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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
