Creating value: With PC-based control from Beckhoff

Ligna 2017 came to a successful close on 26 May of this year. In keeping with the motto of “Creating value”, Beckhoff demonstrated the many and varied advantages of an integrated control system for woodworking machines at their tradeshow booth: From operation and maintenance to engineering, the field connection and the IoT connection, the integrated control solution from Beckhoff simplifies all processes, delivering the optimal platform for driving integrated manufacturing strategies in line with Industrie 4.0. “With PC-based control, mechanical engineers are able to take advantage of an end-to-end tool chain for PLC, HMI and IoT. This means that all machine functions can be realised on the basis of a consistent hardware and software platform, which simplifies engineering overall,” explains Stefan Sieber, Beckhoff Business Manager for the woodworking machines industry.
