Industry 4.0 Smart Factory Demonstrator


Enabling an industrial automation system

The Smart Factory Demonstrator works as follows: The Bosch Rexroth Clip Mounting module reads the RFID from the product memory and then, completely autonomously, mounts the clip to the bottom of the cardholder. The open control of the module is executed by the open core interface, in which functions can be created in high-level languages while meeting safety necessities.

Flexibility and efficiency in Smart Factory

Bosch Rexroth delivers greater freedom in relation to Industry 4.0 implementation. And, in doing so, brings greater flexibility and efficiency to the IT world. Simplifying data evaluation, the control flexibly realises the tasks expressed by the workpiece and undertakes well-organised movements by using compact modules and linear systems.


Innovation through partnership

The demonstrator is an initiative by the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Bosch Rexroth collaborated in its production with automation manufacturers and developed one of the modules. Bosch Rexroth is also a member of SmartFactory KL e.V., a nonprofit demonstration and research association in Europe.
