"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 cam profiles, 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
"The ability to reuse existing libraries drastically reduced our development times. We also opted for POWERLINK for real-time communication to achieve optimal synchronization of our motion control while boosting overall machine performance and precision. This has been a huge advantage when it comes to handling our complex applications."
Kang-Sun Lee, Application Manager
"The close-knit integration of control, drive and visualization technology offered by B&R made it considerably easier for us to implement a help system. B&R technology allows us to equip our machines with features that are decisive to staying competitive."
Jörg Schmeiser, Director of Product Management at GEA CFS
Packaging Efficiency Solutions
"We have built our systems around B&R technology. The ability to tightly integrate complex, coordinated motion, high speed information processing, and communications on multiple platforms through a single control package allows us to provide the most user friendly and efficient system designs to our customers."
