4. December 2018 - The EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) announces that Dmitry A. Dzilno of Applied Materials has been selected by the assembled representatives of the ETG member in the post companies. He succeeds Erich Hutflesz of the Schuler Group, which has been a member of ETG's Board of Directors since 2005.
During the SPS IPC Drives 2018, the ETG held its general assembly with board elections. Erich Hutflesz has contributed to the development of ETG for 13 years as a member of the Management Board. During this time ETG has grown from 241 to more than 5,000 members. EtherCAT has been a champion since the beginning. The outgoing ETG board member now oversees the functional safety of hydraulic presses at Schuler Pressen GmbH - originally an EtherCAT pilot project - and is therefore no longer available for a new term of office. The general assembly decided to honor Erich Hutflesz with an honorary membership of ETG for his many years of service.
Dmitry A. Dzilno of Applied Materials (AMAT) has been elected as the successor to Hutflesz on the Board of Directors. Head of Control Technology for the Platform Engineering Division, Dzilno recognized the exciting potential that EtherCAT provided to the semiconductor industry early on and made AMAT one of the founding members of ETG in 2003. Dzilno has made EtherCAT a fieldbus in chip manufacturing. He currently serves as Managing Director and Senior Technical Officer at AMAT, where he heads the Engineering Division of the ALD Division.
Dr. Peter Heidrich, professor of engineering at the Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences, and Martin Rostan, executive director of the ETG, reiterated that they should continue their role in the board of directors during the general meeting.
The ETG Board of Directors decides on the approval of all new members of the organization, installs working groups and committees and decides on policies and rules, including protocol compliance and interoperability of EtherCAT devices. In addition, the Board will host the annual General Assembly, conduct its decisions and monitor the evolution of EtherCAT technology.Did you like this article?
