SIEMENS TO FOCUS ON ENERGY EFFICIENCY AT TWO GLASS CONFERENCES ATLANTA, Oct. 13, 2008 – Glass industry producers attending two conferences in October and November, 2008, will have opportunities to meet members of the global Siemens Glass Team and discuss ways to cut energy consumption and increase production efficiencies.

Siemens engineers will be on hand at both Glasstec, to be held in Düsseldorf, Germany, Oct. 21 to 25, and the 69th Conference on Glass Problems to be held at the Fawcett Center for Tomorrow, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, on Nov. 4 and 5.

For more than 50 years, Siemens has worked closely with leading international glass manufacturers as well as machine builders, engineering companies and technology partners to develop and implement leading-edge, effective solutions for the challenges facing the glass industry.

Daniel Wishnick, Industry Manager, Siemens Glass Center of Competence, says Siemens will showcase a uniform range of energy saving products and systems for automation and power supply, supplemented by a comprehensive portfolio of services.

“Glass producers need partners who can provide global energy saving advice and support on a worldwide scale,” Wishnick says. “We will demonstrate how energy management tools integrated into Siemens SIMATIC® PCS 7 process control system can provide support for optimization of energy consumption. We will also show how other Siemens technologies are reducing the connected loads on hollow glass machines by nearly 80 percent through the use of advanced motor and drive technology.”
