Powertrain – cost efficient although complex processes

The integrated CAD/CAM-CNC process chain for machine tools reduces development times and increases flexibility. With Solutions for Powertrain Siemens offers a comprehensive concept for planning and implementing production plants, including project support, consulting and a wide range of services, in conjunction with our technical solution TRANSLINE. These are only a part of the benefits for machines and powertrain manufacturing facilities.

Tasks in the powertrain production

To keep up with today’s trends, automakers must manage more complex machining and assembly processes during Powertrain production than ever before. The challenges are numerous, including flexible powertrain assembly lines to accommodate diverse models, reducing the time required to produce powertrain components, maintaining high availability, and keeping lifecycle costs low.

Product design for powertrains

NX for design

In response to engine and transmission actuation and new technologies to reduce energy losses and recover waste energy, the complexity of powertrain control systems has increased rapidly. An integrated digital simulation environment can streamline your engine development time.

NC programming simulation

NC programming simulation

Part programming is directly connected to  the process plan. CAM programmers are tasked to execute those plans producing tool paths, post-processing them and making sure that there will be no problems during physical manufacturing.

Quality programming includes CMM programming and doing machine simulation to validate digitally the generated programs.
