Beckhoff at Tire Technolgy Expo 2016

Welcome to the leading trade show for the tire manufacturing industry

At the Tire Technology Expo 2016 in Hanover, Beckhoff will present itself as a competent partner of the tire and rubber industries, offering PC-based automation solutions. High quality requirements with maximum production efficiency and increasing production globalisation are the key challenges this industry is faced with. The focus is therefore more and more on “Smart Factory” topics such as horizontal and vertical communication, Internet of Things, Big Data and integrated engineering. With the new software products TwinCAT IoT and TwinCAT Analytics, Beckhoff provides the core foundational technologies for cloud and Industrie 4.0 applications.

Use this upcoming opportunity to talk to our industry experts in Hall 20, Booth 3004.

Simple, open, HTML5-based: TwinCAT HMI

The new TwinCAT HMI ushers in a paradigm change in the field of HMI software: instead of using proprietary systems for engineering and communication and only with certain operating systems, Beckhoff employs IT standards such as Visual Studio® for the engineering, HTML5 for the design and Websockets and HTTPS for the secure communication. The user interface can be executed on any HTML5-capable browser, irrespective of operating system, resolution or display technology. TwinCAT HMI

PC-based control: Core technology for the Smart Factory

PC-based control from Beckhoff provides with open hardware and software interfaces and integrated communication from the sensor right into the cloud the ideal basis for the universal connectivity of the “Smart Factory”. PC-based control can be used for the seamless integration of machine modules into existing and new production systems alike. Changes in order planning or in the active production can be implemented directly. TwinCAT automation software provides the necessary modularity, object orientation and integrated engineering throughout the entire product life cycle.

TwinCAT solutions for IoT and Industrie 4.0

TwinCAT solutions for IoT and Industrie 4.0

In addition to conventional control tasks, TwinCAT also handles applications such as Big Data, data mining and condition or power monitoring, thus providing the basis for Industrie 4.0. The TwinCAT 3 IoT products within the TwinCAT Connectivity product family provide the user with various functions for exchanging process data over standardised communication protocols and for directly accessing the data and communication services of cloud service providers. TwinCAT IoT supports common protocols for cloud communication and “push messages” to smart devices. TwinCAT IoT is quick and easy to configure and, together with an Embedded PC as IoT controller, establishes a seamless connection between the Internet of Things and the Internet of Services.

Maximum operating comfort: The multi-touch Control Panel range

With a wide range of Panel PCs and Control Panels with multi-touch technology, Beckhoff supplies a universal, scalable and innovative operating concept for all operating tasks – from the machine to the control level. Display sizes from 7 to 24 inches and a range of options in terms of format, connection type and processor power offer users maximum diversity and flexibility. Customer-specific panel versions offer solutions exactly tailored to individual machine operating requirements. The multi-touch panel range is extended by Panel PC series with Intel® Atom™ multi-core processors in the built-in and the mounting arm versions with IP 65 protection rating.

Scalable and modular: Embedded PC control with multi-core processors

Embedded PCs from Beckhoff can be precisely scaled with regard to price, computing power and real-time performance. The CX5100 device series, which is based on latest generation Intel® Atom™ CPUs, makes multi-core technology available for controllers in the mid-performance class and lower price segment. The CX2000 Embedded PC series represents a high-performance controller with Intel® Core™ microarchitecture. In the four-core version it is suitable for computationally intensive applications such as the control of MATLAB®/Simulink® modules, for example. Embedded PCs
