At this year's SPS IPC Drives fair, B&R will be presenting intelligent cameras, innovative lighting and advanced image processing algorithms. The comprehensive machine vision solution is seamlessly integrated in the B&R control system. Other highlights on display at the B&R booth (Hall 7 / Booth 206/114) include B&R's first cloud application for OEMs, safe human-track collaboration and robotics fully integrated in the B&R system.
B&R's first cloud application allows OEMs to collect data from their global fleet around the clock and view it in a convenient dashboard. They can use it to make well-targeted machine upgrades, offer next-level service and unlock new revenue streams. The cloud application indicates where maintenance is necessary and provides the basis for tailor-made maintenance service.
According to the company, B&R is the first manufacturer of intelligent track systems to introduce human-track collaboration. Five integrated safety functions allow humans to work directly alongside the track with no safety barriers - without impairing productivity.
Fully integrated robots live at the exhibition booth
B&R is expanding the range of robotics completely and seamlessly integrated in its automation landscape. At the B&R booth, visitors can see how openROBOTICS seamlessly integrates robots from different manufacturers into a B&R machine control system. The exhibited kinematics range from robots for pick-and-place applications to various 6-axis robots.
