Automobiles have become not only more powerful in recent years, but also considerably more varied.
This has affected automotive powertrain manufacturing processes:
High model variety and shorter product life cycles require a mixed production on the same assembly and production line.
JIT/JIS production enables cost efficient production and logistic processes in automotive.
Comprehensive product quality data has to be stored for liability reasons
Cost of ownership” has to be minimized
Automotive powertrain manufacturing automation has to enable:
Reduction of production hours per powertrain component
High plant availability
Innovative logistics for JIT/JIS production
High line flexibility for high model variety and shorter product life cycles
Reduction of life cycle costs
Our solutions for powertrain are tailor-made, because Solutions for Powertrain TRANSLINE are systematically based on the modular design principle. They can immediately boost productivity, achieve higher levels of availability, and deliver greater plant utilization throughout the entire automotive powertrain manufacturing process.
To deliver these advantages, the hardware and software used in our Solutions for Powertrain TRANSLINE concept have been extensively tested and have established the performance standards for their respective areas. They ensure that everything in your automotive powertrain plant runs as planned all the time, even around the clock.
In automotive powertrain applications with daily throughput of up to 2,500 units, you can achieve greater production efficiency by deploying end-to-end standards that are tailored to meet your individual needs.
Our automotive Solutions for Powertrain are based on modular components and systems like SIMATIC, SINUMERIK, SINAMICS or PROFINET – names that have set standards in the market. They enhance productivity because of their uniformity and integration in hardware, operation, configuration, programming, commissioning and diagnostics – all intelligently coordinated by the TRANSLINE control architecture.
To further optimize automotive powertrain manufacturing, Siemens provides professional project assistance from planning to service, plus user training and integrated spare parts concepts.
Our modular automation concept Solutions for Powertrain TRANSLINE - customized to meet your unique needs - makes your automotive powertrain production line a road to success.
