Siemens sets up new Thane unit

Siemens India has inaugurated a digitalised low-voltage switchgear factory in Thane district of Maharashtra.

Located in Kalwa town, the factory is expected to manufacture over 5 million switchgear devices that come in 180 variants annually at the rate of one product every nine seconds, Siemens India said in a statement.

Karlheinz Kaul, CEO, Control Products, Digital Factory, Siemens AG, said: "With the launch of the showcase digitalised factory in India, we further deepen our ties with a country in which we have a very strong presence."

"The 'SIRIUS' range of switchgear products that will be manufactured here requires a very high degree of precision and quality at global standards that can be achieved only through digitalisation."

The company expects the production methods deployed at the plant to set a benchmark for small and medium-sized manufacturing units in the country.

The digital factory is one of the nine divisions at Siemens. It aims to provide a comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software products, which enable comprehensive integration of data from development, production and suppliers. Siemens had built its first digital factory at home in Germany and the second in China.
