Hybrid processes – Production automation and process automation

Boundless variety

Qualification solutions and training factories for production and process automation.

Tell us what you need – we'll design your ideal learning environment and establish the required dependencies at process level. We look forward to designing solutions with you for special topics such as:

  • Water treatment
  • Cooling and refrigeration technology
  • pH value measurement
  • Conductivity measurement
  • Pneumatics in process engineering, for example slide valve actuators with positioners, specifically for the paper industry

MPS® PA, combined with MPS® stations


It is only logical that the MPS® PA (process automation) stations can be combined with stations from the greater MPS® family. This makes MPS® an interesting proposition for basic and further training in many industries which are dominated by process automation but still require elements from production automation.

The well thought-out modular design with clear-cut interfaces protects your investment and facilitates adaptation to future developments in components as well as open-loop and closed-loop control systems. This means that the system can be adapted to new requirements.

AFB – The modular concept factory for all hybrid production tasks


The learning system for all processes associated with production automation and process automation.

  • Production
  • Handling of seals
  • Packaging
  • Filling
  • Transportation and routing
  • Storage
  • Input/output

The ideal solution for hybrid production process requirements in the food sector. The platform connects stations and elements from the MPS® Modular Production System with stations from the MPS® PA learning system and the Compact Workstation.

The system is therefore completely modular and new processes and training content can be added gradually. Project work with hands-on training can take place at individual stations, on partially integrated production lines and in a fully integrated learning factory.

Customer-specific solutions


You have specific requirements? Numerous installations across the globe have given rise to a range of solutions with a particular focus on hybrid automation.

An example of this is provided by Siemens AG Professional Education Berlin, whose mixing and filling station demonstrates how a continuous flow process is brought into line with a gradual container filling process. The students experience an operational process showing the entire sequence of an automated customer order processing system.
