An innovative global industry needs partners to match
The fast growth in the electronic industry and Moore's law require continually increasing productivity combined with cost optimization. With its commitment to innovation, premium quality, international standards and worldwide support, B&R is the perfect partner for the job.
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 can support you by providing high availability, uniform operation, modular device structures, compatibility with the entire system, and a worldwide support network. This is a partnership that pays off.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week
In the semiconductor industry, the availability of systems and machines is an absolute necessity. Minimizing downtime is just as important as optimizing performance during uptime. B&R supports high availability by providing open interfaces and sophisticated, intuitive diagnostic functions as well as a global network of expert service and support.
The line solution
Today's electronics manufacturers have to deal with frequent product changeovers. Fully integrated, perfectly orchestrated hardware and software components allow lines to be converted in minutes. Faster changeovers and less downtime boost efficiency and productivity. Continuous communication between individual machines and to higher-level production planning and control systems guarantees seamless records and traceability of the entire process.
Speed and precision are not mutually exclusive – B&R's high-performance control electronics with built-in intelligence control processes with microsecond precision. Real-time Ethernet POWERLINK is the foundation for perfectly synchronized interaction between individual sub-processes. POWERLINK also provides the ideal approach for future innovations and modular machine concepts.
Open system architecture
Innovation is key. With this guiding principle and a completely open system structure, B&R is an ideal partner for companies who share its passion for 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.
