B&R will shares its expertise at LIGNA 2015 in wood-plastic composites (WPCs), which represent a promising market for the wood industry. The production of WPCs involves techniques such as extrusion and injection molding that are unconventional for wood processors. This is where B&R's customers in the wood industry stand to profit from B&R's many years of in-depth experience in plastics processing.

Programmable safety technology is no longer more expensive than a conventional safety relay. B&R's new safe I/O modules make programmable safety technology an economical solution even for woodworking applications on the smallest scale. These and other innovations will be on display in Hall 17 / Booth G14 at the Ligna trade fair from May 11-15 in Hanover.

Another way B&R can help its customers deal with cost pressure in the wood industry is with its compact controllers, which are designed to save space and optimize costs.

B&R's web terminals (Power Panel T-Series) and terminals featuring an integrated controller (Power Panel C-Series) are also perfect for the wood industry. The harsh production environments are no problem thanks to their IP65 protection.
