Bosch Rexroth continues to expand its mechatronics training system for Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 that you can touch and feel: the mMS 4.0 training system from Bosch Rexroth is used in numerous vocational and higher education institutions as well as in training departments from companies. For mechatronics training or further education, the training system, which is based on standard components and can be modularly expanded, conveys pioneering Industry 4.0 technologies in an intuitive and practical manner. And now, Rexroth is expanding the range of applications of the "mini-factory" once again: as well as offering integration of the collaborative APAS robots from Bosch, the training system can now be connected with the PPM (Production Performance Manager) software. Both expansions will be shown by the Drive & Control Academy of Bosch Rexroth for the first time at the didacta education trade fair (Hall 6, Stand B60), which will take place from February 14 in Stuttgart.

Network to prevent downtime

As roll mills run in three-shift mode almost continuously, machine availability plays a hugely important role. Failures on a single machine ultimately delay the entire production process and thus cause extremely high costs. To prevent this, machines are normally maintained after a certain number of operating hours. On its new roll mill, KRAIBURG wanted to find out how to do this differently and took its first step toward the maintenance method of the future.

Bosch Rexroth and Fraunhofer Institute present the future of work

ActiveAssist, ActiveCockpit

On February 2nd, 2017 Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka, German Federal Minister for Education and Research, opened the Future Work Lab at the Stuttgart-Vaihingen research campus. In the innovation laboratory for work, people and technology, the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO and Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA, together with the corresponding institutes of the University of Stuttgart, show how the industrial work of the future will look…

Smart throttle valve for higher pressure ranges

Machine manufacturers can now realize hydraulic systems with reduced dimensions and improved control behavior thanks to the new Rexroth 2-way proportional throttle valves. These cartridge valves are designed for a maximum operating pressure of 420 bar. The newly developed on-board electronics enable compensation of decentralized disturbances for improved control quality.

Maintenance contract until 2028: protection for more than one million people

With more than one million inhabitants, the greater area of Rotterdam and Amsterdam is protected against flooding by storm surges from the North Sea by the Maeslantkering barrier. To ensure that the moving structure can continue to fulfill its task in the future, the operator, Rijkwaterstaat, has agreed a new maintenance contract with Bosch Rexroth for drive and control solutions. The contract will run for the next twelve years until 2028.

IndraControl XM12: Economical control in real time

IndraControl XM12: Economical control in real time

As soon as many process signals were processed in an application, there is no alternative to real-time-capable controllers, even in lighter-duty applications with a more basic set of performance requirements. For these applications, Bosch Rexroth now offers an economical solution: The new IndraControl XM12 – flexible, easy-to-configure embedded control hardware that can be expanded with additional modules. Thanks to the use of open standards in programming and communication, IndraControl XM12 is the perfect fit for automation concepts.

The mountain saw

Without traffic disruption, on the Autostrada Adriatica the two tunnels of the Montedomini Tunnel have been widened from two to three lanes. For this purpose the Italian Palmieri Group designed an eight-and-a-half meters long chainsaw, which sawed the new arch of the tunnel in the rock. Palmieri settled for a Hägglunds hydraulic motor and a closed hydraulic system by Rexroth, through which the fluid was pumped.

Higher filtration effect and a longer service life

For failsafe operation of hydraulic systems, optimum filtration of the fluid is essential. 80 % of all failures can be traced back to contaminated fluid. The responsible particles are not visible to the naked eye. New filter media of the fifth generation by Rexroth reliably retain these contaminations. At the same time, they lower the operating costs thanks to a significantly increased service life of the filter elements. In addition, this is the first time a manufacturer has equipped all filter elements in standard sizes with an electrical conductive fleece filter medium by default. In this way, the risk of electric discharges in connection with zinc- and ash-free hydraulic oils is reduced.
