At Excon 2017, B&R will present a condition monitoring solution for mobile applications. The X90 controller with integrated condition monitoring allows operators of construction, agriculture & off-highway machinery to continuously monitor the health of their equipment

Innovative solutions for a technology craving industry
Faced with unrelenting demands for higher productivity, the agricultural and construction industries are turning to increasingly automated and networked machinery. B&R solutions allow automation concepts for construction equipment and municipal vehicles as well as for agriculture and forestry applications to be implemented easier than ever. Customers will benefit from an easy-to-operate development environment, high-performance real-time operating system and ready-made software components.

The modular X90 control and I/O system
B&R will open up new possibilities in mobile automation with its innovative X90 product line for mastering mobile control and I/O tasks. The comprehensive set of standardized components is perfect for implementing flexible automation concepts. The heart of the X90 system is a controller with a powerful ARM processor and 48 multifunction I/O channels. Basic features include interfaces for CAN, USB, Ethernet and the real-time POWERLINK bus system.

Maximum flexibility, protection and integration
The extremely robust cast aluminum housing provides space for up to four expansion cards. This makes it possible to add additional I/O channels, interfaces and even a complete safety controller with safe I/O. All products in the X90 family are designed for use in harsh industrial environments. They can handle operating temperatures from -40 to 85°C as well as strong vibrations or shocks in addition to being resistant to salt, UV light and oil. The X90 system offers modular and hardware-independent software development using modular software blocks, which greatly reduce software development times and ensure software reusability. Safety technology and extensive troubleshooting options are also fully integrated in the B&R system and available to X90 users without limitations.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
