Look and feel of user interface becomes main focus

July 30, 2021
Ubiquity of screens in daily lives creates need for fast, high-resolution screens in industrial world

Keith Moyer is vice president of sales at Weintek USA.

What are three key things that a machine builder, system integrator or manufacturer should know about your company?

Keith Moyer, vice president of sales, Weintek USA: Weintek USA is a technology-driven company. We are driven by having cutting edge human-machine interfaces and associated products. Our R&D team keeps consistently ahead of the competition with innovations such as high-definition, capacitive touch HMIs with programmable gesture control and the fastest processors available in an HMI; CoDeSys-enabled HMIs and PLCs; affordable and flexible remote I/O solutions; highly secure and affordable remote access; and innovative mobile access.

We are a true manufacturer. The automation space is rife with rebranding and a lack of transparency. We manufacture our products in our own factories. This puts us in control of our supply chain and in a good stock position here in the United States.

We are one of the largest HMI manufacturers in the world. Because of the large number of HMIs that we produce, economies of scale allow us to bring immense value to our customers.

What new technologies are driving your product development and why?

Keith Moyer, vice president of sales, Weintek USA: Everyone is focused on IIoT, and at Weintek USA we have been ahead of the curve there for years, but I think that the look and feel of a machine's user interface will be paramount in the coming years. The ubiquity of screens in our daily lives is leading to frustrations with slow, low-resolution HMIs in the industrial world. At Weintek USA we have introduced blazing fast HMIs with options for HD and capacitive touch that rival what we have all become used to in the commercial arena. Our industry is hungry for these technologies as machine builders seek to provide a topnotch user experience.

Looking into the future, how will technology change your company over the next five years? 

Keith Moyer, vice president of sales, Weintek USA: As a technology manufacturer, we are focused on providing our customers with cutting-edge technology at a great price. Because we have always pushed boundaries with our technology, we are well-equipped to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
