Panasonic Factory Solutions and Siemens Factory Automation Services announce their future cooperation
Munich, October 2019
The factory automation products and solutions from Panasonic Factory Solutions were able to convince after thorough testing and Panasonic Industry Europe was announced as a supplier for the SMD production of the Siemens AG. Initial systems such as the NPM VF odd-shape mounter for the assembly of THT (Through Hole Technology) components from Panasonic Industry have already been integrated at the Siemens site in Vienna, Austria. Further production sites see great potential for the hardware and software solutions of Panasonic Industry after a thorough examination of the product portfolio. Panasonic Industry is currently working towards connecting the products and solutions to the Siemens systems Teamcenter and MindSphere.
Nils Heininger, Division Director of Panasonic Factory Solutions, is pleased with the new cooperation: "We are very proud to announce the partnership with Siemens Factory Automation Services. Our high-quality and reliable production solutions such as laser markers, insertion machines for THT components as well as complex software solutions such as PanaCIM were able to convince the supply chain management of the Siemens AG and we are looking forward working together."
Dr. Gunter Beitinger, Vice President of Manufacture DI FA MF, sees great potential for the solutions offered by Panasonic Factory Solutions: "The close cooperation allowed us to get to know Panasonic's entire product range. In addition to the placement machines, Panasonic's odd-shape mounters are also a promising approach for further automation projects at Siemens AG's electronics plants."
"The collaboration is an important milestone on the way to digitalizing the supply chain, and our goal is to connect as many machines and plants as possible to Siemens MindSphere in our factories," said Andreas Wipper, Purchasing Council Manager Production Machines Equipment, Siemens Supply Chain Management.

Europe has always been at the heart of wireless technologies, from Marconi’s very first wireless transmission in 1897. Back then that initial radio transmission transformed the world and wireless connectivity continues to do so today.
European businesses expect to see an average 32% boost in productivity in the three years after implementation of the latest wireless technology.
In this research we explore the appetite for different wireless technology adoption, expected applications and benefits, the maturity of rollout projects, any barriers to adoption and general viewpoints about each technology.
