Beckhoff Live + Interactive

Digital offer for SPS 2021

Due to the high infection numbers with COVID-19, we unfortunately had to cancel our participation at the SPS exhibition in Nuremberg. With our livestream Beckhoff Live + Interactive, we have created an adequate virtual substitute to present to the public our many exciting innovations, technological evolutions from the fields of IPC, I/O, motion and automation, and – with our MX-System – even a revolution for automation without control cabinets.

Missed our daily entertaining technology livestreams or want to watch something in particular once again? You can access the recordings at any time in our media library.

Watch all recordings in the media center now: Beckhoff Live + Interactive
