Four errors in construction that are sure to destroy energy

Software takes into account all energy flows inside the machine

Bosch Rexroth has developed the universal Rexroth 4EE system based on its broad application experience and employs this system to support design engineers in the efforts to implement energy efficient solutions. The following are four errors in machine design that are sure to destroy energy ― and four ways of how to avoid them.

Fluid rating from Rexroth: reliably increase the service life of hydraulics

Higher operating pressures and significantly increased power density: hydraulic performance has greatly increased again in the past years. This also places higher requirements on the hydraulic fluids used which have a decisive influence on the wear properties of hydraulic components. For this reason, Bosch Rexroth offers fluid and additive manufacturers a newly developed rating procedure for hydraulic fluids which realistically reflects and reproduces the new requirements. It goes far beyond the minimum requirements of the corresponding fluid standards.

French Mechatronics Award for electronic joystick from Rexroth

The yearly Mechatronics Award in France is co-organized by the three major French federations in mechatronics – THESAME, ARTEMA and THE CETIM. This year’s 8th edition focused on solutions, trends and innovations in the off-road industry including machines in the areas of construction, agriculture, material handling, railway as well as municipal vehicles. Bosch Rexroth won the award in the category “Big Companies Project” for its electronic joystick 4THEC5 SIL2 for construction and material handling machines such as excavators and fork lift trucks.

More flexibility for continuous casting machines

Mold oscillation forms the basis for optimum steel surface quality and the productivity and cost-effectiveness of the entire continuous casting line. Continuous casting lines require not only precise oscillation but also a high level of flexibility in terms of stroke and frequency. Only state-of-the-art electro-hydraulics can provide the required precise movement of heavy masses with respect to all of the oscillation parameters. This is where Bosch Rexroth provides an all-in-one drive and control package made up of well-matched components that can be integrated into any control system: from oscillation cylinders right up to high-performance multi-axis control with software packages.

Cross-technology axis controls for demanding stage movements

SYB 3.0 combines electrical and hydraulic drive technology with the latest control electronics and software harmonized to suit the stage machinery. Because of its strictly modular concept for decentralized system architectures, it precisely covers the requirements for any stage. This applies to smaller stages with fewer drives as well as for completely equipped lower-stage and upper-stage machinery in large opera houses with up to 700 drive units and 16 operating panels. Thus, SYB 3.0 provides with the option of subsequently expanding or modernizing the installation at minimum expense.

Increased safety for stage engineering equipment

The use of increasingly powerful drives has resulted in intensive safety-related discussions in the field of stage technology. Comprehensive tests and simulations provide important results during the measurement of load peaks for various emergency stop scenarios. Rexroth offers solutions for hydraulic and electromechanical drives that provide reliable protection for actors, scenery and equipment.

Stage control technology with sensitivity

Browsing, zooming and scrolling with two fingers on a display: For users of smartphones and tablet PCs the simple operation of complex technology has already become a matter. Rexroth now transfers this comfort to stage technology. The multi-touch screen of the new operator panel SCIV simplifies operation. Leap Motion supplements the operation by means of joysticks and start buttons. Moreover, additional software functions in the stage control system SYB 3.0 increase the safety and availability of stage equipment.
