KEB Automation, system provider in drive and automation technology, and the design and software specialist HMI Project will work together on a solution for innovative Human Machine Interfaces for industrial applications. The new HMI management system enables both the simple and, above all, fast creation of web-based applications without programming knowledge as well as openness for customer-specific extensions. «In this strong partnership, both sides let their entire know-how flow into the development. Our goal is: maximum benefit with minimum effort for the user,» says Curt Bauer, CMO at KEB.
Just as a content management system radically simplifies the production of websites, the new HMI management system supports the creation of HMIs in a unique way and revolutionises the development workflow. Markus Buberl, Managing Director of HMI Project, says: «Our product is characterised by a high level of user-friendliness. The project templates we have designed guarantee high-quality design and fully automatic responsiveness on various end devices. Users of our system configure instead of programming.» Uwe Huber, Head of HMI Development at KEB, adds: «Whether at the machine, on a tablet, smartphone or desktop – the HMI is immediately available everywhere. This makes the testing of machine functions much more flexible in practice.»
KEB Automation offers the complete range of options for future-proof automation – from IIoT solutions, HMIs to controllers and drives to motors, gearboxes as well as brakes and clutches. Family-run since 1972, the KEB Automation Group is active worldwide with over 1,500 employees in twelve subsidiaries and more than 50 partners (as of 2021).
The Wuerzburg-based design and software specialist HMI Project celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. The 17-member team around the founders Markus Buberl and Christian Rudolph is particularly at home in the field of automation and mechanical engineering and has won several well-known industry awards.
