Rexroth stage technology for cruise ships

Bosch Rexroth receives order for the stage technology of new cruise ships

On 8 July 2016, the contract was signed: By the year 2023, several cruise ships will have been equipped with stage technology by Bosch Rexroth.

“With Bosch Rexroth, we have intentionally chosen a powerful, reliable partner”, says Stephan Schmees, project management director of Meyer Werft. “The shipping company and the shipyard attach high importance to the safety and availability of the stage technology. From our point of view, those are very important aspects for trouble-free productions.” Bosch Rexroth will already supply some parts of the stage technology for the systems into the blocks from which Meyer Werft will build up the cruise ships piece by piece. The first ship will be completed by the end of 2018.

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, and Factory Automation 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, more than 31.100 associates generated sales revenue of approximately 5.4 billion euros in 2015.

Secure motion with collision control

Modern stage technology enables increasingly challenging motion sequences with numerous complex drives. These sequences often include multi-dimensional and interdependent motions. A clear view on the drives is often restricted due to decoration and curtains. The two collision control modules of the SYB 3.0 stage control system developed by Rexroth assist technical personnel with challenging tasks.

High-performance winches in the upper machinery: Mechanical load often underestimated

Current measurements at installed upper machinery drives prove that in case of a category 0 emergency stops, the load on the mechanics is much higher than previously assumed. In reality, the design criterion of twice the rated load prescribed by DIN 56950-1:2012-05 is often critically exceeded by the simple accident load. This may result in considerable risks for human beings working under the hovering loads. Using a new mobile measuring device, stage operators are now able to measure the actual loads and to economically retrofit the high-performance winches that are affected.
