  • 21.08.2013


This highly practical seminar with supporting table top exhibition addresses the key issues arising from the use of PROFIBUS and PROFINET in automated manufacturing and advanced engineering applications.


Covering key application areas such as packaging, printing, electrical and electronics assembly, robotics, automotive engineering, drives, mechanical handling and logistics, control systems and energy management, the seminar focuses on the practical aspects of using PROFIBUS and PROFINET in factory automation applications from system design and safety considerations through to maintenance and fault-finding.


Supported by demonstrations of actual tools used in configuration and maintenance, the seminar will be of great value to Designers, Production Engineers and System Engineers involved in design, operation and maintenance of modern automated factories and machinery.
