Siemens launches ‘Arena of Digitalization’ showcase at Bavarian manufacturing facility

Electric motors for industrial use have been manufactured at the Siemens site in Bad Neustadt an der Saale for 80 years. Digitalization is playing an increasingly important role at this site. For this reason, the plant is going to be developed as a showcase factory for digitalization in metalworking. In the new “Arena of Digitalization” covering an area of more than 800 square meters, Siemens is now showing customers and partners how digitalization is used in metalworking and motor production and what results can be achieved with it. In addition, using its own development and the way production has grown over many years as an example, the showcase factory demonstrates how digitalization already offers advantages in terms of productivity and efficiency for the discrete manufacturing industry.

The “Arena of Digitalization” was opened today by Klaus Helmrich, member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, Jan Mrosik, CEO of Siemens’ Digital Factory Division, Wolfgang Heuring, CEO of Siemens’ Motion Control Business Unit, and Peter Deml, head of the electric motor plant in Bad Neustadt an der Saale.

As a response to these challenges, Siemens is offering its customers from the manufacturing sector a comprehensive portfolio of products and solutions under the Digital Enterprise umbrella. At the electric motor plant in Bad Neustadt an der Saale, Siemens uses six specific topic areas to show how products and solutions from its own portfolio can be implemented step by step in a production process that is already up and running.
