New Training on Current Industry Trends in the Rexroth Training Program 2015

New training: programming in high-level languages with direct access to the Rexroth controllers IndraLogic XLC and IndraMotion MLC using Open Core Engineering.

The rapid new and further developments of drive and control systems and their components require qualified employees who are constantly up to date with the latest technological advancements. In the Training Program 2015, the Drive & Control Academy at Bosch Rexroth is also offering training relating to Industry 4.0 for the very first time. Furthermore, the catalog available at includes new basic training for industry and mobile hydraulics as well as electrical drive and control technology. The training is aimed at employees, technicians, engineers and maintenance staff at industrial plants and machine manufacturers as well as teachers and instructors at vocational colleges and universities.

The Training Program 2015 from Rexroth focuses on target-group-specific qualification measures in all drive and control technologies. The training is particularly distinguished by its strong practical relevance, technical competence and modern teaching methods. "In addition to the many technological basic training courses that we have been successfully conducting for years, our new training program includes seminars on current industry trends, those being Industry 4.0, energy efficiency and machinery safety," says Thomas Berger, Head of Training at the Rexroth Drive & Control Academy.

For the very first time, trainers will be imparting basic knowledge on Open Core Engineering from Rexroth, which combines classic automation with the possibilities of modern applications based on high-level languages and IT-based technologies. For example, advanced students are now able to learn programming in high-level languages with direct access to the Rexroth controllers IndraLogic XLC and IndraMotion MLC using Open Core Engineering. Moreover, eLearning basic training on energy efficiency with variable-speed pump drives is as much a part of the program as seminars on the basics of machinery safety.

Due to the huge demand, Rexroth has added more basic training courses to the 2015 program, which include, among others, "Reading and understanding hydraulic circuit diagrams" and "The selection and maintenance of hydraulic fluids". Furthermore, the Drive & Control Academy at Rexroth is offering practice-oriented events for project engineers and commissioning engineers of the new motion controllers for hydraulics.

For the first time, the 300 page catalog also contains the category "Media". Here, readers will find a clear overview of teaching and learning material such as books, software, animations and videos that have been tailored to the training and training systems of the drive and control specialists.

Individual access to the online world of learning

The further training offered by Rexroth combines classic, digitalized and practical teaching and learning methods. Experienced trainers impart necessary basic and specialized knowledge to the participants undergoing training by means of eLearning, face-to-face training, and training systems. All seminar participants receive individual access to the learning environment of the Drive & Control Academy, enabling them to access their training documents and all the information pertaining to their course online at any time before and after the training session. Rexroth provides the learning material via tablet PCs.

Economical, precise, safe, and energy efficient: drive and control technology from Bosch Rexroth moves machines and systems of any size. The company bundles global application experience in the market segments of Mobile Applications, Machinery Applications and Engineering, Factory Automation, and Renewable Energies to develop innovative components as well as tailored system solutions and services. Bosch Rexroth offers its customers hydraulics, electric drives and controls, gear technology, and linear motion and assembly technology all from one source. With locations in over 80 countries, roughly 36,700 associates generated sales revenue of approximately 5.7 billion euros in 2013.

Intelligent hydraulics for increased availability

Connected hydraulics increase the availability of machinery and plants through condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. For this purpose, Rexroth offers scalable solutions, from individual units with local evaluation to the complete, cloud-based monitoring of large plants. Sensors measure all relevant operating conditions and software detects wear before it leads to failure. Retrofitting kits also economically integrate already installed plants into these concepts.
