Control cabinet-free automation for the woodworking industry


Plug-and-play for modular woodworking machines

Highly automated production lines in the woodworking and furniture manufacturing industries often take up a lot of space. The requisite control technology, which is usually housed in elaborately wired control cabinets, exacerbates this issue. Beckhoff comes to the rescue with its modular automation system with a high protection rating, from EtherCAT Box modules to the AMP and AMI distributed servo drive systems. The innovative MX-System takes a revolutionary approach to control cabinet-free machinery – because every control cabinet saved reduces space requirements, engineering and wiring costs.

We will demo all of the options at Ligna from May 15 to 19 in Hanover. Our seamless, system-integrated Vision portfolio, which includes everything from software and industrial camera systems to illumination, gives you an extra competitive edge.

We look forward to your visit in Hall 16, Booth C05.
