Bosch Rexroth to exhibit drive and control systems for semiconductor production at SEMICON West 2017

Bosch Rexroth SEMICON West 2017

Rexroth will showcase several advanced drive and control systems, including the IoT Gateway, in booth 5760 at SEMICON West 2017.

Bosch Rexroth will share its automation technology portfolio and expertise in Industry 4.0 and semiconductor manufacturing during SEMICON West 2017, July 11-13, 2017, at Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. The drive and control company will exhibit at booth 5760.

Bosch Rexroth is set to exhibit several advanced drive and control systems during SEMICON West 2017 in San Francisco, CA, July 11-13, 2017. During the conference, Rexroth will demo the latest technologies in Industry 4.0, advanced motion control, integrated measuring systems, and linear motion systems, including the NYCe 4000 motion control platform, wafer handling technology, the XDK sensor and more. Rexroth will also demonstrate the IoT Gateway, a precisely coordinated combination of control hardware and software that allows easy connection between Industry 4.0 environments without intervening in the automation logic.

Visitors should make sure to check out the IoT Gateway-the latest technology in the Industry 4.0 movement. Highlights include:

• The IoT Gateway is designed for implementing IT applications and sensor and process data, transmits it to MES, cloud applications or local machine state monitoring systems, enabling process data analysis.

• The modular software concept of the IoT Gateway is based on Linux, Java apps and open interfaces. It makes your machine and process data more transparent, while monitoring energy-related data makes it possible to shut down plant components and optimize the energy balance.

• The Iot Gateway‘s unique combination of control hardware and software quickly and flexibly connects machines to Industry 4.0.

• The IoT Gateway is concurrently featured with the XDK sensor from Bosch.

In addition, Rexroth will demo new technologies aimed toward the automation industry and designed to optimize equipment efficiency:

• The NYCe 4000 motion control system is now even more powerful! NYCe 4000 boasts a new control engine that enables applications to run onboard the integrated Linux platform, allowing it to meet complex requirements and maintain easy operation.

• The IMS-I (incremental) and IMS-A (absolute) integrated measuring systems combine highly rigid Rexroth ball rail and roller rail systems with a non-contact length measuring system. Offering measurement accuracy comparable to that of high-precision glass scales, both systems offer simplified design with components completely integrated into the linear guide and no attachments required.

• Rexroth’s wafer handling technologies are expertly designed to balance high-dynamic servo drives, high rigidty linear subsystems and pneumatic actuators. Rexroth‘s wafer handling solutions reduces idle time and standardizes handling throughout your front-end operations. Vibration is prevented by pre-defined algorithms in the motion control system and enables higher-order motion profiles and spline functions.

• Rexroth’s linear systems offer a wide range of standard catalog modules with different drive options including ball screws, belts and linear motors. Ready-to-mount, precise and highly proficient, custom system capabilities allows the ability to design and integrate core Rexroth products into a pre-existing motion system built for specific application needs.

With several hundred process steps and movements in the nanometer range, semiconductor production requires utmost precision. Rexroth’s drive and control portfolio delivers on those requirements, while maintaining an active role in the Industry 4.0 movement. The company‘s global engineering and application teams provide process-specific expertise to help customers develop scalable and integrated multi-technology systems and optimize their facilities with Industry 4.0 technology. From jerk-free slow movement to high-speed positioning, Rexroth helps semiconductor process and inspection tool manufacturers master their drive and control challenges.

Bosch Rexroth products and automation technology experts will be available at SEMICON West 2017 in booth 5760. For more information, visit .
