Reduce emissions when moving and handling trading materials

Whether you are talking about Industrial trucks, cranes, forklifts, 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 compromising on performance. For this, you can rely on innovative solutions from Bosch Rexroth. Our main focus is on drive and control solutions for moving big loads smoothly and with precision, hydrostatic travel drives and electronics solutions.

- Combining strength and precision: Bosch Rexroth's drive and control material handling

– Drive and control systems to move big loads smoothly and with precision

– Reducing fuel consumption without compromising on performance

– Improving environmental performance and lowering costs


It is essential to reduce fuel consumption without compromising power and performance: One of Bosch Rexroth's smart solutions to this dilemma is downsizing. This concept allows for motors - on forklift trucks for example- 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 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.

Consequently, 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 key, but equally important are drilling process automation and drilling data capture. This key application is characterised 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 large product portfolio and industry sector focus.

Many manufacturers have moved their production to Asia. which can lead to a spatial separation from the development department back in Europe or the US. Thanks to its industry sector-based structure, Bosch Rexroth can supports its 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.
