DMC to Present at the 2019 Siemens Automation Summit

DMC to Present at the 2019 Siemens Automation Summit

The annual Siemens Automation Summit is one of our most anticipated events each year. The conference brings together fellow Siemens Solution Partners and hundreds of manufacturing professionals who use Siemens automation technologies.

The 2019 Siemens Automation Summit will be held from June 17 - 20 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, CO, near DMC's Denver office

This year's Automation Summit features over 50 user led presentations and trainings sharing industry innovations and best practices. DMC is proud to deliver the following presentations at this year's event.

If you're attending the Automation Summit, stop by these sessions led by DMC!

Flexibility and Standardization Using Dynamic IO Addressing and Option Handling - Gina Brooks-Zak
Advanced manufacturing of the 21st century requires the ability to commission automated lines efficiently and to adapt to manufacturing changes with agility. The S7-1500 platform is ideally suited to meet these needs. 

This presentation will dive into solutions that DMC developed that fully leverage S7’s hardware and development flexibility to create efficient and agile manufacturing deployments. Our customer required a solution that allowed end users to create standard wiring schemes that could be updated in the field without programmers.

We will demonstrate how we achieved this using TIA Portal Extended Addressing instructions to dynamically update IO addresses used in program modules. Additionally, utilizing Option Handling we were able to create a standard program with a variety of hardware options that could be deployed quickly. Learn to leverage TIA Portal flexibility to create a better standardized solution for your application.  

Auto Code Generation and Rapid Brewery/Distillery Automation - Ryan Landwehr
The Siemens Brewing Template is a TIA Portal based auto code generation tool developed in conjunction with Siemens. This presentation will highlight the use of Openness, Simatic Visualization Architect (SiVArc), and S7 Graph to auto-generate and link control modules on a PLC and HMI. We will also elaborate how to use these tools outside of the brewing world for any application.

Additionally, we will illustrate the full development cycle of a project, starting with a Microsoft Excel document and a global library, and finishing with a fully functional project. With over a year in operation, DMC will also discuss Brewing Template success stories such as the complete automation of a craft distillery in Dallas, TX. 

Multi-site WinCC 7 Development with Centralized Process Historian & Information Server - John Michael Frullo
Developing a single SCADA application can be a time-consuming process. Expanding this effort across multiple plants nationwide with the desire for centralized data and reporting service can make this task even more daunting.

Luckily, with WinCC 7, we can take advantage of key features that facilitate the rapid development and standardization of projects across multiple locations. Additionally, the Process Historian and Information Server can be utilized for long-term data storage and automated reporting across all sites from a central location.

Come learn about the tools DMC used to modernize a client’s legacy SCADA into a multi-site WinCC 7 installation that collects information from a variety of PLCs, ranging from legacy TI-505’s and S7-300’s to modern S7-1200’s and S7-1500’s. This data is seamlessly passed through redundant servers and on to the central data storage and reporting center. See how these tools could help you on your next SCADA project! 

We hope to see you at the Siemens Automation Summit in June!
