Siemens PLM is opening up the doors to its new factory automation demonstration suite in Manchester for a series of workshops over the coming months, as it looks to promote its tools for enabling a ‘Digital Twin’ for machinery manufacturers.
Siemens’ Virtual Commissioning technology looks to bring machine commissioning tests earlier into the design and development phase, allowing for what-if scenarios to be tested with no risks on a Digital Twin, reducing the engineering error quota and validating the security of the design – before the real machine even exists.
“The academies are a new initiative being launched by Siemens PLM to bring together diverse machinery builders in a collaborative environment to discuss the impact of digitalisation and automation,” said a spokesperson.
“We will discuss opportunities that may be realised from new technologies relating to design, build and operation of machinery. We will explore a wide range of topics with time allocated to openly discuss areas that are important to you, and to share your ideas.”
The events all begin at 10am (and include lunch), and take place on the following dates:
