Siemens brings it all together at Hillhead 2016

  • Siemens makes integration key to unlocking benefits for bulk materials handling operators

Intelligent, integrated and safety-focused equipment and services are at the heart of the Siemens offering for Hillhead 2016.

With a focus on the entire drive train and beyond, Siemens will be showing why its integrated drive systems, weighing, level and flow solutions bring significant benefits to the industry, from energy savings through more efficient motors and drives to improved data on system performance and optimising availability, reliability and throughput using digitised condition monitoring.  There will also be a focus on maximising safety and security – functions more essential than ever to bulk materials handling operators.

By helping improve the productivity, efficiency and reliability of industrial production, time to market can be considerably reduced along with time to profit.

Siemens industry knowledge is second to none in this important sector and the company is continuously developing its expertise to provide future-proof, customised solutions, backed up by global and local service support.  As an experienced partner to many operators in the industry, Siemens experts will be on the stand at Hillhead to demonstrate and discuss the world’s most comprehensive and consistent product range and system solutions in the field of drive technology and process systems.

In drive technologies, Siemens will be displaying its Simogear and SIP gear units, and in Large Drives, showing how converter-fed motors can help leverage energy cost savings of up to 70 per cent.  In process instrumentation a series of weighing, flow and level demonstrations will show the latest Siemens systems available.  The benefits of integrated drive and automation technology, including recent examples of how Siemens has helped leading operators like Hanson save energy, reduce carbon footprint, and achieve payback within two years will also be demonstrated.  Lifecycle management reports will be shown on the stand to show how to get the best out of equipment and systems.

Siemens Minerals Account Development Manager, Rob Thrower, said: “We value long-term co-operation with our customers, as through it we can demonstrate how the efficiencies and savings our integrated systems make impact on many more areas than just the drive train.  This is the stand to visit to see practical examples of future-oriented drive solutions in action.“
