The designer can implement completely new functions via the control technology without changing the basic design of the machine hardware. On the coming FMB - Subcontracting Engineering from the 6. to 8. November 2013 in Bad Salzuflen (organizer: Clarion Events) gives designers, purchasers and other decision-makers in mechanical engineering the opportunity to find out about the latest control architectures, to get to know new products and to talk to exhibitors about current trends.
Whether central or decentralized control concept as PLC or PC-based with Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet / IP, ModbusTCP or other communication protocols: At the trade fair, visitors can find out about new developments in their system world. Many of the major suppliers of industrial control technology have registered this year - including Beckhoff, B & R, Festo, Mitsubishi Electric and Siemens. However, numerous specialists for individual technologies, user industries and product areas will also be exhibiting at the Bad Salzuflen exhibition center - for example Betron Control (individually developed control solutions), Igas (servo technology and motion control), Lohmeier (control cabinets) and Weigert Elektronik (control cabinet construction and cable assembly).
Also adjacent product areas such as man-machine interfaces and machine safety are represented at the fair, as well as qualified service providers who support the machine builder in the development and realization of the optimal control concept.
A first-hand insight into the future of control technology is provided by the "IT's OWL - Intelligent Technical Systems" excellence cluster sponsored by the Federal Government, in which 174 companies and organizations are working on the automation concepts of tomorrow. The cluster will be presenting the results of the research work at a joint stand ,
