100% integrated CNC, robotics and motion control
The tasks in the development of new machine concepts are far beyond a simple series of individual processes.
B&R's holistic approach to Generic Motion Control combines single-axis positioning, gear, cam profile, CNC and robotic functions. Rounded off by network-based security technology with fast response times, this makes entirely new machine concepts possible.
GMC is the key when a machine- or systems manufacturer wants to implement his specific technological know-how. Examples are generally found in plants for sheet metal work, as well as wire and tube bending machines. Since the machines are modular designed, control technology plays a crucial role. Both centralized and decentralized motion architectures have to be supported. Therefore real-time communication via POWERLINK is very important.
Application report: ELB-SCHLIFF Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH
Elb-Schliff, the renowned specialist in grinding technology, has constructed the mechanical compontents of his successful machine series Smartline completely modular. Now the company has expanded the modularization on electrical components, safety technology and software. Thus Elb-Schliff can respond more quickly and flexibly to new market requirements. This modern and sustainable architecture is based on hard- and software provided by B&R.
