Efficient production at any batch size


B&R presented the SuperTrak industrial transport system at the SPS IPC Drives trade fair. Other highlights included a multitude of mapp components and connected manufacturing solutions based on OPC UA communication.

Two years ago, B&R radically simplified the development of machine software with the introduction of mapp Technology. These precoded and thoroughly tested software components have since been making life easi-er for OEMs by taking low-level programming tasks for basic functions off their hands. Encouraged by outstanding market acceptance in this short time, B&R has continued to expand its software framework – offering even greater savings to customers developing applications in the areas of CNC, robotics, complex closed-loop control and HMI.

Solutions for connected manufacturing
B&Ralso presented numerous communication solutions for the connected factory envisaged by Industry 4.0. By combining OPC UA and openSAFETY to create Safe Line Automation, B&R offers seamless and scalable safety throughout integrated production lines. B&R will also be presenting a cloud solution for its APROL process control system.

Advanced system architecture for commercial vehicles
With B&R's X90 system, manufacturers of construction, agricultural and municipal vehicles can now benefit from B&R's 35 years of automation experience. In addition to the control and I/O system, these applications can profit from B&R's Automation Studio development environment, mapp software framework and global support network.
