Brabender Technologie GmbH & Co. LG unveiled new equipment and software applications at K 2019.
The company, based in Duisburg, Germany, manufactures equipment for bulk material weighing, feeding, discharging, controlling and flow metering.
"Our new OPC-UA interface is a step towards Industry 4.0," Managing Director Gunter Kuhlmann said. "OPC-UA means improved industrial communication. This interface transmits process and control data in a service-oriented architecture which opens up new possibilities for our customers."
The expansion to upstream machines is now available in the feeder control and the OP16 control unit.
Also at K, Brabender launched a FiberXpert fiber feeder for running lower feed rates, and two completely revised feeder models, the DSR28 and DDSR20. They have a new type of gearbox, and many other components that allow easy operation without tools.
