Siemens will exhibit an exclusive combination of PLM software and production systems and equipment at EMO Milano 2009. The combined solution will be presented by Siemens PLM Software and Siemens Drive Technologies Division. EMO, a trade fair held once every two years for the world production of machine tools, systems, robots and automation products, will be held from Oct. 5 10 in Milan, Italy.
The software portfolio of the Siemens PLM Software presentation at this year's EMO focuses on the workpiece-oriented process chain between the initial idea for the product and the finished piece. The software fully covers the requirements for sophisticated PLM tasks across a range of industries, beginning with product development using CAD/CAM systems and the generation of programs for parts via optimization of the post processor and the CNC parameters, and extends to online and offline simulations for controlling and optimizing the manufacturing process on the PC.
Siemens PLM Software and Siemens Drive Technologies are leading the way by bringing the virtual and the physical worlds together to provide significant competitive time-to-market and productivity advantage to our customers the machine tool builders and the machine end users, said Dr. Helmuth Ludwig, president, Siemens PLM Software. Now more than ever, manufacturers across all industries need tools to enhance productivity, competitiveness and profitability, and Siemens solutions, which connect the virtual and physical worlds, deliver the tools to enable right the first-time manufacturing, improved utilization of equipment and enhanced product quality.
Siemens PLM Software will exhibit its Virtual Machine technology, a complete one-to-one copy of a machine tool on a PC with full virtual Sinumerik® controller functions and machine tool simulation that will provide added value to both the end-user and the machine tool builder. This new technology will maximize machine tool productivity by eliminating the need to use the physical machine for non-production tasks. The Virtual Machine delivers the next generation of shop floor NC programming validation and off-machine set-up preparation and checking which reduces the errors and setup time while transforming the way in which machine tools are built and utilized.
