New platform Beckhoff – proven solution partner SELMO Automation GmbH
Licensee SELMO Automation GmbH remains a proven partner
Since the first release version of the SELMO application, SELMO has been running on the innovative TwinCat software system from Beckhoff. Beckhoff is a specialist for PC- and EtherCAT-based automation technology and supplies universal, industry-independent control and automation solutions that are used worldwide in a wide range of vertical markets for industrial and process automation.
Since the beginning of the year, Beckhoff has not only shone with innovative products and solutions, but also with a new Internet presence for the world of automation. At www.beckhoff.com, partners and customers can find new features such as the customer portal or the user-friendly product finder. One thing has remained the same: Competent partners are integrated and presented digitally.
SELMO Automation GmbH, as the first SELMO licensee, has been a proven solution partner for successful, intelligent automation projects since its foundation and is represented on the platform.
Use case example: In cooperation with Beckhoff and the implementing SELMO Automation GmbH, the SELMO standard was able to transform a former risk machine into a reliable, resource-saving machine capable of stable digitisation all the way up into the business processes. Process instabilities were quickly identified. As a result, the line’s cycle time was quickly brought from 312 to 404 linear metres of output per hour. This meant an increase in throughput of over 25 per cent and many other benefits for the customer.
The ability of SELMOstudio to run on CODESYS, the manufacturer-independent IEC 61131-3 programming tool, is on the verge of a breakthrough. Continuation of the journey towards platform and hardware independence will follow soon!
We are also focusing on a new digital presentation. A website as a “Multisided Platform” is currently being developed.
