Dear Sir or Madam,
Our 2017 innovations are focused around the topics of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT). As a special feature, we will be unveiling the intelligent SuperTrak industrial transport system. SuperTrak enables efficient production at any volume – even at batch size one. We will show you more at this year’s SPS IPC Drives.
Your B&R Team
SPS IPC Drives – We look forward to your visit
B&R will be presenting the SuperTrak industrial transport system at the SPS IPC Drives trade fair. Dependable, precise and remarktably low maintenance – it enables agile, efficient production at any batch size. Other highlights on display at the B&R booth (Hall 7 / Booth 206) include a multitude of new mapp components and connected manufacturing solutions based on OPC UA communication. Let us give you a sneak peek at what awaits you in Nuremberg.
„OPC UA goes real-time“
Today, OPC UA is fast, but not deterministic in terms of automation – with the publish-subscribe model, however, data exchange is a lot closer to what you get with a real-time system. Matthias Damm, head of the OPC Foundation's pub/sub working group explains the pub/sub model what effects the TSN extension has on OPC UA.
B&R gains market share through innovation
"We're going to be continuing our growth streak in 2016," said General Manager Peter Gucher at the annual press conference in the run-up to the SPS IPC Drives.
B&R's growth spans all industries, with packaging being particularly strong at the moment, as Gucher highlighted. Particularly in demand: the intelligent SuperTrak transport system, powerful servo drives and the web-based mapp View HMI solution.
