Beckhoff at SPS IPC Drives 2017

Experience the full range of PC-based automation:
on an area of 1,800 m².

Welcome to SPS IPC Drives 2017: in Nuremberg, Beckhoff will be presenting all the products and systems in its range of PC-based and EtherCAT-based control technology in five technology forums. Consolidating control intelligence in software, PC-based control incorporates all functions – PLC, motion control, IoT and more – within a single platform. This year’s trade show presence will focus on the integration of image processing, process technology and high-precision measurement technology into the central control system.

The Beckhoff team is looking forward to see you at Booth 406.
