Solutions for Powertrain

With Solutions for Powertrain, we provide more than the mere technical aspects of automation. Solutions for Powertrain provide concepts for the planning and implementation of comprehensive manufacturing plants for the automotive industry, from optimal machine design in cooperation with the machine manufacturer through to the planning and operation of advanced, networked production areas. Further, this stands for our project management which relieves you of time-consuming coordination. And it comprises ideas and services for the entire planning / engineering and operating phase: To sustainably reduce costs and increase the availability and productivity.

  • Minimized overall project costs
    Through short commissioning times, reduced spare parts requirements, reduced training costs, more convenient maintenance and reduced number of machine standstills

  • One partner for all automation tasks
    From consulting to engineering through to turnkey solutions and efficient service

  • Increased availability and productivity
    Through user-friendly, standardized automation concepts, uniform machine operation and professional project coordination

5-Axis Machining

It's not surprising that the SINUMERIK 840D sl has been the first choice in the automotive manufacturing industry.  Special functions that have been implemented to make your five-axis machining simple and convenient include:

  • Special machine kinematics

  • Five-axis transformation

  • Orientation interpolation

  • High-performance 3-D tool correction

  • Manual five-axis functions

  • "Safety Integrated" functionality


With TRANSLINE, Siemens offers a fully technical solution and a standardized system kit comprising components such as SIMATIC, SINUMERIK, SINAMICS, PROFIBUS, PROFINET, which can be freely selected to solve the relevant task – and which prove every day their productive interaction in ten thousands of manufacturing operations. A modular system facilitates the configuration, while all hardware and software components can neverless be adjusted to the individual needs. Our recipe for success: Uniform design, universality, simplicity – by always using the same hardware design, identical user interfaces, and the same tools for configuring, programming, commissioning and diagnosis.
