SIPLUS HCS really turns up the heat

From automobile painting and plastics molding to manufacturing PET bottles: reliable, pinpoint control and precise maintenance of temperatures is absolutely crucial to quality in many manufacturing processes. It must be exact and it must be guaranteed.SIPLUS HCS, the industrial heating control systems from Siemens have been providing this service reliably for more than 25 years. And they’re getting smarter all the time.


The perfect solution for industrial heating applications with widely different requirements

SIPLUS HCS – Overview

How can I provide the right temperature in the right location?

In order to increase the quality and quantity of a thermally treated product, it is important to be able to accurately focus the required energy with regard to time and space. Even small deviations in the thermal process can result in enormous impairment of product quality. SIPLUS HCS is the intelligent answer to sensitive thermal requirements in industry and guarantees extremely precise control of the ohmic loads.

From designing, commissioning, operating to maintaining SIPLUS HCS not only saves time, costs, and resources by up to 70 percent compared with a heating solution with individual components. SIPLUS HCS also improves the heating process – for less downtime and better product quality.
