Bosch Rexroth Assembles their Newest Technologies for The ASSEMBLY Show

Bosch Rexroth Smart Assembly Demo 4.0

Bosch Rexroth’s new Smart Assembly 4.0 demo showcases the latest in Open Mechatronics.

Bosch Rexroth brings its latest technology, product demonstrations and expert advice to The ASSEMBLY Show 2016 in Rosemont, IL from October 25-27, 2016. Booth exhibits will explore the possibilities of Connected Automation, including a new “Smart Assembly 4.0” display showing the possibilities of Connected Automation. An Open Mechatronics Demo examines these possibilities in a different way, using Open Core Engineering to control a multi-axis Cartesian system. Other booth displays present the latest advancements in conveyors and high-performance handling systems. Bosch Rexroth has extensive industry application expertise and utilizes their assembly innovations in their own operations. In fact, the Bosch Rexroth Fountain Inn plant was recently named 2016 Plant of the Year by ASSEMBLY Magazine. Visitors to Booth 313 can expect to learn about the following new technologies that Bosch Rexroth will showcase at The ASSEMBLY Show.

Open Core Mechatronics

Multi-axis motion control and programming has never been easier thanks to Open Core Engineering. It provides access to the core of motion-logic drive and control platforms to enable programmers using standard IT languages like MATLAB, LabVIEW and even Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to create automation functions and applications.

Software engineers can also significantly streamline HMI programming through Rexroth’s Open Core Interface. Taking advantage of predefined software functions, a machine builder can create a customized, easy-to-understand interface, such as a mobile app or HMI screen, even an Excel spreadsheet—allowing users to perform machine functions and collect data from virtually anywhere.

TSplus and VarioFlow plus conveyor systems

Visitors to the Assembly Show can experience the benefits of I4.0 and connected automation with Rexroth’s integrated TSplus conveyor exhibit. Integrated screwdriving, precise workpiece control, easy-to-visualize diagnostics – this demo has it all, including the latest electric drives and controls technology, such as the company’s new IndraControl XM controller.

An all-new VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system display will also debut at the Assembly Show,also with integrated mechatronics and pick-and-place. VarioFlow plus is a versatile, high-performance and standardized system ideal for machine builders and systems integrators who need to deliver flexible transport solutions to target markets and customers faster. VarioFlow plus sets new industry standards for flexibility and modularity

Manual Production Systems & Active Cockpit

Manual assembly will continue to be a critical component in the sophisticated connected assembly systems of tomorrow. Rexroth's Active Cockpit connects to data-sensing manual and automated processes to give associates on the floor a real-time view of production data, work instructions, meeting minutes - whatever information is needed for instant access in order to optimize production.

Couple these newest technologies with Rexroth's Manual Production Systems (MPS), and customers can create the most efficient, flexible lean production system they’ve ever experienced. Developed strictly in accordance with lean manufacturing principles, and based on Rexroth’s easy-to-reconfigure aluminum framing system, MPS makes lean manufacturing easy and lets manufacturers adapt quickly to their customers' changing demands.

Production and Tightening Tools

For assembly of everything from dishwashers and refrigerators to automobiles and airplanes, Bosch Production Tools, Bosch Power Tools and Rexroth Tightening Systems are secure, reliable and accurate. Rexroth Tightening Systems use advanced digital control technology and long-lasting electric motors to provide scalable assembly tightening solutions for all automated and manual tightening tasks. Additionally, tightening products are designed to withstand a million maintenance-free tightening cycles under full load for high-volume, high-quality operations and minimal downtime.

Assembly Plant of the Year

Bosch Rexroth’s Fountain Inn facility is the 2016 Assembly Plant of the Year and will be recognized during this year’s ASSEMBLY Show. The Fountain Inn plant was chosen for its robust combination of lean manufacturing principles, technological advancements, environmental initiatives, employee training programs and community involvement.
