Siemens MSI’s repeat performance marks it as the Best Industrial Scale for the second year running!

For the second year in a row, the Siemens MSI conveyor belt scale has won the Weighing Review Readers’ Choice Award for Best Industrial Scale.  The MSI’s use of the parallelogram load cell allows high accuracy, easy installation and low maintenance. The parallelogram load cell removes horizontal forces caused by the belt being pulled across the scale, allowing the MSI to achieve accuracies up to 1/8% when used in a 3 idler configuration. This design eliminates the need for pivots, which are norm ...

SIESTORAGE - initial installation at Enel in Italy

Continuous Power Flow? Totally Integrated!

Walking from one end of Siemens’ 3,500-sqm exhibition area to the other at this year’s Hannover Messe one solution was prevalent across all areas, from Energy to Industry: Totally Integrated Power. It was a way to physically experience the comprehensive scope of Siemens’ end-to-end portfolio encompassing software and hardware products, systems and solutions for all voltage levels – from high-voltage in-feed, to low-voltage consumption, from grid access via industry application to home supply. Ba ...

Saving costs is an important factor in the wind energy business

Higher Cost Efficiency for Wind Energy

In an environmentally friendly generation mix, wind energy is now playing a major role the world over. A long way to come for a comparatively young technology. While developments to tap its full potential are still well under way, Siemens’ wind energy innovations showcased  at this year’s Hannover Messe have  one goal in common: To make the well-established renewable energy source more cost efficient. Siemens is aiming to reduce the costs of wind power. Different approaches will contribute to t ...

Digitalization is enhancing Sustainable Energy Production - ALICE is a self-optimization process that has been developed to teach wind turbines how to automatically and optimally adapt their operation to its local conditions

The Winds of Digital Change - How Digitalization is enhancing Sustainable Energy Generation

As in previous years, the vast majority of solutions being showcased at this year’s Hannover Messe are focused on industrial digitalization in line with that ubiquitous buzzword, Industrie 4.0. As a counterpoint to this prevailing wind, I’d like to use this post to take a look at how digitalization is also revolutionizing the way energy is generated – and more specifically, wind energy. Two innovations in particular have caught my eye this year at the Siemens booth in Hall 9, which show how digi ...

Weinhold’s Power Lines: Giving Form to Ideas

Selective Laser Melting for the Energy Business What is selective laser melting (SLM)? This innovative manufacturing process often reminds me of the “beamer” device in the TV series Star Trek: Information, given form, is translated into matter. A laser beam is applied to metal powder particles and welds them into threedimensional structures, layer by layer. Guided by a CAD blueprint, the substance rapidly hardens into a complex part. Compared to the more established 3-D plastic printing process ...
