Service 4.0: With these new developments, we are making plants fit for the future
Optimized production, more efficiency, higher plant availability - this is ensured by the current Siempelkamp developments, which can be integrated into existing plants either as part of modernizations resp. modifications or as standalone solutions.
Service 4.0 as an answer to Industry 4.0
Markets and technologies are in a state of change, digital transformation is in full swing - keyword Industry 4.0. As a result, what is required of developers and service providers as we are is constantly changing.
Our goal: Not only to respond to this progress, but also to actively promote it for the benefit of our customers, towards a Service 4.0. We achieve this in several ways: firstly, thanks to our own concepts developed to continuously improve our service, secondly, with the answers to the requirements of customers and projects and then, of course, with the innovations standing for best "German Engineering" as Siempelkamp technologies. Selected examples can be found here:
Position Encoder Master Gauge
For less waste boards and higher production quality
A new measurement frame, which is fixed onto the foundation embraces the upper and the lower heating platens of the ContiRoll®, at the master system in the calibration zone. The linear transducer (top and bottom) are connected to the measurement frame and measure the exact heating platen position.
Simultaneous measurement of the top and bottom heating plate position
For precise measurement of weight per unit area and tramp material detection
Clear, multidimensional visualization able to localize forming errors and tramp material in the mat, for detecting process-caused faulty mat sections containing density deviations and to detect even the smallest tramp material (1.6 mm)
Fast absorption measurement method
Detection of smallest variations in weight per unit area
Most effective protection of downstream press components (e.g. steel belt protection)
Reliable drive technology with high savings potential
Energy-efficient servo motor with two-stage gear unit and integrated water cooling, which offers a significantly increased service life and -reliability compared to conventional drive concepts with complex gear box geometry
Best efficiency with up to 14% energy savings (partial-load operation)
Wear not relevant due to low rotation, very low risk of failure
The Siempelkamp benchmark: "Leadership in Technology". Taking this high standard into account, the experts for machine and plant construction continuously ensure even more performance and sustainability of your plant. The following overview shows you which new technologies are also available for this purpose.
The next level of high-speed production: a newly developed press infeed, state-of-the-art drive and instrumentation technology, simulation and process control technology as well as new processes for mat pre-heating and the finishing line have elevated the ContiRoll® to new heights.

Flow-optimized via state-of-the-art CFD software (Computational Fluid Dynamics), the sifter offers 20% more fiber throughput compared to industry standard than comparable designs with a 30% reduction in fan performance.
The EcoPulser uses a completely new almost wear-free, bladeless process to achieve an additional size reduction of chips and particles. In addition, the innovative disintegration method ensures excellent energy efficiency and offers enormous energy-saving potentials.
