Unlocking new possibilities in metal forming

Last year, the two companies agreed to migrate all of ARISA’s programs that were based on Siemens SIMOTION to SIMATIC S7-1500T, the new generation of programmable logic controllers for motion control related applications.

But this wasn’t just any migration – in combination with new metal forming specific solutions from the Siemens Press Shop Suite, the migration brings ARISA’s programs to the next level and opens the door for digitalization.

In a first step, teams from Nidec Arisa’s engineering department and Siemens in Spain began by generating a digital twin of the machine. The teams also decided to start with the migration of the transfer system – the part of the machine that moves the piece being worked on along the press.
