Siemens recently announced the launch of operations at the technology and application centre (TAC) at Peenya, Bengaluru. This facility, the first in India by Siemens, will enable machine tool manufacturers and end users to improve productivity through testing machining techniques in real-world conditions. Spread across 6,500 sq-ft, TAC will allow Indian machine tool manufacturers and users to get a handson experience of the latest CNC technologies and solutions from Siemens and its partners. TAC will also organise knowledge sharing programs, provide application support and training to customers and educational institutes among many other initiatives.
In addition to demonstrations of Siemens SINUMERIK CNC controllers and CAD/CAM solutions, the centre will also use SinuTrain, a simulation tool, for training users to gain higher productivity using technology-specific functions and features. “The modernization of Indian industries is creating growth opportunities for the machine tool industry. Bringing a differentiated product to the market in a cost effective manner is imperative for the success of our customers in today’s competitive market. Siemens TAC, like other six Siemens TACs across the world, will function as a knowledge hub for cutting edge technology, as our customers and partners embrace newer machine processes and equipment,” said Joachim Zoll, global head, machine tools business segment, Siemens. The new TAC will also showcase how Siemens solutions and services for machine tools, drives and automation work together to optimise operational costs, maximise ROI, enable higher productivity and precision.
