It’s now easier than ever for B&R customers to design their machines and systems using CAD programmes. B&R’s web configurator allows you to generate CAD data for hundreds of thousands of motors, gearboxes and motor-gearbox combinations – which can then be used in all common CAD programmes. Detailed and accurate CAD data is a key element in the design of modern, high-performance machines. Having design data that accurately reflects the hardware helps avoid the need for later design changes and prevents unnecessary wear and tear. The CAD configurator on the B&R website allows you to select all the optional features, such as cooling type, size, encoder system, connectors, shaft construction and bearings.

This ensures that the machine builder has all the data for the motor being used. The CAD data can be exported in any of the formats used by the most common CAD systems either in 2D, 3D or as a dimensional drawing. There is also an option to include a data sheet for the motor with the exported data. The CAD configurator is currently available for 8LS and 8JS servo motors as well as gearboxes and motor-gearbox combinations. Additional motor series will be added over the next few months.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
