At Siemens Power and Gas we are utilizing the benefits of Additive Manufacturing
to increase our customers satisfaction, enhance our products and optimize our
processes along the entire value chain from R&D to services. Thereby we are using
AM for our entire portfolio, from the compressor through the combustion to the
turbine applications of our entire fleet. Based on these high-end applications and
the connected requirements, we are driving the transfer of established industrial
standards and certificates also to the AM technologies. Hence, we expect open and
transparent AM systems, allowing us to access and influence all available data at
all times online in realtime; just as in other established industries e.g. Pharma, F&B
and semiconductor. These open systems shall be connected into production lines,
with vertically and horizontally totally integrated automation solutions and also
seamlessly integrated into one end-to-end PLM ecosystem. A holistically digitalized
ecosystem, with one integrated CAx Plattform beyond the classical CAD-CAECAM
mindset and with one data format. In AM all three disciplines consistently
affect one another and hence must be considered and represented simultaneously
to enable disruptive, generative, and more efficient topologies. Innovative Topologies
increasing the overall efficiency of our turbines and therefore also enabling us
to contribute to society, by fostering the global reduction of CO2 emission.
