Why is Automation software more than PLC software?

Kollmorgen integrated automation software solutions combine together to produce more than the sum of their parts to fully address not just the needs of modern automation technology, but also providing real potential for lower engineering costs, reduced errors, less training and faster machine development timescales when compared to standard PLC software. Kollmorgen's innovative software solutions offer a variety of programming languages that cover every part of the machine from motion and machine interaction to set-up of the drive technology and the HMI interface with intuitive modules that work seamlessly together. As automated machine design develops, Kollmorgen multidisciplinary automation software gives you the edge you need.
