POWERLINK & Partners Successful on European Tour

(PresseBox) (Eggelsberg, )
About 1,000 machinery, plant, system and component designers attended the European Industrial Ethernet Conferences 2011 at 11 venues in five European countries. Organized by B&R, Stäubli, Cognex and ASCO Numatics together with the Ethernet POWERLINK Standardization Group (EPSG), the final conference was held on November 16, 2011. Information centered on how stable and solidly integrated interaction between industrial robots, image processing, fluid and control technologies can substantially improve automation performance and open up new possibilities.

The potential of POWERLINK and openSAFETY for performance improvement and cost reduction were topical in the keynote delivered by EPSG chairman, Stefan Schönegger. How POWERLINK helps integrate the core technologies of industrial automation to form comprehensive solutions was illustrated by representatives of the organizing companies in their presentations and exhibits.

Presentations by independent experts such as Stefan Krug from the Institute of Assembly Machinery and Business Management at the Munich University of Technology (TU Munich) regarding Plug & Produce robot plants and Dr. Peter Wratil of Innotec GmbH regarding ways to implement the new machine directive and its subordinated standards were especially well received.
