SPS 2021

sps – smart production solutions

This year, the SPS opens its doors again to a live audience, offering a complementary digital component and thus taking place for the first time as a hybrid trade fair.

SPS is the international trade fair in the field of industrial automation and the annual highlight of the automation industry. With its unique concept, it represents the complete spectrum of smart and digital automation – from simple sensors to intelligent solutions, from what is feasible today to the vision of a comprehensively digitized industrial world.

Visit Zuken at SPS in Hall 6- Booth 238

After two years of an enforced absence due to the pandemic, we look forward to renewing personal contacts and discussing compelling topics such as electromechanical process integration, digitalization and process optimization in engineering in a face-to-face dialogue at SPS 2021 in Nuremberg.

In addition, we have prepared a comprehensive exhibition program based on the three pillars of engineering with E3.series, project data management and mechatronic data model, and paperless manufacturing. 

Our Exhibition Program 

With a multitude of enhancements in the area of connector handling, 3D control cabinet design and ECAD/MCAD data exchange, E3.series release 2021 enables important advances in the areas of user efficiency and process integration.

At SPS smart production solutions 2021, we will be showing the most important innovations such as online checks of our latest release for the manual connection of connectors, the combination of individual connectors to form a connector assembly, 3D control cabinet construction, report generator, extended application programming interface and much more.

As a process centric complement to E3.series, we are showing the latest version of DS-E3, the data management system for electrical engineering and fluid project data. DS-E3 provides all participants in the development process with up-to-date, validated libraries, project data, configurations and parts list information, forming a viable basis for the realization of a consistent electromechanical data model.

With the DS-E3 StarterPackage, we will be presenting a pre-configured version of DS-E3 at the SPS, which provides an easy introduction to a controlled and user-friendly design data management practice with a central data source, secure version control and managed access rights.

As a member of the Smart Cabinet Initiative, Zuken is committed to providing holistic solutions for the current challenges in control cabinet construction.

As an example of the comprehensive portfolio of digitally controlled solutions for control cabinet construction, we will demonstrate in a hands-on scenario the assisted assembly of terminal rails in one-off and small batch sizes using the ELAM system supplied by our partner Armbruster Engineering.  

Highlight wire in 3D cabinetAdditional highlights in the area of digital manufacturing and assembly will be the E3.series manufacturing extensions E3.AssemblingCockpit, E3.WiringCockpit and E3.WiringChecks, which provide the worker with all the information required for assembly, wiring and commissioning testing in paperless form via portable terminals. 

Hybrid format – live and digital

The live event will be complemented by a comprehensive digital programme and thus taking place for the first time as a hybrid trade fair.

To ensure the protection and health of all participants at the trade fair, a protection and hygiene concept has been developed in accordance with legal requirements.
