Automation Partner for Pharma Industry to Build Smart Machines

B&R displaying automation & Industrial IoT solutions at P-MEC 2017

In order to comply with their regulations, pharmaceutical industries must take on the challenge of guaranteeing product safety while improving efficiency and productivity at the same time. This year’s P-MEC will take place from November 28-30. In Hall 6, Booth H66, B&R will be highlighting various automation and Industrial IoT solutions for building smart machines along with its modular, flexible hardware and software solutions for pharmaceutical industry.

Audit trails made easy

The food and pharmaceutical industries need to log operations performed by users without the risk of them being tampered with. B&R mapp Technology provides a quick and easy way to implement and customize audit trails. Machine builders thus obtain various benefits and achieve compliance with FDA CFR 21 Part 11 using a controller instead of using a dedicated SCADA system. Machine builders and factory operators benefit from maximum security without altering anything in the control system. With B&R solutions, machine builders achieve accelerated development and reduce investment risk for applications subject to the FDA’s Title 21 CFR Part 11 requirements. The ability to retrace actions performed on a machine can also be of great service to its manufacturer in the event of warranty claims.

HMI design has never been so easy

mapp View, which offers access to web technology, will be another highlight at the exhibition. It allows developers to create powerful web-based user interfaces right from the engineering environment without any knowledge of web technology. mapp View relies 100% on web standards to ensure that content can be viewed optimally on any output device or even customized for specific users or user groups.

Industrial IoT ready

Whether visitors are starting a greenfield project or considering a brownfield upgrade, they will find a smart manufacturing solution that perfectly fits their needs at the B&R booth. To remain competitive in era of IoT, implementation of digital transformation is necessary. B&R offers complete hardware and software solutions, comprehensive service and expertise in automation, and the digitalization of machinery and equipment. With dedicated technology and global communication standards like OPC UA, B&R is the right partner for implementing Industrial IoT solutions in both new and legacy equipment.
