During February and March 2008, Bosch Rexroth will be holding a number of Machine Automation Training Days throughout the UK and Ireland. Aimed at engineers who design or build industrial machines, the Machine Automation Training Days will demonstrate how to reduce costs, reduce risk and simplify machine automation through the use of new ideas.
As part of its ongoing commitment to providing best-in-class after-sales customer service, Bosch Rexroth has developed a range of effective training programmes. Delegates attending the Machine Automation Training Days will find out first-hand about the IEC 61131 standard and how its implementation can be optimised. They will also learn how to make machine design simple by integrating motion and control through PLCOpen motion control and applying Rexroth's IndraLogic PLC technology to enable their business to become more competitive. This programme also runs through some straightforward steps that can be taken to save time and money when designing, building and maintaining machines, thereby avoiding the associated unscheduled downtime and stoppages.
Each attendee will receive a complimentary IEC 61131 PLC starter pack from Rexroth. Hardware contained within the pack includes Rexroth's IndraLogic L10 compact PLC with integrated Ethernet interface, plus an IndraLogic IO 16/16 input module and output module. This is bundled with Rexroth's IEC 61131-3 programming package with Ladder, Structured Text, Instruction List, Sequential Function Chart and Function Block Diagram editors, along with WinStudio to create a complete SCADA/HMI interface.
The free Machine Automation Training Days will be held at Bosch Rexroth's sites in Cardiff, Cirencester, Bradford and St Neots, as well as additional locations in Livingston and Port Laoise, Ireland. To find out more and to reserve a place, visit www.boschrexroth.co.uk/changethemarket.
