PLCopen has a booth in hall W02, # B 001 and the Managing Director Eelco van der Wal will attend. Come and meet him there.

 

On November 6 there will be a PLCopen Conference. This conference will give an excellent overview on how PLCopen and its members can help users to be more effective in their market.

In addition we are planning an interactive PLCopen Motion Control – Live Seminar on the same day. PLCopen will do a short introduction on Motion Control and show one or two basic examples (e.g. for labelling) and then the attendees can continue live on the different systems from the different suppliers that are spread around the room. Experts from the participating companies (PLCopen members) are available to respond to your questions during the whole seminar.

 

The PLCopen Conference starts at 09:30 on November 6 and the PLCopen Motion Control – Live Seminar starts at 13:30.

3. Report on PLC market in China in English language

 

China is an interesting country. It is the 2nd largest economy in the world. However, for many people China is not very transparent. Nor are the Chinese statistics for them. Therefore one would like to have the story behind the figures or a second opinion on them.

 

For this reason PLCopen has teamed with a market research company China Automation Media, to make their extensive report on industrial control available in the English language and accessible to non-Chinese people.  This report issued in 2013, covering 150 pages, shows in-depth values of the following sections:

Overview of the domestic market

User behavior analysis

Application industry analysis covering 8 industries and 9 OEM markets

Overview of the international manufacturers, covering 9 extensively

Overview of the domestic PLC Manufacturers, covering 16 in total

PLC market expectations and development trends, long term and short term

 

An extensive Table of Content of this report is available on the PLCopen website.

The cost of this report is US$ 4,000 excl. VAT. You can order this report via wendelien@PLCopen.org.

PACK EXPO International introduces the co-location of Pharma EXPO, which PMMI is producing in partnership with the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE). PMMI and ISPE anticipate the two events together will draw 2,200 exhibitors and 50,000 attendees in 1.15 million net square feet of exhibit space, stretching across McCormick Place’s Lakeside, North, South and West Halls. The tradeshow takes place at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, USA, and runs November 2-5.
