New firmware adds new functions for Sinamics V90 servo converter

• Fast PTI mode comes with auto-tuning function
• New firmware adds Fast PTI mode for precise positioning at even higher speeds
• Firmware update opens up new applications for Sinamics V90

New functions are being added to the proven Sinamics V90 servo drive system with the V1.11 version of the Sinamics firmware. The Fast PTI mode is now available for the drive system, increasing Pulse Train Input (PTI) performance by 70 percent.

Siemens and EDAG cooperate in projects for the industrial application of additive manufacturing

• Improving engineering and production processes

Siemens is intensifying its cooperation with the EDAG Group as a leading global independent engineering company for the automotive industry, in order to further promote industrial applications of additive manufacturing (AM) and to make engineering and production processes more efficient. Based on many years of successful project-specific collaboration in factory and production planning, in the field of engineering the innovative "NextGenerationSpaceframe 2.0" project will be presented at the Hannover Messe from April 1 to 5, 2019 at the Siemens booth (Hall 9, Booth D35) as the clear result of this successful cooperation.

XHQ Operations Intelligence Software V6.0 – improved performance and end-user experience

• Simplified integration of engineering data
• Server virtualization support increases efficiency and performance
• New Edge functionality provides better and more secure access to remote data
• HTML5-based, new web browser client

Siemens launches the new release V 6.0 of their flagship XHQ Operations Intelligence with enhanced performance while increasing the overall usability at the same time. With the new version, users benefit from numerous enhancements such as edge functionality. With an end-to-end secured site integration and light weight installation, this provides easy and secure access to remote/distributed data from all production (operation) and enterprise levels.

Simple machine integration with OPC UA interface

• Data interface according to OMAC PackML
• First implementation of companion specification in a controller

Siemens has succeeded in implementing an OPC UA data interface in a Simatic S7-1500 controller according to a companion specification. The OMAC PackML (Packaging Machine Language) makes it easier for end customers and line integrators to integrate packaging machines and connect them to line or MES systems, thus simplifying the evaluation and control of individual machines.
