Cooperation with KEB Automation
KEB Automation, system provider in drive and automation technology, and the design and software specialist HMI Project will in future work together on a solution for innovative human machine interfaces for industrial applications. The new HMI management system enables both the simple and, above all, fast creation of web-based applications without programming knowledge as well as openness for customer-specific extensions. "In this strong partnership, both sides let their entire know-how flow into the development. Our goal is: maximum benefit with minimum effort for the user," says Curt Bauer, Managing Director Sales at KEB.
Just as a content management system radically simplifies the production of websites, the new HMI management system supports the creation of HMIs in a unique way and revolutionises the development workflow. Markus Buberl, Managing Director of HMI Project, says: "Our product is characterised by a high level of user-friendliness. The project templates we have designed guarantee high-quality design and fully automatic responsiveness on various end devices. Users of our system configure instead of programming." Uwe Huber, Head of HMI Development at KEB, adds: "Whether at the machine, on a tablet, smartphone or desktop - the HMI is immediately available everywhere. This makes the testing of machine functions much more flexible in practice."
KEB Automation offers the complete range of options for future-proof automation - from IIoT solutions HMIs to controllers and drives to motors, gearboxes and brakes and clutches. Family-run since 1972, the KEB Automation Group is active worldwide with over 1,500 employees in twelve subsidiaries and more than 50 partners (as of 2021).
