EMO 2011 in Hanover: PC-based control – the scalable complete CNC package

At the EMO 2011, which took place from 19 to 24 September in Hanover, Beckhoff presented its complete package of scalable CNC control solutions for machine tools. The world‘s leading trade fair for the machine tool industry impressed this year with a strong increase in internationality and a total of approximately 140,000 visitors from over 100 countries. 2037 exhibitors from 41 countries presented their solutions for the metalworking sector at the EMO. Around 40 % of these were from foreign countries. The Beckhoff trade fair booth also attracted numerous visitors, who showed great interest in the PC- and EtherCAT-based Beckhoff CNC solution.

Beckhoff clearly demonstrated its versatility at the EMO. An efficient control solution is provided for every task. Complex control and drive technology from Beckhoff is in great demand, as is the open control platform for the integration of customer-specific functionalities. Condition Monitoring also represented a further central part. In this segment Beckhoff offers fast, high-performance processor monitoring. In addition, the trade fair appearance also focused on the new software generation TwinCAT 3, which makes more efficient engineering possible, e.g. by the integration of C-code into the CNC.

“The EMO 2011 fulfilled our expectations in every respect. The trade fair clearly showed that Beckhoff is regarded also by the classic machine tool industry as an innovative and high-performance automation manufacturer. The trade fair was also a complete success for us internationally”, says Frank Saueressig, CNC Product Manager at Beckhoff, summing up the EMO 2011.
