Material Handling
 
 

Industrial trucks, cranes, or drilling rigs - material handling requires great forces and the ability to control these forces with great precision. At the same time, fuel consumption must be kept low in order to keep operating costs under control and ensure compliance with environmental regulations without, however, sacrificing performance. For this, you can rely on innovative solutions from Bosch Rexroth. Our main focus in the area of material handling is on drive and control solutions for moving big loads smoothly and with precision, hydrostatic travel drives and electronics solutions.

You have to reduce fuel consumption but cannot forgo power and performance: One of Bosch Rexroth's several smart solutions to this dilemma is downsizing. This concept allows for motors - for instance of forklift trucks - to be replaced by smaller power units without any noticeable loss of power. This is achieved by increasing the efficiency of the hydraulic pumps and motors. As a result, you will save costs and at the same time protect the environment and fulfill legal regulations. The same also applies to Bosch Rexroth's newly developed extremely quiet external gear pump Silence Plus. The noise reduction is especially effective in the hydraulic pump's electric motor drive.

Moreover, Bosch Rexroth supports crane manufacturers of all kinds with equally innovative solutions, helping them comply with with increasingly strict exhaust emission regulations and new machinery directives. In addition, technology from Bosch Rexroth allows you to improve controllability and increase load-handling capacity.

When it comes to drilling rigs, energy efficiency is also important, but so are drilling process automation and drilling data capture. This key application is characterized by its great range of machinery and versatile operating environments. This requires complex drive and control systems, which Bosch Rexroth is able to develop thanks to its industry sector-oriented multi-product approach.

Many manufacturers nowadays have moved their production to Asia. In many cases, this leads to a spatial separation of the development department in Europe and the US from the production facilities in Asia. Thanks to its industry sector-based structure, Bosch Rexroth supports is customers worldwide with its bundled application knowhow and profound product and system knowledge. Working in partnership with our customers in the material handling industry, we implement comprehensive system solutions for travel drives, working hydraulics, drive technology and electronics.
