Posted on 11 Jun 2015 by Jonny Williamson

This July, Siemens UK & Ireland is hitting the road with its Integrated Drive Systems (IDS) roadshow to demonstrate to UK manufacturers how IDS can be a one-stop solution to increase productivity, reliability and efficiency.

The mobile exhibition – applicable to all industries – features application-specific exhibits and live demos which illustrate the competitive advantage to be gained from implementing matched drive and automation components.

The tour launches on 2 July in Cambridge; finishing in Aberdeen on the 22 July.  On each day the roadshow will host three sessions in the morning and three in the afternoon.

These will focus on IDS in conjunction with conveyor technology, bulk material handling and pumps, fans and compressors. There will also be opportunities for more in-depth discussion around key issues such as IE3 & energy efficiency and integrated safety.

According to Siemens, IDS can deliver efficiencies and ensure optimal performance and safety across a number of technologies including vertical mills, pumps, fans and compressors and conveyor technology.

Jason Peel, head of IDS Strategy at Siemens UK & Ireland, commented: “The IDS tour focuses on the benefits of a systematic, three-pronged approach to integration – the core element of IDS.

“We will be showing how our comprehensive integration portfolio can deliver numerous benefits including faster commissioning, greater reliability, and reduced maintenance costs.

“The exhibition is designed to help those looking for new ways to deal with increasingly complex industrial challenges. At Siemens UK & Ireland we are dedicated to simplifying these challenges by delivering innovative solutions such as IDS.”

The roadshow will also provide advice and guidance on the services available to support IDS including financial assistance, preventative condition monitoring and training.
