Siemens solutions for intralogistics sector
Siemens will be showcasing digitalisation, automation and drive solutions for logistics processes at Logimat, the international trade fair for intralogistics solutions.
Businesses are therefore able to extend the digitalisation process at any point along the value chain of an intralogistics system on a step-by-step basis and optimise the individual process steps, moving from the machine and system concept, through engineering and commissioning, to actual operation and service. This holistic approach from Siemens makes it the only company in the intralogistics sector which is capable of consistently mapping the actual machine builderâ€™s and operatorâ€™s process chain in the virtual environment.
The Plant Simulation and Process Simulate software allow operators and machine builders to optimise individual machine components right through to complete lines. Various solution scenarios can be simulated, visualised, and analysed in advance allowing the demands on new systems to be defined, and potential bottlenecks to be identified. Machine builders can produce entire digital mechatronic concepts using NX Mechatronic Concept Designer â€“ from mechanics, via electrics, to automation.
Automation Designer is available to create an integrated engineering solution for the electrical and automation systems in digital plants. By automatically generating PLC code for the TIA Portal and transferring this into PLCSim Advanced, the S7 controller can be put into virtual operation which significantly reduces the cost of the subsequent physical commissioning.
