Siemens India has launched the Digital Experience and Application Centre (DEX), a full-fledged testing, simulation and training centre for the machine tool industry, in Bengaluru.
The facility, spread across 9,000 sq ft, allows machine tool manufacturers and users to experience the integrations of hardware with software solutions as well as that of the physical with virtual worlds.
“This is important with digitalisation and the adoption of Industry 4.0 in manufacturing. Training is more important than ever to keep employees’ skills up to date,” said Vijay Pratap Singh, Head of Motion Control Business, Digital Factory, Siemens India.
Machine tool professionals can simulate and co-create efficient machining strategies, from machine design to engineering and commissioning, and improve productivity in real-world conditions using Siemens’ digitalisation portfolio.
The end users can have their manufacturing processes optimised from the design stage to execution until services of their final product. The facility also demonstrates the connectivity solution of shop floor to the top floor within the premises as well as MindSphere (cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens).
Singh said, “India is set to become a key player in the global machine tools industry and is likely to see substantial high-end machine tool manufacturing. With our digital enterprise portfolio, we provide the foundation for the machine tool industry to adopt Industry 4.0 and move into digital manufacturing, from product design, planning, engineering, execution and digital services.”
