Fast response solutions at Hannover 13-17 April 2015

B&R to showcase safety technology

B&R will be showcasing programmable safety technology at Hannover Messe which will be held from 13 to 17 April 2015

B&R will be showcasing programmable safety technology with fast response times at Hall 9 Stand D28 at Hannover Messe which will be held from 13 to 17 April 2015. With this advancement, B&R is extending the use of reACTION technology into the area of safety-critical applications. This technology makes it possible for time-critical subprocesses to be executed directly in the I/O modules, which enables drastic reductions in response times. Moreover, no expensive special hardware is needed to use reACTION technology, and programming is just as easy as it is for conventional control solutions.

Another technology developed by B&R also saves time mapp technology, with its networked and flexible function blocks, makes it possible to reduce the time needed to develop application software by an average of 67%. The 70 mapp components were presented in the fall of 2014. Now, B&R is planning to introduce an additional 30 functions at the Hannover Messe.

Flexibility and openness

Smart factories require additional flexibility across all plant systems, which goes hand-in-hand with the digitalization of information exchanged between all networked equipment, explains Markus Sandhoefner, general manager of B&R Germany. The scalability+ concept allows our customers to successfully implement these changes quickly and easily. Flexibility and openness have been buzzwords for automation solutions at B&R for decades. The end result is the utilization of fewer resources, increased productivity and the possibility of manufacturing individual products.

India is working hard to join the ranks of the industrialized countries, which means that rapid progress in the production and services sector is essential, says PV Sivaram, general manager of B&R India. In order to handle the rapidly growing domestic market and aid expansion, India is not only planning massive investments in infrastructure, but also substantially upgrading existing production capacity. The market for automation technology is expected to grow exponentially, says Sivaram. B&R India is ready to meet these needs.

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 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.
