The German company Siemens plans promote in Mexico the “intelligent industry”, which will allow the country to be more competitive worldwide, through digitalization and digital twin among other processes that add to the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0.
In a statement, the Vice President of Digital Factory, Process Industries and Drives of Siemens Mexico and Central America, Iván Pelayo, said he sees high potential to invest in Mexico and modernize its industrial plant by adding it to Industry 4.0 and directing it to the era of digitalization
He indicated that the innovations that Siemens brings to Mexico are applied successfully in other countries, and in its own plant in Amberg, Germany, which is considered the most intelligent in Europe and one of the most modern in the world.
He explained that in these facilities programmable logic controllers (PLCs) of Simatic type are manufactured, which are used to control any type of machinery, among other products.
The director assured that they will continue investing in essential projects for the growth of the industrial and energy sector in the country and said that there is full confidence in the macroeconomic conditions and stability offered by Mexico.
He recalled that during their last fair of Hannover Messe, Siemens introduced the so-called “Digital Twin”, with which you can recreate production conditions of a new product to correct the same and the production process, and with it companies can make changes and improve a process before starting it already in material form.
In his opportunity, the member of the Board of directors of Siemens AG, Klaus Helmrich, exposed that the digital twin serves to review from the cycles of simple production, until complex sequences of engineering, what takes to optimize the resources and improve.
