Productivity plus for machine tools: PC-based control

EMO, the world’s leading trade fair for metalworking and production technology in Hanover, Germany, came to a successful close after its six-day run on September 23, 2017. More than 130,000 visitors were able to obtain comprehensive information from more than 2,200 exhibitors about the possibilities of digitisation and networking in manufacturing, in particular. This guiding theme was also one of the focal points at the Beckhoff booth, as Frank Saueressig, Product Manager CNC, explains: “Our products and solutions for cloud-based automation were shown as they can be used on a machine tool. Another main topic concerned the new opportunities made available by PC-based control, from all-in-one TwinCAT CNC to highly scalable drive technology, to increase machine productivity.”
