the rising demand for an increasing variety of products requires new, flexible manufacturing processes. This edition of the automationLETTER highlights how B&R gives machine builders the freedom to select the most appropriate actuator for any given project without requiring any changes to previously developed software - and how this guarantees the best price/performance ratio every time.
B&R improves the efficiency of machines and systems by combining CNC, robotics and motion control into a single software platform called Generic Motion Control (GMC). This approach offers maximum flexibility in terms of drive technology and control philosophy.
The intelligent monitoring of machinery and plant states means reduced downtime in metalworking enterprises as well as the prevention of damage caused by unexpected defects. APROL ConMon is B&R's solution for measuring, recording and evaluating all relevant condition parameters to provide optimal support for the continual improvement process.

Hall 12 / Booth B05 at the EUROBLECH exhibition in Hanover, Germany, will be the place to be as B&R presents APROL ConMon. The latest solutions inspired by the vision of "Industry 4.0" will be on display at the B&R booth as well. Also being highlighted is B&R's comprehensive Automation Studio engineering environment, a tool that presides over the entire machine lifecycle and considerably simplifies engineering processes all along the way.

In the future, production batches will continue to become smaller and smaller, requiring flexible production processes that can be set up quickly and easily. And even though the machinery itself is becoming more complex, it still has to remain operable. To meet these challenges, B&R offers a complete portfolio of scalable and compatible products for the machine tool segment.
