B&R’s flexible transport system at Hannover Messe
B&R’s new flexible transport system is designed to deliver ultimate production effectiveness – from mass production down to batches of one. Playing a pivotal role in making this possible are the system’s purely electromagnetic diverters, which are able to divide and merge product flows at full production speed. B&R will be presenting its transport system from April 23-27 at the Hannover Messe in Hall 9, Booth D26.
The B&R booth will also showcase how OPC UA TSN makes it possible to implement advanced manufacturing concepts with seamless connectivity from the field level up to ERP systems. Another Industrial IoT highlight will be B&R’s Orange Box solution.
Optimising data mgmt with mapp
It is now easier than ever to implement databases in applications. With mapp Database, it is possible to archive data directly from the field level to database, regardless of whether that database is located on site or in the cloud. This drastically simplifies the management of large volumes of data. Manufacturing machinery generates huge volumes of data, which must then be visualised, archived or passed on to higher-level systems. Giving mapp functions a database interface makes it possible to send data directly from the controller to databases, where it can be processed or archived. Commonly used database functions, such as stored procedures, allow KPIs to be generated as needed, resulting in a cockpit for optimising manufacturing processes. mapp Database can be connected to any mapp component that saves or reads data.
