Industry 4.0 can't be done single-handedly

Higher Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in 48 hours with state-of-the-art IoT tools and real production data: around 100 participants from 14 countries succeeded in achieving this goal at the Bosch ConnectedExperience Manufacturing Hackathon. The venue for BCX17, which attracted 500 visitors in total, was STATION Berlin, in whose creative atmosphere the Bosch ConnectedWorld IoT conference took place at the same time from March 15-16.

Bosch Rexroth delivers a drive & control solution for a Japanese “continuous jacking system”

Bosch Rexroth has received an order from GustoMSC to engineer, manufacture and commission the drive and control system for GustoMSC's most recent model in its successful series of continuous jacking systems. It is intended for a Japanese construction vessel, allowing it to perform precise and high speed windmill installations at sea. The continuous jacking system (CJS) is based on innovative lifting functions, in which 48 hydraulic cylinders directed by a digital control work together seamlessly. Sensors and displacement sensor systems provide feedback for the complex cylinder movements. The CJS lifts the vessel out of the water in one fluid motion, turning it into a stable offshore "construction platform".

Experience automation trends live

At interpack 2017, Bosch Rexroth will demonstrate what is already possible with connected automation today. In addition to the numerous live demos, a packaging module from WestRock with its digital twin in the model-based simulation of Dassault Systèmes, will demonstrate how machine builders can use Industry 4.0 solutions directly and to their advantage. The IoT Gateway from Rexroth will provide the central building block for connecting existing and new machines with the Internet of Things, and will be distributed throughout the exhibition grounds at various machine builders.

ASME certification opens up new territories for Bosch Rexroth

In December 2016 Bosch Rexroth, the leading company in drive and control solutions, gained the highest level of ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) certification for its hydraulic piston accumulators. Covering U, U2 and U3 Stamps, it means Bosch Rexroth is one of few companies in the world capable of providing this certification for its hydraulic accumulators.

Hydraulic fluids on the test bench

Hydraulic fluids have a decisive influence on the wear properties of hydraulic components. With the PFE-019-Rxxx fluid test bench from Bosch Rexroth, additive and lubricant manufacturers can now test the behavior of fluids and their interaction with the key components, the pump and the motor, under realistic operating conditions. Thanks to its compact dimensions, the plug-and-play solution can be easily integrated into industrial environments and can be used as soon as all media are connected.

‘Lifting’ a 48,000-ton platform in the open ocean is no easy task

Allseas Pioneering Spirit

It was the biggest assignment Bosch Rexroth in Boxtel had ever faced, and it took more than two years to carry it out. But they seized with both hands the opportunity to research and supply the hydraulic components and associated local controls for the innovative lifting system on board the Pioneering Spirit, conceived and developed by Allseas.

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.
