Beckhoff at Pack Expo 2017

Multitasking automation hardware and software for packaging machines

Beckhoff Automation will continue to showcase new, system-integrated solutions for IIoT and Industrie 4.0 this year at Pack Expo Las Vegas. Advanced IoT hardware and software technologies from Beckhoff will demonstrate practical Smart Factory concepts for the packaging industry. From new machine designs to retrofits, system-integrated hardware and software technologies are available for secure connectivity from sensor to cloud. Additional Smart Factory solutions will factor heavily in the Beckhoff booth, such as One Cable Automation via EtherCAT P, which integrates power and signal lines into a single, standard 4-wire Ethernet cable. The latest motor and drive solutions with One Cable Technology (OCT) will also be shown with demos and test stands for hands-on evaluation.

Fast, easy and adaptable: TwinCAT HMI.

With TwinCAT HMI software, Beckhoff has ushered in the next generation of HMIs for all kinds of screens, from industrial displays to mobile devices. Instead of using proprietary systems for engineering and communications, Beckhoff relies on IT standards such as Visual Studio® for engineering, HTML5 for design, plus TLS for secure communications. The user interface runs on any HTML5-enabled browser, regardless of operating system, resolution or display type.

High-end measurement technology for packaging machinery: the EtherCAT measurement modules.

With the new ELM series EtherCAT I/O modules, high-end measurement technology becomes an system-integrated part of PC-based control. The new EtherCAT measurement modules can be directly integrated into the modular EtherCAT Terminal system. Robust metal housings offer optimized shielding and cooling for measurement applications as well as increased flexibility with regard to interfaces, such as for LEMO or BNC connectors.

Meet the smallest Industrial PC from Beckhoff: the C6015.

Meet the smallest Industrial PC from Beckhoff: the C6015.

Beckhoff has changed the game yet again with another redefinition of the “compact Industrial PC”. With minimized dimensions of just 82 x 82 x 40 mm and flexible installation options, the C6015 opens up new fields of application for packaging machine control. Equipped with an integrated Intel® Atom™ CPU with up to four cores, the fanless device provides high performance reserves.

  • extreme space-savings
  • high performance at low cost
  • Intel® Atom™ CPU with up to 4 cores with 1.91 GHz
  • flexible installation options
  • wide operating temperature range

Cloud connectivity in automation optimizes packaging operations.

Beckhoff has you covered whether you need to gather and store process data, integrate condition monitoring or implement track & trace functions in your packaging machinery: With TwinCAT IoT and TwinCAT Analytics, your packaging machine directly benefits from Industrie 4.0 and IoT applications. Engineering efficiency is greatly increased because the software packages share the universal platform as all other packaging machine programming tools from Beckhoff, including PLC, motion control, safety, HMI, robotics/kinematics and much more.

  • TwinCAT IoT: for simple cloud communication
  • TwinCAT Analytics: for the analysis of process data in the cloud
