Real solutions in action
Over the past year, technical managers and developers have experienced the latest innovations at each of B&R's exhibition appearances. Industry 4.0, real-time applications with microsecond responsiveness and modular panel PCs were just a few of the topics they learned about. Here are some of the highlights:
POWERLINK Convention 2014
Italy's first POWERLINK Convention will bring together prestigious companies like ABB, B&R, Cognex, Comau, Eaton, Festo, Hilscher and Laumas to show Italian machine builders, end users and system integrators how POWERLINK technology can make them more competitive on a global scale.
Hannover Messe 2014:
A demo model shows how seamlessly a CNC system, a 6-axis robot and a motion controller can work together – offering a glimpse at the digital factory of the future. B&R offers vertically integrated automation – from the ERP system down to the sensor – with Automation Studio and APROL PDA.
One of the highlights of B&R's booth in Brno was the new reACTION Technology and its response time of only 1 µs. B&R also introduced its Power Panel T-Series and C-Series, X20 compact controllers and Panel PC 900 multi-touch. All products are networked using real-time Ethernet POWERLINK technology.
SPS IPC Drives Italia 2014
SPS IPC Drives Italia is one of the largest international exhibitions for electrical automation technology – and one of the few to feature integrated automation solutions. The big event drew more than 21,000 visitors and provided the perfect venue for B&R to present its latest innovations.
