Intelligent and scalable CNC controls combined with, high-performance electric and hydraulic drive technologies by Bosch Rexroth improve the productivity and precision of your machine — across all cutting and forming applications. Rexroth offers proven technology; industry-specific control functions; and more user-friendly, open programming tools that help optimize your machining time and improve operational flexibility and precision production.
You will find cutting-edge CNC platforms with integrated safety and advanced automation technologies engineered to solve the toughest machining challenges at IMTS 2014 in Chicago, IL, Booth E-5283, September 8-13, 2014.
To demonstrate how our award-winning Open Core Engineering system offers greater freedom for programming machining solutions, we will have a special exhibit: Booth visitors can have their business card etched in metal on a specially designed machine tool. Real-time machining visualization on a handheld tablet connected by wireless Ethernet demonstrates real-time machining monitoring, one example using the innovative Open Core Interface with the IndraMotion MTX CNC platform.
As you watch your business card rendered into metal, get complete details on the freedom and flexibility Open Core Engineering offers automation programmers. More on OCE
IndraMotion MTX is a comprehensive family of machine tool controls that provide open, scalable, CNC platforms to satisfy your most demanding cutting, forming and machining applications. The newest platform version features the multi-core hardware CML 85, which supports 60 parallel NC-channels and control of up to 99 axes (up from 12 channels and 64 axes). In addition, the machine builder using IndraMotion MTX can now take advantage of simplified wiring of safety devices by using CIP Safety on Sercos (CSos) with the IndraDrive and PROFIsafe over Profibus DP. Distributed safety control is also available using Safe Logic compact (SLc) as a Sercos device with safety network to the IndraDrive over the common Sercos Ethernet cable.
Featuring a wide range of performance data and reporting functions, and the use of open standards, IndraMotion MTX lets you scale from individual machine control to a complete, networked system for large-scale production. IndraMotion MTX offers multiple platforms so you can build the best CNC solution for your operations. Additional information on IndraMotion MTX
The new IMS-I is an integrated measuring system that combines highly rigid Rexroth ball rail and roller rail systems with an incremental length measuring system. It offers the measurement accuracy comparable to high-precision glass scales, making it ideally suited for use in external measuring systems on machine tools.
Key benefits include:
Machines must not constitute a hazard to people. We help manufacturers and machine users protect people and machines in a standard-compliant and economical manner. Integrating safety into our IndraDrive platforms enable movement to be monitored where it is generated, for extremely short reaction times and a simpler safety architecture.
Bosch Rexroth offers three layers of integrated safety for its drive and controls products under Safety on Board:
Sytronix — the "Smart interplay of Hydraulics and Electronics" — combines the features and most important advantages of both technologies: The reliability of powerful hydraulic systems, along with the energy efficiency and dynamics of compact electronics, go hand in hand with the variable speed of Rexroth's Sytronix Variable-Speed Pump Drives.
The Sytronix FcP (frequency controlled pump drive) is an energy-efficient, variable-speed pump drive for use in constant pressure systems such as machine tools. It is available in the performance class 1.5-90 kW, and offers energy savings that range from 40% to 70%. In addition, the Sytronix FcP reduces average noise emission by up to 20 dB (A), has minimal or no cooling requirements and features a compact design to help save space. More details on Sytronix FcP
