Panel saws / Squaring machines
B&R offers a comprehensive portfolio of motion control solutions for panel saws and squaring machines:
• Brushless motors with integrated drive (ACOPOSmotor)
• Ultra-compact and highly dynamic servo motors and drives (8LV + ACOPOSmicro)
• Stepper motors (8OMP + ACOPOSmicro)
• LinMot linear-rotary motors (ACOPOSmicro)
With B&R, machine manufacturers can use any type of motor to control the locking head. The software is completely independent of the actuator. This means that the original manufacturer has total freedom not just to select the best solution for each machine, but also to determine how best to manage time requirements, resources and costs.
100% integration of motion, CNC and robotics
With Generic Motion Control (GMC), B&R makes possible the complete integration of CNC, motion and robotics in a homogeneous environment. GMC allows complicated tasks to be solved elegantly and efficiently, making it easy to perfectly synchronize a conveyor belt and robot, for example. The CNC or robot program generates the path for virtual axes, which can then be coupled to other (virtual) axes or actual positions (e.g. from an encoder on the conveyor belt) and ultimately transferred to real axes. Productivity increases while the workload is reduced.
Open and flexible architecture
B&R has been using open standards and communication protocols for a long time. B&R systems are open to standardized communication interfaces at the machine and ERP level. Previously engineered machine software can also be used with different hardware thanks to B&R's fully scalable product portfolio. The only things that need to be configured are the communication medium itself and the protocol. Dynamic I/O configurations allow the same software to be used for different hardware topologies. The result is a cost-effective and highly flexible solution.
