The 18th Tire Technology Expo will take place in Hannover from 20 to 22 February 2018.
The trend towards more complex machines with unchanged footprints goes hand-in-hand with the requirement to a more space-saving design of control cabinets. As a result, compact and modular control components are what’s now in demand. As an automation partner to the tire and rubber industry, Beckhoff has been following this path for some years now and is compressing more and more power into the smallest possible designs. With the ultra compact series, Beckhoff has developed a new generation of Industrial PCs with minimal space requirements and maximum application possibilities. EtherCAT P, the single-cable technology for the field level, and servomotors with One Cable Technology are following the same trend: developing space-saving, cost-effective components that reduce cabling effort and decrease the system footprint by making it possible to reduce the size of the switching cabinets. Optimised CPU cooling also decreases cooling requirements in the control cabinet, enabling increased energy efficiency.
Find out more about how you can optimise your operating costs and make your production more efficient with PC-based control technology from Beckhoff. We look forward to seeing you at our booth in Hall 20, Booth 3030.
