B&R continues to push packaging machine performance to its physical limits. With reACTION and NetTime technology, B&R has reduced response times in industrial automation applications down to 1 µs, allowing extremely time-critical subprocesses to be managed using standard hardware within IEC 61131 requirements. The newest B&R solutions for the packaging industry will be on display on May 8 - 14 at interpack 2014 in Dusseldorf (Hall A6 / Booth E62).
B&R's innovative automation technologies are opening up entirely new levels of machine and line performance – not to mention increased flexibility and availability. B&R products make it easy to seamlessly integrate a wide range of advanced automation technology into packaging machines, including web services, advanced motion control and robotics, safety, vision systems and IT connectivity. The performance of high-speed machine functions such as product labelling or the rejection of sub-par products has also gained an enormous boost – without added costs – through the use of B&R reACTION and NetTime technologies.
Packaging lines demand extreme levels of productivity and flexibility across the board – from the primary and secondary solutions straight through to the end-of-line equipment. This can be achieved through a modular design with control and drive components installed directly on the machine's frame – or even on rotating parts. B&R combines maximum performance, extreme flexibility and real openness with IP65-rated ACOPOSremote servo drives and ACOPOSmotor motor-integrated servo drives, as well as the X67 series of machine-mountable I/O and safe I/O modules.
