Simplifies the engineering: PC-based control with an integrated tool chain for PLC, HMI and IoT.
With “Integrated Manufacturing” as its lead theme, Ligna 2017 in Hanover documents how woodworking machinery can directly profit from Industrie 4.0 and IoT applications. All basic technologies involved come from Beckhoff: as an open control concept, PC-based control simplifies machine engineering. With Beckhoff, it is possible to realise all major machine functions with an integrated hardware and software platform: TwinCAT is the tool chain optimised for mechanical engineering, using which the PLC programmer can program and/or parameterise even such applications as HMI, IoT communication and cloud-based analytics.
In Hall 16, Booth C05, you can expect to see a variety of new technologies designed to simplify your production. The Beckhoff Wood industry experts look forward to seeing you there!
Simplified Industrie 4.0 implementation. With end-to-end connected production.
Increase production efficiency with cloud-based automation
PC-based control makes it easy to transfer functions to the cloud and to integrate cloud services.
TwinCAT IoT: for simple cloud communication
