Already qualified for the future: With its "Industry 4.0 – Training and Consulting" educational offer, Bosch Rexroth is supporting the targeted expansion of qualifications in education and training.

New training sessions, consulting and factory tours expand the knowledge transfer to Industry 4.0

Bosch Rexroth is expanding its comprehensive offer of qualifications for Industry 4.0 with additional modules. In addition to new trainings, training systems and modern media, the practical portfolio of knowledge-based products now includes consulting and factory tours. Alongside its role as leading provider in the area of training, Bosch Rexroth is also a leading user of Industry 4.0 solutions, with hands-on experience from many of its own production lines. Case studies from other areas of the Bosch Group are also included in the program.

The digitalization and connected automation presents new challenges for companies and employees. Even in the "digital revolution" humans are indispensable, forming an essential building block for the realization of the digital factory with their skills. The key to success lies in the targeted expansion of qualifications.

The Drive & Control Academy offers a comprehensive educational offer for Industry 4.0, in which Bosch Rexroth and Robert Bosch GmbH summarize their experience and competence in this area. The entire offer is described in the "Industry 4.0 - Training and Consulting" catalog. It provides information about trainings, consulting, training systems and specialized i4.0 factory tours during which, as leading users, Bosch and Rexroth give insights into their own experiences with Industry 4.0.

Better understanding, better use: insights into the training program

i4.0 Training: Our training sessions provide you with a solid introduction to the world of Industry 4.0 – and uses many sample applications and details, e.g. integrating RFID, visualization on smart devices or connecting to an MES. Also included in the program are various workshops, such as data analysis projects at shopfloor level.

i4.0 Consulting: As part of an individual consulting and innovation workshop, the potential of Industry 4.0 is identified for participating companies and worked together from a specific implementation perspective.

i4.0 Training Systems: The mMS 4.0 training system is a complete Industry 4.0 system in miniature. In practice, it provides leading Industry 4.0 technologies - such as programming in high-level languages, workpiece-led production using RFID and the linking of production data with ERP and MES systems - through a cube assembly.

i4.0 Factory Tours: At five locations in Germany and one factory in China, the Drive & Control Academy is offering practical insights into their own factories as examples.

Smart software and hardware for the industrial IoT

The secret of the Internet of things lies in the software. Without it, there would be no smart devices and no cloud. Consequently, the new IoT Gateway software V2 arrives with many new connectivity possibilities. New hardware allows for an adjustable and scalable concept for one or more machines and can be used for existing machines as well as directly at the OEM. In order to be able to evaluate status and processes completely, the user has the option of connecting additional sensors, third-party controls and higher-level IT systems. Another new feature is the Device Portal – a joint development by Rexroth and Bosch Connected Industry – for centralized management of distributed infrastructures.

Software drives innovation

Vertical and horizontal connectivity, digital engineering, economic production of very small batch sizes – without software, these core characteristics of Industry 4.0 would be inconceivable. Even today, software contributes a great deal to the added value created by machines, while in the factory of the future it supplies the necessary intelligence for modular, mobile and connected production components. Using its Connected Automation portfolio, Bosch Rexroth will be demonstrating how state-of-the-art software affects competitiveness and time-to-market at the SPS IPC Drives.
