Machine Automation Customizations: Three use cases
Customization is a key requirement in Automation. With the increasing demand for custom products and their life cycle becoming shorter and shorter, controllers and machines must be customizable and scalable.
Machines have to be designed for modularity and controllers need to be able to support different versions of a machine, from low end to high end. The most important thing is customization and KINGSTAR is a machine automation software platform, that has been designed specifically with customization in mind. In this webinar, we will list the most relevant customization types, describe the KINGSTAR platform and its unique features and then study three different use cases that show how KINGSTAR fits into the customization requirements.
