Information from the event organisers


The showcase will offer you the opportunity to sample all of the topics and solutions that Phoenix Contact provide. You can then choose the topics for your very own workshop, made relevant to your business needs.


Smart Networks

Switches, access points and security routers for cyber security to build powerful Ethernet networks. Phoenix Contact will show how it can help machine builders to improve the reliability and cycle times of machines with robust communication technology.


Consistent configuration and marking with Project Complete supports the entire control cabinet manufacturing process, taking data from CAE programs. Try out some easy to use marking systems – from the hand held Thermofox to the new Bluemark ID Colour printer. There is nothing in a control cabinet or machine Phoenix Contact can’t mark!

Best Switching

Discover a wide range of switching devices by Phoenix Contact, from relay systems to hybrid motor starters. These products offer the machine builder excellent time savings, easy handling, space savings and high system availability.

Strategic Outsourcing

Discover how PP Control & Automation can help machine builders to optimise their machine production, unlock growth potential, reduce lead times, increase efficiency and reduce costs so that resources can be concentrated on what’s really important and what is core competency within that business.

An increasing number of OEMs choose strategic outsourcing as part of their overall production and supply chain strategy. This allows them to delegate non-core activities to organisations that specialise in those activities, giving them time to focus on their core competencies such as; product innovation, research and development, sales and marketing.
