Digital Product Twins: leverage your Bosch Rexroth products

Introducing the Bosch Rexroth Digital Product Twin

Digitalization is the key to surviving and thriving in today’s industries. Supporting your digital efforts Bosch Rexroth takes you two steps ahead with extensive and powerful Digital Product Twins of all Bosch Rexroth products. Incorporate any needed Digital Product Twins in your own lifecycle workflows, such as virtual commissioning or digital services, and maximize your benefits at your own pace.

Asset Administration Shell: standardized access to your digital product data

Our Digital Product Twin accompanies each of your Bosch Rexroth products for easy integration into your own lifecycle workflows. On basis of the Bosch Semantic Stack it bundles all relevant product data according to the standardized Asset Administration Shell (AAS) model and its AAS Submodels – this includes the product’s Digital Nameplate, its Product Carbon Footprint, engineering data from CAD and virtual commissioning, and much more.

As Bosch Rexroth…

Products and supply chains are getting more complex, but also more flexible. To push your time-to-market and interoperability we enable an easy identification and accessibility of relevant product data in a machine- and human-readable way.

Icon puzzle

…we provide you…

The Digital Product Twin is your single source of truth for all product related digital data – based on the standardized Asset Administration Shell (AAS). Relevant data is bundled to form a product’s Digital Product Twin. Following this industry standard, we can ensure a seamless, scalable, and secure data exchange with you and even your partners.

Icon possibilities

…limitless possibilities.

Continuous improvement requires a good foundation for your decisions. Along your own product’s lifecycle and user demands we ease your decisions in engineering, commissioning, and operation with our Digital Product Twins – scalable and highly integrable for your product lifecycle support.

A Deep Dive into our Digital Product Twin

At Bosch Rexroth an all-knowing Digital Product Twin of a Bosch Rexroth product is formed by combining its general master data from the Product Type Twin and any customer-specific data from Product Instance Twins.

Product Type Twin

> 885.000 generated

This is the digital image of a Bosch Rexroth product independent of manufacturing, as it can be configured and ordered. It is inherently digital.

It bundles master data of a product, which applies to all manufactured Product Instance Twins of that product.

This master data includes documents, CAD data, simulation models, customer/internal specifications, and much more.

Product Instance Twin

> 300.000.000 generated

This is the digital image of a Bosch Rexroth product manufactured just for you. This Product Instance Twin finally has a real, usually even touchable, entity it represents.

It bundles customer- and production-related data of this manufactured entity, in relation to its one and only Product Type Twin.

This data includes production data, field data, measurement logs, service and maintenance information, and much more.

Your benefits along the product lifecycle

Check out some of our relevant product data throughout a product’s lifecycle – brought to you by our Digital Product Twins.

Visual of seven product lifecycle phases and where digital product twins impact. The phases are: Pre-Design, Engineering, Production Planning, Production, Distribution & Shipping, Service & Maintenance, Dismantling & Recycling.

Discover your next Success Stories and Use Cases:

Pre-Design: Product Specification

Choose wisely – compare your possibilities & speed up your configuration decisions.

Retrieve all relevant information at one source, including

  • product specifications,
  • extensive documentation,
  • CAD and simulation models,
  • Product Carbon Footprints,
  • … and so much more!

Make data-driven decisions to find the right fit:

  • Gain a fast access to support tools and configurators
  • Automate the comparison of product specific data
  • Integrate CAD-Files for space analysis and simulation models for rapid prototyping and virtual commissioning.

Engineering: Virtual Commissioning with Simulation

Icon with a screen on which a 3D model is displayed incl. start button as symbol for the lifecycle phase engineering.

Better safe than sorry – support preliminary design & reduce iterations.

Design & Concept with Digital First: Evaluate and validate hardware configurations before making your buying decision. Find bottlenecks and maximize your power densities.

Engineering Two Steps Ahead: Validate and Optimize the most complex parts of your machine: comfortably from your desk. Simulate time-extensive test runs of your entire machinery and be the first to identify programming mistakes or optimizations for your drive and motor parametrizations.

Bosch Rexroth simulation products integrate with strong market toolchains, so you always get qualified answers to your engineering challenges.

Let Bosch Rexroth enable you in such use cases:

  • Improve time-to-market and save space when planning your components and machinery.
  • Gain error confidence and save time for the final commissioning at your end customers.
  • Identify side-effect problems which only reveal themselves after several runs.

Review our own Bosch Rexroth Virtual Engineering portfolio and its market tool integrations. These are your challenges, but we have your digital support. You Decide.
