The Newest and Latest with SERCOS

There has been a lot happening in the SERCOS world recently. As SERCOS members, we are closely tied to the association and, therefore, are excited for all of the great things that have been coming out of that area. Not only was there the recent SERCOS PlugFest event, but we are also excited about the annual meeting and Board of Directors announcement.

SERCOS N.A. Member Meeting

The meeting, held June 17th and hosted by Bosch Rexroth, took members through the latest in the SERCOS world. First, there was a review of what has happened since the last member meeting, and then into the nitty-gritty of the association. SERCOS’ Managing Director Peter Lutz discussed the newest developments in the software and association as a whole. Then, there was a look at SERCOS North America, specifically at the past promotional and marketing activities, promotion plans moving forward, and administrative and management reports. As members, at any point in time, we have the opportunity to submit topics for review.

New Board of Directors

SERCOS recently announced their newest board of directors. The new board now includes Dr. Thomas Burger of Bosch Rexroth, Klaus Weyer of Schneider Electric Automation, Professor Alexander Verl of Fraunhofer Institute, and Matheus Bulho from Rockwell Automation. At the official meeting when the announcement was made, attendees were also privy to new technological development of the SERCOS software. According to a SERCOS press release, Lutz said, “Strong growth in the spectrum of manufacturers and providers accelerates the implementation of innovative automation concepts and is, as the same time, proof of the high level of acceptance of SERCOS in machine and systems engineering.”

As a company with strong ties to SERCOS, we are always excited to be a part of their events and hear about the latest news and developments. With that said, we are looking forward to what’s next!
