Flexible, continuous production

The growth markets of energy storage and printed electronics are characterized by considerable pressure in terms of time, quality and costs. Bosch Rexroth positions itself as an incredibly reliable automation partner, delivering easy-to-integrate system solutions to handle the current challenges in the printing, semiconductor and display industry. For example, the flexible transport system FTS suitable for vacuum applications and the precision motion control MPC accurate to the nanometer demonstrate how roll-to-roll, coating and production processes can be continuously optimized and made future proof.

Largest flow on the market

Rexroth is raising the bar in performance and communication for hydraulic actuators with its new generation of WRC-4X directional cartridge valves. The valves are more dynamic and consistently achieve flows that could previously only be achieved with the next highest available size. Integrated electronics (OBE) allow the new valve series to be networked via open interfaces with higher-level control units and Industry 4.0 environments even when under analog control. This means that valves can already be integrated into forward-looking automation concepts today.

Automation and IT in one: Bosch Rexroth training systems make companies fit for Industry 4.0

Experts across the world all agree on one thing: Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things will rapidly change the way work is carried out in factories and production facilities. Training systems for Industry 4.0 from Bosch Rexroth provide a realistic environment for employees to prepare for these new challenges. They are based entirely on open programming and communication standards supported by many different providers worldwide. The new CPS i4.0 training system is designed for production-related work and IT tasks. The hardware and software create a networkable cube assembly system. This allows users to learn forward-looking skills such as programming movement sequences in standard languages, component-led production via RFID and connecting production data with ERP and MES systems.

Mexico: Implementing a modernization drive for industry and infrastructure

In recent years, Mexico has developed into a powerhouse in the south of North America. In many cases the country has given impulses for the economic development of Middle and South America. One fifth of silver mined worldwide comes from this country. In addition, this southern neighbor to the US is one of the world’s most important manufacturers of cars and automotive parts. It also has a large food and drinks industry. The 2018 partner country to Hannover Messe has industrialized at an almost dizzying rate over the past two decades. Now, Mexico is looking to reduce its dependency on the US market and strengthen its trade relations with Europe and Asia. The fact that Mexico imports around 80 percent of all machines and systems is of particular interest to the international capital goods industry.

Rexroth offers digitalization of analog interfaces in hydraulics via IO-Link

Reduced connection costs at increased availability: Rexroth harnesses the advantages of the IO-Link open standard also for hydraulic actuators and sensors. As of now, 4WRPEH proportional control valves and HEDE10 pressure switches are available with IO-Link interfaces. Connection is realized via the decentralized and quick IP67 I/O system S67E IO-Link Master. This offers users direct access to the field bus and all data provided by the actuator/sensor.

Uniform travel behavior despite different drive sources

The torque control interface system from Bosch Rexroth offers the opportunity to decouple the drive technology from the fork lift truck driving strategy. This allows manufacturers to standardize the handling characteristics of their forklifts with minimal effort. The Power Manager electronically translates the driver's request into the appropriate power request, which is then converted in the hydrostatic drive. In addition, the electronification of hydrostatic travel drives creates new opportunities for increasing energy efficiency and improving occupational safety with assistance systems such as the HLB high-level brake.
