Highlights include HTML5 based HMI, Industrial Internet of Things connectivity, flexibility, open robotics integration with SuperTrak™ industrial transport, Augmented Reality and networked safety.
At this year’s PACK EXPO International show, September 25- 27, Las Vegas Convention Center; Las Vegas, NV, B&R Industrial Automation Corp. will exhibit automation technologies that are trending in packaging machinery design at booth S-6163. B&R specializes in standards-based, scalable and modular control systems integrating logic, motion, open and mapp robotics, human-machine interface (HMI), networked safety, I/O and data acquisition in a unified software development environment.
Highlights of featured B&R technologies include:
Increased product and package transport, efficiency, value-added processing and machine-to-machine integration through synchronization of SuperTrak linear industrial transport technology with open robotics. Some industry leading features of the SuperTrak include new anti-slosh control for liquid transport, batch-of-one manufacturing and packaging, rapid changeover and greatly reduced footprint.
Industrial IoT for Brownfields: B&R’s Orange Box enables machine data collection and analysis from previously isolated machines and lines.
Increased machine availability: B&R continues to expand its mapp Technology software framework. With the new mapp Tweet function, a machine application can now send information via text message or email.
Full safety functionality following network failure: B&R has set yet another benchmark in integrated safety technology with its new blackout mode. This feature allows safety applications to continue to run after a failure of the network or main controller.
