of new fiber products from renewable resources can already be optimized using our SIPAPER portfolio of hardware and software.

Digital Twins support oil and gas production

The oil and gas industry is looking for new solutions to improve its performance and efficiency and thereby reduce production costs. Digitalization provides the answers – with the help of data-driven solutions that make it possible, for example, to access the facility from virtually anywhere in the world, that offer decision-making assistance for operators during the process, and that even intelligently support the use of assets.

 

We offer the comprehensive digitalization portfolio necessary to make this possible.

Digital Twins pave the way for greater energy transparency

The digitalization of industry is inconceivable without a reliable power supply. We will present the benefits offered by the seamless interaction of reliable and safe power supply solutions, communications-capable measuring devices, and sophisticated analysis methods.

 

This approach creates the energy transparency required for optimal energy management, which is an increasingly important factor for competitiveness.
