Panel Builder System Integrator

September 20, 2019

BeAM and the global technology company Siemens announced at EMO 2019 their plans to further intensify their already successful collaboration. This is based on the successful piloting of Sinumerik One, the new CNC generation from Siemens. As a "digital native", the new controller features software for the creation of digital twins, which supports the seamless integration of hardware and software. BeAM is the first machine builder to equip an additive manufacturing machine - Modulo 250 - with a Sinumerik One. At EMO 2019, the world's first AM machine equipped with a Sinumerik One will be presented to the public at the Siemens booth in Hall 9, Booth H50. Visitors to EMO can see how the program simulation is operated on the machine using the Digital Twin of Production in the NX Virtual Machine software. „We are very excited to close the loop in the additive digital chain by bridging virtual simulation and actual deposition on our new Modulo 250 thanks to the integration of the new Sinumerik One. It opens up new possibilities for our industrial customers willing to integrate further DED in their value chain and optimize its usage “, explains BeAM’s CEO Vincent Gillet.

In the future collaboration, the companies plan to equip the entire BeAM machine fleet successively with Sinumerik One. In addition, the companies want to implement BeAM AM machines in the integrated additive manufacturing solutions of the Digital Enterprise portfolio. This means that joint developments and adaptations to CAD / CAM functions in Siemens NX can be tackled. Closer cooperation is also planned in terms of data management with Teamcenter, implementation in MES / MOM systems, process control and support for process monitoring and service functions from Siemens MindSphere and Edge functionality. "The rapid industrialization of additive manufacturing goes hand in hand with digital transformation and can only be achieved through close cooperation between experts in software and hardware and in industrial 3D printing, as is the case with Siemens and BeAM. Through the use of digital twins throughout the value chain from virtual design to creation of the actual component, digitalization in additive manufacturing ensures maximum efficiency, productivity and data transparency for the entire production process as well as maximum quality for the manufactured component," explains Uwe Ruttkamp, Head of Machine Tool Systems at Siemens Digital Industries.
