Smart pressing & joining: This will save you a lot of time and money.

How can typical pressing and joining processes be brought into the line straight out of the box and made transparent? The Factory of the Future starts now!

Have you ever designed, configured and programmed a subsystem for pressing, joining, forming, inspection or testing? Then you are probably also familiar with the time involved and the numerous possible sources of error until production can finally start. What if you could show the cost-eaters in engineering the red card and order your applications ready-made as a complete solution with automated commissioning and graphical process creation? Take the next step towards the Factory of the Future with Bosch Rexroth and use our smart system toolbox for pressing and joining applications!

Smart Function Kit Pressing in a nutshell

Subsystem for a wide range of applications: the Smart Function Kit for pressing and joining applications combines mechanics, electrics and software to form a plug and produce solution.

An ecosystem for smart mechatronics

The term Smart MechatroniX actually says it all. The new ecosystem of coordinated mechatronic components now enables design engineers to select, configure and order specific ready-to-install subsystems digitally. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Smart Function Kit for Pressing, a complete mechanical, electrical and software package, can be ordered with a single material number and is delivered in a package with pre-installed operating software. On site, a wizard guides you through the commissioning process in just a few minutes. Process creation is also a breeze: Via the intuitively operated web HMI, the sequence can be assembled simply by dragging and dropping prepared modules, which then only have to be filled with the appropriate parameters.

Unpack and start producing!

Thanks to the prepared function blocks, the connection to the line control is just as easy as the data exchange via OPC UA. The pre-installed software package ensures that the plug-and-produce subsystem can be used immediately, which significantly shortens time-to-market. For optimal transparency during operation, process and status information is visualized in the dashboard – including live display of the force-displacement curve and display of the evaluation result (OK/NOK). Traceability is also ensured, as the Smart Function Kit stores all process data including quality assessment in an internal database.

All benefits at a glance:

  • Easy product selection: Pre-selected kits for forces up to 70 kN and individually configurable travel ranges up to 400 mm. Everything from a single source in proven Bosch Rexroth quality.
  • Plug and produce: Online order 24/7 via the Bosch Rexroth Store. Delivered in a single package, including pre-installed operating software. The drive controller is automatically parameterized and reduces the number of interfaces thanks to the integrated control.
  • Zero programming: Simple and logical configuration of process and evaluation elements. Browser-based HMI, modern and intuitive design, usable on various end devices.
  • Open interfaces: IoT-capable subsystem, integrates quickly into higher-level controllers and IT systems. Data export of process results via Web HMI.
