"Better City, Better Life"

"At the German "balancity" pavilion, visitors to the global exhibition in Shanghai were able to experience the EXPO theme "Better City, Better Life" at its most impressive." This was the verdict from the organizers as the EXPO in Shanghai closed on October 30, this year. A real crowd-puller, the German pavilion fascinated guests with a unique highlight: By shouting or clapping, visitors could set in motion a multi-media ball dazzling with 400,000 LEDs which was suspended from a 5.6-meter long pendulum. "Bosch Rexroth helped with the drive solution for the interactive ball; this particular solution has been a success in over 13,500 concepts," stresses Dr. Karl Tragl, Chairman of the Executive Board of Bosch Rexroth AG. "We are proud that the German contribution made such a good impression in China thanks to its combination of technology and creativity." The components for the drive system came from Rexroth's standard product range for series machines.
