EDITORIAL It’s all about the connection Dear Readers No matter whether we are talking about advancing internationalization, the worldwide presence and cooperation between companies or communications in the field of installations and machines - the focus is always on connections. These are people who work with each other, machines that are in a collaborative connection to employees or, from a technical point of view, cables, lines or wireless solutions that transfer data or energy from A to B. You will come across connections in many places in this edition. Firstly, we present a company to you that works on international research projects: Ethernet Powerlink Standardization Group (EPSG). Since 2003 it has been advancing the further development of powerlink technology – one of the world’s most successful real-time capable industrial Ethernet Systems. Secondly, we report on companies, which are conquering new marketing in China, for example, and building on relationships here, too. It is also about connections from a technical point of view. Cables in energy chains or on robots supply installations and machine parts with energy, data and media. The article about the company igus will tell you what is important to consider here. Position sensors for conveyor technology are also very important for positioning containers at ports around the world. You can find out more about path coding systems from Pepperl+Fuchs. The country focus is on China, a country that fosters international relationships and that will be one of the future factors of success for automation technology. The IAS Industrial Automation Show (11-07 - 11-11-2017) trade fair will be held in conjunction with the ES Energy Show and the MWCS Metalworking and CNC Machine Tool Show. Together, the trade fairs generate a specialist audience of more than 120,000 visitors and thus make them an important event in China’s trade fair landscape.
