The road to the smart factories, networked machines and efficient processes of Industry 4.0 leads through uncharted territory. With the innovations and updates B&R will be presenting at the 2016 Hannover Messe (Hall 9, Booth D28), the automation specialists offer a vision and a roadmap to get there quickly, smoothly and sustainably.
With a host of new mapp components, B&R continues to lead the way in modular, fast and secure programming for intelligent, fully networked machines and plants. The new mapp Codebox, for example, allows machine functions to be added or modified without having to reopen the original project in a development tool.
Web meets automation
The new 100% web-based HMI solution – mapp View – offers all the functionality you’ll need for human-machine communication in tomorrow’s smart factory. Automation engineers can easily create user interfaces that display perfectly on any device or operating system.
B&R will also be presenting new functions for its ACOPOS P3 servo drives and other solutions on the topics of Industry 4.0 and predictive maintenance.
