Siemens’ Digital Machine Shop Showcase A Big Hit at IMTS 2016

By Stephanie Aldrete

The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago was a tremendous success this year for Siemens.The Digital Machine Shop Showcase was one of the key features of the exhibit and was well received by hundreds of visitors. The Digital Machine Shop Showcase combines physical equipment, customer use cases and Siemens hardware and software solutions to put all the pieces together and clearly define a digital machine shop.

If you are not familiar with the digital machine shop, it is smart, flexible and connected. At its heart is a digital twin – a digital twin of the product, production system and its performance. And, a digital thread is woven through every step of the manufacturing process and closes the loop between the virtual and real worlds of production. 

A digital machine shop transforms business by providing unique and powerful advantages:

  • It’s an adaptive system that continuously learns and improves.

  • It’s a data-driven environment that connects every aspect of the manufacturing operation – from idea to production.

  • It’s a powerful system that drives revolutionary technologies like additive manufacturing, advanced robots, and automation equipment.
