Powerful drives for the future
The road from the first PCs without a hard drive to today’s connected, mobile device platforms was a long one. The performance of central components such as processors and RAM had to be improved significantly and they had to be made more and more compact and energy-efficient. At the same time, the software became decoupled from the hardware and users could suddenly use a full range of new functions. Similar trends can be seen in the area of automation, and similar requirements apply to the central component in modern automation, namely the intelligent drive system.
Configuring automation solutions intuitively
Why study the portfolio first? Imaginative names for the various product families, various number codes for the different products: anyone who wants to put together an individual high-performance PC or notebook needs patience and should look at the product ranges from the various component manufacturers. With ctrlX AUTOMATION we have therefore gone a different way.
SHAPING THE SOLUTION
Software development is the key to delivering next generation solutions for mechanical engineering. But many of the challenges machine builders are currently facing can only be overcome through close collaboration. We spoke to Jyrki Anttonen, Technology Director at CIMCORP, about their decision to become a Lead Customer for ctrlX AUTOMATION.
