At the exhibition, B&R will be presenting new packages of IoT solutions for existing machinery. Orange Box enables machine operators to collect and analyze data from previously isolated machines and lines and get them fi t for the smart factory

B&R will be presenting ‘Automation solutions for every step towards Industrial IoT’ at its stand S1 in Hall 1 of the Automation Expo 2017 at the BEC in Mumbai. At the exhibition, B&R will be showcasing its Orange Box as well as other allied solutions, which make machines and factories smart and help to achieve operational excellence. The Orange Box enables factories and plants to fully transform into smart manufacturing set-ups and also connect their obsolete and digitally isolated machines.

Orange Box — Manufacturing intelligence for brownfield

The Orange Box is entirely flexible and modular. To collect and analyze basic operating data, all one needs is a 25-millimeter wide compact PLC and the software component mapp OEE. For more advanced features, such as alarm management or energy monitoring, the solution can easily be scaled up with more powerful PLCs and additional software components. To give the Orange Box a modern user interface in addition to PLC functionality, a Power Panel or a Panel PC can be used.

SuperTrak — Next generation industrial transport

Another highlight at the booth will be B&R’s SuperTrak, which is dependable, precise and requires remarkably low maintenance; it enables agile, efficient production at any batch size. Programming takes place in the Automation Studio software development environment. SuperTrak has been specially developed for 24/7 operation in harsh industrial environments. The system is reliable, safe and remarkably service-friendly. Individual segments and shuttles can easily be replaced without having to disassemble the track. This results in a very low mean repair time and increases the productivity of the entire plant. Like all B&R products, SuperTrak is fully integrated in B&R automation solutions. This high degree of integration eliminates system discontinuities and opens up all options when putting together a complete system.

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.
