Dear Sir or Madam,
Industry 4.0 is transforming manufacturing systems – both the equipment and the way it is developed. When it comes to engineering, software development is becoming an increasingly significant time and cost factor. With mapp technology, B&R provides core software functionality in the form of standardized, thoroughly field-tested modules. Rather than reinventing standard features that are virtually identical on every machine, you can invest your time in innovations that set you apart from the competition.
It's been a year since B&R first introduced mapp technology. Dr. Michael Kreis, VP of R&D at Kaltenbach, and Markus Sandhöfner, general manager of B&R Germany, sat down to talk about their experiences so far. Check out the full interview to learn more..
Visit us at the Hannover Messe
