Siemens showcase joint PLM and production systems solutions

Posted on 8 Oct 2009 by The Manufacturer

Siemens will exhibit its PLM software, production systems, and equipment at EMO Milano 2009, a trade fair held bi-annually for the world production of machine tools, systems, robots, and automation products.

The software covers 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 optimisation of the post processor and the CNC parameters, and extends to online and offline simulations for controlling and optimising the manufacturing process on the PC.

“Now more than ever manufacturers need tools to enhance productivity, competitiveness and profitability,” says Dr. Helmuth Ludwig, president, Siemens PLM Software. Siemens’ solutions, which connect the virtual and physical worlds, deliver the tools to enable right first time manufacturing, improved utilisation of equipment, and enhanced product quality.”
