Our contribution to the industrial Internet of things

Become a Industry 4.0 first mover

At Bosch Rexroth, our contribution to Industry 4.0 is already well underway. We have introduced the interdisciplinary products and services portfolio necessary for realizing the key benefits of Industry 4.0: namely decentralized intelligence, fast connectivity, open standards, real-time integration and autonomous behavior. All our products and services are based on open, internationally recognized standards.

Open Core Engineering

We use Open Core Engineering to link the PLC and IT worlds. This bridges the gap between machine automation and information technology in industry and offers users great opportunities for customization.

One of the best examples of an Industry 4.0 compatible autonomous technology is our unique Open Core Engineering software, drive and control portfolio. This unique 2013 Hermes Award winning autonomous technology exemplifies what Industry 4.0 is all about: unprecedented engineering freedom.

A key benefit of Open Core Engineering is that it allows us to utilize smart devices people use in their everyday lives. As users are already familiar with the hard- and software basics, a major step in training is eliminated and this offers an opportunity to reduce machinery training time and overall training costs.

The industrial Internet of Things

Central to Industry 4.0 is the relatively new concept, the Internet of Things , seen as the next revolution of the World Wide Web. With experts predicting that by the year 2020 some fifty billion technical devices will be interlinked through the Internet, the role of the Internet of Things will continue to impact on industry and also on innovation at Bosch Rexroth through applications such as remote condition monitoring found in our IndraMotion MTX CNC .

Our contribution to Industry 4.0 and the industrial Internet of Things encompass all areas of Industry 4.0. All our demonstrator concepts are built upon different proof points and showcase the Industry 4.0 idea. Allow us to be your gateway, partner and facilitator in this exciting new world.
