Focus on network communication

Machine control

For the control of individual machines, we rely on PLC, programmable logic controllers by Siemens or Allen Bradley which in turn are linked up with servo controls as part of a network. That way, positionable axes can be operated with a high degree of dynamics and precision while retaining very short cycle times.

For network communication, we employ PROFIBUS, PROFINET and ETHERNET with TCP/IP. That way, line PC and PLC can be coordinated.
