Progress for the consumer goods industry
Smart solutions throughout: Automation as an enabler for the industrial transformation.
The consumer goods and packaging industry which is regarded as relatively crisis-proof is undergoing rapid change. Considerable competitive pressure requires methods to increase productivity – while maintaining high quality standards. At the same time, flexibility and individuality are becoming increasingly important. Adaptability must be able to withstand the pace of change in the market. On top of this, factors such as the lack of personnel, high energy costs and long delivery times for components must be taken into account. Equally forward-looking and relevant is the need for sustainable production, which aims to conserve resources and reduce the CO₂ footprint.
These challenges can only be met with new, integrated machine, production and packaging concepts – all driven by automation. Increasing the level of automation through the entire value stream is the key here.
Bosch Rexroth offers integrated automation solutions for the manufacture and printing of packaging. Best-in-class linear motion technology interacts with robotics solutions and motion software here. Bosch Rexroth is the technology leader for motion control applications in printing machines and offers a comprehensive library toolbox with functions that cover all printing requirements.
Processed foods, beverages and pharmaceutical products are becoming more and more popular throughout the world. Various requirements need to be taken into account during processing. The Bosch Rexroth portfolio is ideally tailored to these requirements, whether it be high-performance transport using a planar system with six degrees of freedom or, in linear motion technology, an electromechanical actuator as an energy-efficient alternative to pneumatic cylinders.
A high packaging speed must not be at the expense of sealing, which plays a key role in ensuring a longer shelf life and product safety. This requires supporting technologies that can speed up and automate material flows. Bosch Rexroth provides individual solutions not only for compact and less demanding applications but also for highly complex tasks.
We give your production a boost when it comes to end-of-line packaging. We follow the “less is more” principle with ultra-compact drives or ultra-flat linear axes for the highly efficient handling of small parts or automatic palletization. As a result, you can achieve more while saving space and money. At the same time, the solutions from Bosch Rexroth adapt ideally to the particular environment. They can be integrated quickly and easily and are thus ready for use in next to no time.
With the integrated solutions from Bosch Rexroth, the degree of automation in intralogistics can be increased significantly. The Cartesian multi-axis systems in the Smart Function Kit Handling are particularly suitable for positioning and handling tasks for example. Thanks to suitable solution sets, automation is playing an increasingly important role in gantry robots, mobile robotics (AGVs/AMRs) and palletizing systems. These are modular and scalable and can be expanded as necessary via app technology to offer functions for automation in intralogistics and warehousing.
