Manufacturers are turning to a new generation of production machinery to enable their digital transformations. They need to efficiently achieve shorter runs with more frequent changeovers to address SKU proliferation. There is a growing demand of mass customization, and even batch size one. They need the means to implement e-commerce, direct-to-consumer and omnichannel fulfillment strategies.
The solution is the adaptive machine – machines that adapt to the products being made and packaged instead of product conforming to rigidly sequential processes.
This calls for a new generation of systems integrator familiar with the adaptive machine’s core technologies, not just conventional control systems. These include intelligent track technology, Machine-Centric Robotics, digital twins and integrated vision. B&R has expanded the Value Provider Program to meet this need.
The Value Provider Program consists of authorized integrators with years of experience using B&R’s advanced automation systems and trained in applying adaptive machine technologies that are not available from other automation suppliers. These integrators have invested significant time and resources to earn B&R’s Value Provider distinction and have the expertise required for vertical startups, project consultation, engineering services and project management.
B&R provides specific engineering resources to its Value Providers as well as an unprecedented level of interconnected subsystems to simplify integration. For example, using its digital twin technology, B&R can simulate the operation of intelligent track systems with the customer committing capital to prototypes. This capability alone has proven invaluable in the systems integration process.
B&R offers its Value Providers to ensure the success of projects using technologies to make machines and production lines more synchronized, flexible, productive and easier to own and operate. B&R will also work at its customers’ requests to train their trusted integrators in the technologies of the adaptive machine.
