BMW Group opts for Industrial PC technology

Beckhoff Automation, based in Verl, Germany, will supply the BMW Group with Industrial PC (IPC) technology for use in car manufacturing through 2030. According to the terms of the recently signed agreement, Beckhoff will supply the production facilities worldwide. This means that Beckhoff IPC technology will become a global standard for the BMW Group.

The Industrial PCs and multi-touch Control Panels will be used – both in new automotive manufacturing facilities and for retrofits – for machine connectivity, access control, data acquisition, visualization and other PC-based tasks. All product categories from the wide Industrial PC portfolio offered by Beckhoff will be used, including IP65-rated CP32xx Panel PCs, C6030 ultra-compact IPCs, C5240 19-inch slide-in IPCs and CP29xx multi-touch built-in Control Panels. Standard Beckhoff products will be used that have been adapted to some extent to ensure optimum retrofitting in existing plants and to include customer-specific key extensions.

The Beckhoff product portfolio offers the BMW Group the ability to use the latest Intel CoreTM processor series in a wide range of IPC form factors. On account of the rapid innovation cycles and interoperability within the portfolio, upcoming processor generations will be simple to integrate in the future as well. The bundling of all product development steps at Beckhoff, from IPC motherboard and BIOS development to mechanical adaptations, enables the adaptation to customer-specific requirements. In addition, the globally available services provided by Beckhoff ensure customer support at manufacturing facilities all over the world.
