Siemens Tecnomatix and The Digital Twin - Webinar
In the December webinar, we are partnering with Geometric Solutions Account Manager Nathan Pfeiffer. He will be sharing his knowledge about how The Digital Twin with Siemens Tecnomatix can benefit your facilities.

What is the Digital Twin?
The Digital Twin is your "crystal ball" that lets you see problems and mitigates risks before issues occur during production.

The Benefits
The Digital Twin with Siemens Tecnomatix strengthens program information availability to all levels of your company - from executive to plant floor personnel. It also promotes transparency on issues related to product and operational quality, thus decreasing launch time through increased plant capacities and material cost controls.

Product development is about far more than just design - it's about bringing an idea to life quickly, cost-effectively, and with top quality. Tecnomatix Digital Manufacturing Solutions help to ensure that you can build your products as well as you design them. Whether you are designing a new plant from the ground up or introducing a new product into an existing facility, Tecnomatix solutions help streamline implementation, reduce startup costs, and improve safety!

Webinar Overview
During this webinar we will cover Plant Simulation, Process Simulate, Variational Analysis and other tools available in Siemens Tecnomatix. These tools will help you better understand how you can mitigate your risks and become a true industry leader!

Upgrading to Siemens TIA Portal from Step 5 and Step 7 Classic - Webinar
Join our Siemens certified in Factory Automation and C&E Automation Specialist Howard Wong, as he discusses best practices for upgrading your Step 5 and Step 7 Classic systems to new controller generation, the Siemens TIA Portal.

Siemens Step 5TIA Portal

In 2003, Siemens officially discontinued the Step 5 system and has not manufactured any components for that system ever since. These components have become extremely difficult to source and the software is no longer compatible with the latest version of the Windows operating system.

Siemens TIA Portal

The Siemens TIA Portal, which is the new controller generation, has an up-to-date system architecture that offers new and efficient programming as well as new configuration options.

Webinar Overview
In this webinar, our specialist will review the factors involved with upgrading to the Siemens TIA Portal. We will be discussing options for gradual migration to the latest system, the advantages of the new hardware components in comparison to the older options, and how to prepare for the programming differences between the Step 5 and TIA Portal systems. In addition to that, we will provide an outline for the conversion of PLC programs.

Programming with Structured Control Language (SCL) in TIA Portal with S7-1200/1500
Learn about programming with SCL and how you can mix with typical ladder logic. The SCL language is very powerful and well suited for complex math operations, data handling with arrays and string processing. SCL is a high-level text based language that is easy to understand, yet provides many benefits over traditional ladder programming. This seminar will provide the foundation for you to start programming in SCL.
