• 'Siemens Chemical Day 2020' held in Nanjing
• Comprehensively displayed Digital Enterprise solutions for chemical industry
Siemens fully showcased its products and solutions for the digital transformation of the chemical industry on 'Siemens Chemical Day 2020' held in Nanjing, to help chemical enterprises seek new possibilities on the road of improving quality, reducing costs, increasing efficiency and greener development. As Siemens' annual gathering targeting chemical industry, the event themed 'Digital Enterprises - Thinking Process Industry Further' focused on solving pain points and difficulties of China's chemical industry during its digital transformation, and explored how to speed up digital transformation through building digital enterprises with over 300 industrial experts and partners onsite.
'Digital transformation has become an optimal way for chemical enterprises to cope with challenges from safety, environmental protection and efficiency, and to improve competitiveness in the complicated and changing market environment. With our Digital Enterprise portfolio covering the entire lifecycle of digital transformation and advanced Digital Twin technology, Siemens is capable of providing digital solutions from Integrated Engineering to Integrated Operation for China's chemical enterprises to drive continuous optimization of process and efficiency, and help them achieve tangible improvement in the practice of digital transformation,' said Wang Haibin, Executive Vice President of Siemens Ltd. China, and General Manager of Digital Industries, Siemens Greater China.
The high complexity of the digital transformation for industrial enterprises means that professional consulting services are needed to start digital transformation with customized solutions. Siemens digital consulting team formed digital standards and consulting methods based on rich technical expertise and experience in the chemical industry. According to the 'five steps' strategy of unified ideology, standards benchmarking, demands analysis, feasibility analysis and path definition, Siemens can help customers develop tailormade and feasible digital transformation implementation roadmap. So far, Siemens has helped dozens of process enterprises in China complete top strategy planning and implementation of building digital factory.
In addition, Siemens can provide digital solutions from Integrated Engineering to Integrated Operations & Services build around Digital Twin for chemical enterprises to speed up digital transformation. For example, Siemens's COMOS PlantSight, developed for process industry, can provide extensive, seamless and integrated digital environment for data of different sources and types, and create real-time Digital Twin for factories, thereby helping customers efficiently manage data of factory and equipment within the entire lifecycle. Meanwhile, the software supports real-time presentation of plant status to improve equipment availability and performance and reduce operation and maintenance cost.
At this event, Siemens also showcased its first web-based process control system SIMATIC PCS neo. Its open and flexible architecture integrates MTP (module type package) independent of equipment suppliers and processes, which can support customers to achieve module production and promote process industry to head towards module development. In addition, through SAL (signal abstraction layer) initiated by SIMATIC PCS neo, DCS system programming configuration can be run in parallel with a complete set of system hardware so as to greatly improve the flexibility and efficiency of automation system. 'SIMATIC PCS neo is a control system for the future. Web-based programming and configuration enables global cooperation in engineering and operation of users. Meanwhile, its open architecture and integrated cyber security function can bring more possibilities for the digital transformation of our customers,' said Yao Jun, Vice President of Digital Industries, Siemens Ltd., China, and General Manager of Process Automation Division.
Strong industrial communication network is an indispensable prerequisite for digital transformation of enterprises. Through the digital network management platform to integrate the various devices in the network, build a unified three-dimensional industrial communication network defense line together. As the latest network device management software of Siemens, SINEC NMS can diagnose, analyze and manage the entire industrial control network 24 hours a day. At the same time, it can uniformly view and set the safety options of the equipment, and display the status of the entire network system of the plant at any time as needed. SINEC NMS is able to integrate all the components in the network, including I/O devices, and construct three-dimensional cyber security network, thereby solving cyber security risks facing enterprises during digital transformation.
Siemens also showcased several APP developed for specific scenarios of process industry including Valve Monitoring, Equipment Predictive Analytics, Process Event Analytics, Control Performance Analytics, SIMATIC PCS myExpert, etc. These APPs can be flexibly deployed on MindSphere to fully tap into industrial data value and optimize enterprise production and device operation and maintenance. In addition, the intelligent instrument products widely installed at the site of the process industry by Siemens ensure the accuracy, reliability and stability of data source, which is the basis of process optimization and data mining and the premise and key for digital transformation.
During the event period, Siemens released a new series of low-voltage explosion-proof motor SIMOTICS XP 1MB0063 series and 1MB0013 series. With the new products, Siemens explosion-proof motor product line now has the full coverage of gas and dust explosion-proof senario occasion. Motors of SIMOTICS XP 1MB0063 series have charasteristics inculiding safety, reliability, easy installation, enviornmetal friendly and efficient, flexible adaptation, and can be widely applied in flammable and combustible sites of chemical, refinery, drilling platform, drug manufacturing and sewage treatment works. SIMOTICS XP 1MB0013 series motors can safeguard operation and production of industries such as grain and oil, feed, wood processing, pharmacy, coal dust transportation, port machinery, etc.
