Energy and resource efficiency

For today's print media production, optimum utilization of energy and resources is essential to profitability. B&R's portfolio features a range of solutions for energy metering and for monitoring the flow of energy at the machine or system level, as well as motion control systems that utilize regenerative power and efficient alternatives to energy-wasting pneumatics based on compact electric actuators.



Digitization is the key to providing individualized printed products. Whether you're integrating digital printing technology in an existing system, implementing a fully digital workflow, linking production lines to global communication networks or automating digital printing equipment – B&R's automation systems are designed to handle today's most advanced digital printing requirements.


Individualization and personalization

Trends toward increased individualization and personalization for targeted marketing campaigns are driving demands for shorter print runs and faster turnaround times. As an automation partner, B&R gladly accepts the challenge of increasing production flexibility, reducing downtime, minimizing wastage and improving efficiency when interlinking machines.


Maximum product quality

The challenge at the heart of today's market is to achieve cost-efficient and error-free production of short run print jobs at reproducible high quality. Maximum product quality can be achieved using B&R's high-precision motion control technology and out-of-the-box process control solutions such as winder control, register control, multi-zone tension control, repetitive control and registration mark processing.



A modular design allows custom solutions to be built from a standardized set of machine modules. B&R‘s dedication to this approach has resulted in a broad selection of distributed automation components including I/O modules, servo drives and servo actuators as well as a fully modular safety solution. The Automation Studio engineering environment provides sophisticated features for highly efficient software modularization.


Total cost of ownership

In a competitive market, the total cost of a system becomes an increasingly influential factor in the decision-making process. B&R guarantees substantial reductions in overall costs through increased system availability, optimized machine performance, uniform HMI operation, streamlined modular design, systemwide compatibility and a reliable worldwide support network. This is a partnership that pays off.


Highest level of availability

High production line availability is a key requirement in the printing industry. A fully redundant automation system, predictive maintenance based on condition monitoring, intuitive diagnostics and open interfaces push machines to new levels of availability. With B&R as a partner, a global supply and support network means your automation components are guaranteed to be available where and when you need them.


Stability and investment security

A more predictable development process guarantees the lasting value of machines and systems. Configurable, preprogrammed functions for a wide range of machine processes reduce the time and cost spent on engineering. Individual customer requests can be implemented using software libraries that meet international standards as well as custom function blocks that encapsulate the customer's technological expertise. The scalability and long-term availability of B&R's hardware products guarantee a return on investment for developed software.
