Speeding up the design process in the field of Industrial Automation

Today, mass consumption leads to new trends in terms of production. In order to meet production requirements (such as quality, safety, throughput and costs) processes must be automated. Process automation is a branch in the automation world that deals with continuous processes and therefore, with continuous process values like temperature, pressure or flow, compared to factory [...]

Wanna save some energy?

In the high-speed rollercoaster of automotive engineering today, one thing is about as certain as taxes: energy efficiency will remain a top priority for all OEMs venturing to stay in the race. No matter whether they develop fuel-based cars, electrically powered ones, or some kind of combination of both.  The math is simple in this respect: fuel [...]



Be the fittest for the electrification race

The global automotive and transportation industry is now embracing vehicle electrification. The latest announcement of Volkswagen to electrify all 12 brands by 2030 just confirmed this movement and set the pace. Pledging to have at least one electric version out of all 300 models is ambitious. Why? Technically speaking, this is something highly achievable – [...]



Improving the energy consumption of a press brake

Lionel Broglia, Business Development Manager for the system simulation product line at Siemens PLM Software, describes step-by-step how the “green” design functionalities of Simcenter Amesim can lead to over 20% energy consumption reduction for a press brake. In a few mouse clicks, the main energy losses of a hydraulic circuit of a press brake are [...]



Tackling vehicle electrification engineering challenges with Simcenter Amesim

Alberto Soto, Simcenter Amesim software product development engineer explains how to tackle vehicle electrification engineering challenges with Simcenter Amesim. The power consumed by a vehicle’s electrical systems has increased dramatically over the past few years, due mostly to comfort and security equipment multiplication. The content of the network itself has also increased, especially for electrified [...]



Simcenter Amesim – Optimizing industrial machinery functional performance

Developing industrial machineries such as packaging, bottle filling, metal forming or textile machinery, requires finding the best compromise between various attributes. Productivity, to reduce the cost of production. Accuracy, to limit reject rate. Reliability, to maximize the production time and efficiency to reduce the cost of the energy and eventually comply with local environmental regulations. [...]
