With B&R's industrial transport system, it is now possible to transport liquids quickly with no spills. Specially designed movement profiles prevent the development of positive feedback loops on the surface of the liquid so that it remains calm during transport. We have prepared a ►Video to demonstrate the anti-sloshing technology.
B&R continues to expand its mapp Technology software framework. The new mapp Tweet function allows a machine application to send information via text message or email. This ensures fast maintenance response times, which boosts machine availability.
After twenty years of operation, the CNC trimming machine at Gut Metallumformung AG had reached the end of its service life. The control components in particular were suffering more and more frequent breakdowns. Following the retrofit, the system convices with its modular design and also the safety technology is once again state-of-the-art.
B&R has set yet another benchmark in integrated safety technology with its new blackout mode. This feature allows safety applications to continue to run after a failure of the network or main controller. It no longer takes an expensive redundancy solution to ensure maximum availability of the safety application.
