A global and innovative industry needs this type of partner

The fast growth in the electronics industry and Moore's law require continually increasing productivity combined with cost optimization. A high level of innovation, top quality, international standards and worldwide support make B&R a preferred partner.


Integration provides a competitive edge

Not only can machine and system performance be drastically improved by completely integrating control, motion and visualization tasks, communication times can be considerably reduced as well. Our consistent implementation of standardized, open structures for communication, programming, data handling, and functionality provide a decisive competitive edge. The total integration of all automation components in a central development tool as well as hardware components that can be identified clearly at any time form the foundation of complete transparency during development and operation.

Total cost of ownership

In a competitive market, system decisions are increasingly being made based on total cost. An exceptional level of system availability, excellent machine performance, uniform operation, easy-to-use modular devices, compatibility throughout the entire system and an effective worldwide support network guarantee a substantial reduction in total cost. With B&R, you gain a partnership that pays off.

Highest level of availability

In the semiconductor industry, the availability of systems and machines is an absolute necessity. Minimized downtime is just as important as smooth automation. Intuitive and sophisticated diagnostic functions and open interfaces provide support, as does B&R's role as an international and knowledgeable partner.


The line solution

Many electronics manufacturers are now required to make product changes and adjustments on a regular basis. Integrated and well-matched hardware and software are enormously helpful here. Even line configurations can be set up in a few minutes offline and with the click of a mouse, reducing changeover times and downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. Continuous communication between individual machines and to higher-level production planning and control systems guarantees complete recording and traceability of the entire process.


Highest possible precision

Speed and precision are not contradictions – high-performance control electronics with built-in intelligence are used to control the process in the microsecond range. Real-time industrial Ethernet is the foundation for synchronized interaction between individual sub-processes. Continued development guarantees that B&R meets the requirements of the industry and the market in this ever-changing field.


Open system architecture

Innovation is key. With this guiding principle and a completely open system structure, B&R is an ideal partner for all companies that are also clearly focused on innovation. In addition to the integration of highly sophisticated algorithms (programmed in C, for example), dynamic I/O configurations make it possible to use the same software on different hardware topologies.


Process security

Inline quality control, flexible product identification and product tracking are requirements for high-quality electronic components. Continued development guarantees that B&R meets the requirements of the industry and the market in this ever-changing field.
