Siemens - We collaborate with the best in the world


Seeking Innovators to Present at Our Supplier Innovation Day, July 4, 2017 in Nürnberg, Germany.



Innovation has been the lifeblood of Siemens for more than 165 years, allowing us to remain at the leading edge – and our partners play a vital role in this ongoing effort.


Siemens is organizing a Supplier Innovation Day at its Large Drives Business Unit for chosen key suppliers and innovators. The Large Drives Business Unit manufactures AC machines for low and medium voltages as well as converters for these machines. Large Drives also offers DC drives, special drives for ships and rolling mills, and converters, automation control systems, and motors for traction drives. The range also includes converters for power distribution and after-sales service for heavy-duty drive systems. Large Drives bases its business on system and solution expertise and platform-based manufacturing for flexible standard systems with a high level of customer benefit.


The Supplier Innovation Day will focus onto innovations for our own Industrie 4.0 implementation within our entire value chain:

  • Cyber physical system / cyber physical production system
  • Decentralized intelligence
  • Collaboration technologies
  • Horizontal integration for multi-site / product manufacturing
  • Smart devices in industrial environment
  • Digital Twin "through the value chain”
