SPS IPC Drives

Hall 7, Booth 450

Experience Connected Automation!

Nuremberg will become the center of the automation industry from November 28 to 30 when the SPS IPC Drives 2017 opens its doors. Visit us in hall 7, booth 450 and discover our complete IoT-capable automation platform under the banner of Connected Automation.

This also includes the latest versions of our software and engineering platform, IndraWorks, as well as a completely new product family with industrial PCs and HMIs. You also have numerous other highlights to look forward to from our range of drive and control technology and motors:

  • MTX – the CNC system solution with enhanced software functions for efficient machining and forming
  • MLC – the motion control solution with new functions for robotics, PLC and machine safety
  • An extended range of motors – self-cooled linear motors from the ML3 series as well as new versions of the servo motors MS2N and MS2E
  • PRC 7000 – the IoT-capable resistance welding control: highly efficient and reliable
  • Services – best-in-class support: from the service app to 360° consulting
