Rexroth 4EE
Integrated approach to automation energy efficiency

Reducing power consumption on machines, by focusing on just one axis or machine function at a time, can be an unproductive and narrow approach to energy efficiency. Bosch Rexroth has pioneered an approach called 4EE that focuses on four integrated principles that show how the right engineering concepts and systems, effectively applied, can deliver dramatic energy efficiency improvements. These 4 principles are: Energy Efficient Components, Energy Recovery, Energy On Demand, and Energy Efficient System Design.

Key Energy Efficiency Trend: Regenerative Drives

One energy-efficient technology gaining growing use in manufacturing and automation circles are regenerative drives. Instead of wasting electric energy when drives slow down or halt, the rotational motion is re-used to generate energy, which can be shared back into a machine’s power bus through bus sharing, reducing energy demand -- a technology Rexroth has been involved with developing and perfecting for more than 25 years.
