"B&R again showed their flexibility and commitment by modifying their standard ACOPOS firmware. As a result, we have tubular linear motors that provide very homogeneous movements with minimal power consumption, which we can now implement as a company standard."
Dieter Finger, Head of Electrical Development
"We use automation components from a variety of suppliers. A standardized communication protocol is the only way our strategy of using different safety component suppliers can be successful. That's why we use openSAFETY."
Pierantonio Ragazzini, Innovation Technology Manager, I.M.A. Industria Macchine, Automatiche S.p.A.
"We use a large number of format-specific cams, which need to be scaled and switched out while the machine is running. This is extremely challenging. Thanks to POWERLINK, we're able to vary the machine cycles even at speeds of 600 shrink-wrapped packages per minute."
Ulf Leineke, Electrical and R&D Manager
"B&R offers the flexibility and technical expertise necessary to make our packaging machines as competitive and successful as they are."
Josu Ugart, Head of R&D Electronics ULMA Packaging
"B&R components are extremely modular, which worked out great for us while we were upgrading to a more flexible and energy-efficient machine solution for manufacturing shrink wrap packaging machines."
