Plug-and-play using OPC UA
Interface modeled by cab for robotics operations of tomorrow
Karlsruhe, Germany | January 24, 2022
Smart systems and components that handle workflows in which embedded processors, sensors and network technology are included: cab has been pursuing this concept for many years. Development and manufacture activities are focused accordingly, so are commercial processes. cab has just digitally modeled an interface to enable current cab label printing systems be used immediately in automation and robotics solutions.
cab printers are therefore integrated to the XITO software provided by Toolify, a startup company based in Southern Germany. The printers thus comply with other modules of the XITO marketplace kit. Individual integration to process technology can be realized cost-effectively and just requires plug-and-play, that is, minimum effort.
"With the help of XITO, developing individual modules accelerates by up to 30 percent. Robots or applications are implemented up to 95 percent more efficiently", says Roman Schnider, Head of cab Software Development. He introduces the solution in a video (German only): www.cab.de/robotic
cab is Europe’s biggest manufacturer of label printing systems. The range of devices includes solutions for marking individual components, units, products or packaging. Healthy global growth, pioneering technologies, products designed according to the needs of operators and the competent support of all customers are prior goals of the company. Employees at locations in eight countries and more than 800 distribution and service partners around the globe are there to meet the targets.
