German Chancellor Angela Merkel visits the "Digital Factory"


Angela Merkel experienced Industrie 4.0 at first hand during her tour of the Siemens Electronics Factory in Amberg. The facility is a prime example of advanced product automation and has received numerous awards. The Amberg factory already combines the real and virtual worlds: Products communicate with machines, and all production processes are optimally integrated and controlled via IT.

  • Unleash your innovation with the next generation of design, simulation, and manufacturing solutions Building on its legacy of best-in-class customer deployment readiness and data preservation, NX 12 delivers the next generation of design, simulation and manufacturing solutions that enable companies to realize the value of the digital twin in the end-to-end process. Unleash your innovation with the only open and integrated multidisciplinary platform. NX 12 Design NX 12 for Design builds on the breakthrough technology of previous releases to deliver a set of refined tools that will help you take innovation to the next level. NX 12 combines solutions for multidisciplinary, generative, and design for additive manufacturing with best-in-class data preservation and deployment readiness, making NX the design tool of choice Multidisciplinary Design NX 12, closely integrated with Mentor Graphics, provides a direct connection between the design of electrical and mechanical systems. It’s no secret that products today are increasingly complex with many, if not most, reliant on integrated electronics. It is critical that designers of both systems collaborate throughout the development process in order to prevent conflicts and ensure alignment between each system prior to design completion. An efficient ECAD-MCAD co-design process enables you to eliminate costly electromechanical issues during new product development by giving a holistic view. Generative Design NX 12 combines tools for design optimization, advanced geometry creation, freeform and parametric design with the ability to model mesh geometry. Compressed schedules often force engineers to choose the first feasible design option. By mimicking nature’s evolutionary approach, generative design empowers you to identify the best design sooner while reducing the number of iterations needed, so you can stay ahead of the competition. Generative design in NX combines tools for topology optimization, advanced geometry creation, free-form shapes, parametric design, and facet or mesh modeling. Design for Additive Manufacturing NX 12 delivers new approaches to design for additive manufacturing including the ability to add lattice. Additive manufacturing is changing the way products are designed as well as how they are manufactured, by enabling optimized designs that were previously impossible or too expensive to make. NX is an integrated platform that meets the unique challenges of designing, optimizing, and building metal and plastic components using the latest additive manufacturing methods. Breakthrough technology delivers advanced methods for designing lightweight parts, while design validation checkers ensure manufacturability. #HSSESsg
