With application-specific systems, Bosch Rexroth reduces engineering time and expenditure for the PV industry

There is an increasing trend toward custom solutions when it comes to the construction of plants for the photovoltaics industry. More and more, machine manufacturers are turning to application-specific axis systems as well as complete subsystems and are benefiting from Bosch Rexroth's long-term handling experience. This significantly reduces engineering time and effort. And allows you to focus on your core processes.

Many users no longer want to configure their plant and its numerous individual components themselves. With complex subsystems tailored to individual customer requirements, e.g. installation space and dynamics, Bosch Rexroth reduces complexity and engineering times for the user.

For example, the EasyHandling system – and its wide spectrum of finely scalable components in terms of performance and features – enables solutions customized to manufacturer requirements. In addition to individual components such as grippers, linear modules, servo motors, drives, and control units including visualization, that includes completely preassembled linear systems with various drive versions. This gives users more flexibility when it comes to plant construction.

The more complete the desired Rexroth solution is, the less assembly efforts fall to the machine manufacturer. Open communication interfaces and standardized programming languages with predefined features simplify integration into the existing automation structures. EasyHandling means up to 80% less engineering time and effort for machine manufacturers.

For the growing number of users looking for ready-made solutions, Bosch Rexroth offers a complete range of solutions – from mechatronic systems to complete subsystems. These systems and their individual components are specifically tailored to the individual application.

In addition, Bosch Rexroth also provides all services in terms of component and standard system design, installation, and commissioning. This allows manufacturers to reduce their own engineering time and costs to an even greater degree. Rexroth modular transport and handling systems are so flexible that manufacturers can supplement or replace their work stations at any time, without making any compromises in terms of fast, careful handling of cells and panels. Users can thus focus 100% on their core areas of expertise and solutions.

Rexroth can be found at the Intersolar Europe 2012 in Hall A6, booth 357.
