Machine builders realize that scalable architecture is a key differentiator that allows them to improve productivity while reducing their total cost to design, develop and deliver machines with optimal performance. A panel of global OEMs will explain how their investment in Integtrated Architecture allows them to successfully address discrete, motion, safety, process and batch control; differentiate their machines from competitors, and allow more time to plan new machine designs. They will also discuss how the future of Integrated Architecture will change how they design, develop and deliver a machine solution and the impact it will have on their business.

The moderator of this discussion is Christopher Zei, vice president, OEM Solutions, Rockwell Automation. The panelists are CP Fang, vice president, Crown Machinery (Taiwan); Carlos Hernandez, automation business director, Silos y Camiones S.A. (SyCSA) (Mexico); Roman Kaiser, president, Grenzebach Automation GmbH (Germany); Andy Pringle, engineering leader, Paper Converting Machine Company (U.S.); Mike Sweet, manager corporate controls, First Solar (U.S.).
