LYON, France, March 5th, 2019 – At the Global Industrie trade show in Lyon, France, Inovance, a leading international industrial automation group, will present advanced real-time machine control technology solutions. The solutions were made possible by Inovance's 2018 acquisition of Power Automation, a provider of PC-based CNC technology for machine tools with offices in France and Germany.
Inovance's market-leading servo package has been integrated with Power Automation's CNC technology to offer new real-time machine control capabilities. The CNC solution is based on an open IPC platform and uses EtherCAT fieldbus for real-time machine communication. The technology is designed to deliver maximum openness and has the flexibility to be applied to any industrial application.
At the Global Industrie show, Inovance is presenting a range of products for machine tools, including:
- The CNC Control STP220 – 21.5” touch panel with integrated controller
- Easy-to-use HMI and software for easy operation and programming of machines
- A complete range of servo drives and motors
- Modular and compact I/O modules with EtherCAT interface
Inovance, established in 2003 in Shenzhen, China, is undergoing rapid global expansion and has well-established facilities in India, South Korea, Turkey . The acquisition of Power Automation gives Inovance a firm European foothold with a network of European offices, factories and R&D facilities.
Frans van der Stel, General Manager at Inovance Technology Europe, says: “We are investing heavily in our European R&D facilities, and the expertise of our European engineering teams has enabled seamless integration of Inovance's servo hardware with Power Automation's CNC technology. The result is a real-time machine control solution designed in Europe for a European market. Our technology is Industry 4.0 ready because all process data is available in real-time from the CNC kernel. This ensures that, as customers implement Industry 4.0 principles in their factories, they will enjoy full access to all the data they need to constantly track, optimize and improve their operations.”
Cédric Pujols, Inovance's CNC Software Product Manager for Europe, adds:“Working with Inovance is about more than just products. We form long-term relationships with our customers, offering access to world-class, flexible manufacturing and R&D facilities, as well as highly skilled engineering and industry-sector specialists. Inovance's engineering teams are based across Europe, ensuring quick access to on-site technical support. Meanwhile, we guarantee rapid product availability by holding stock across Europe, and a buffer in every European Inovance facility.
