Hägglunds Inside Intelligence offers smart drive connectivity

Hägglunds Inside Intelligence, a new connectivity suite for Hägglunds hydraulic direct drive systems, puts Bosch Rexroth at the cutting edge of performance optimization. Through smart technologies, this growing range of products and services offers the customers many forms of direct access to Bosch Rexroth expertise.

Presented at Hannover Messe 2017, Hägglunds Inside Intelligence is a modern portfolio of services that connect a Hägglunds drive system with Bosch Rexroth expertise. Using smart technology within the drive system – combined with mobile devices and interactive solutions – it gives users direct and secure access to over a half-century of experience.

“The technology is the tool, but not the focus,” says Wolfram Ulrich, Vice President Sales for Hägglunds Products at Bosch Rexroth. “What matters is how we use it to help customers increase their drive utilization and productivity while lowering their cost of ownership. Through Hägglunds Inside Intelligence, our experienced experts can provide customers with instant analysis, real-time advice and condition monitoring, as well as predictive maintenance and other forms of proactive support.”

A growing portfolio of services

Hägglunds Inside Intelligence is a concept that will grow as technologies, products and services develop. At the time of introduction, the portfolio comprises the following:

Hägglunds CM and Hägglunds CM premium with ODiN

These services enable condition monitoring by establishing a link between the drive system and Bosch Rexroth expertise. Hägglunds CM provides entry-level monitoring and logging, while Hägglunds CMp with ODiN offers a complete health index, including historical data, trending and deeper analytics. The latter’s secure and encrypted data communication lets Bosch Rexroth – or the customer’s own skilled engineers – look within the drive to optimize performance and initiate condition-based maintenance.

Hägglunds InSight Live saves time and money by using augmented reality to connect Bosch Rexroth service experts with the local maintenance team on site. Through a mobile device or a pair of video goggles, central service experts literally see what the onsite team sees. In real time, they can provide instruction and interact visually to guide service actions.

A platform for the future

Hägglunds Inside Intelligence not only fulfills today’s needs, but also fits well into the developing framework of Industry 4.0. In bringing connectivity to the drive, it puts tools for improving business at the very heart of industrial processes. By connecting their equipment with Bosch Rexroth expertise, customers can realize the full potential of their Hägglunds drive system.

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.

Linear motion, short time to market

Stand-alone linear axes are the trend. The combination of electrical drive unit and mechanical or hydraulic cylinder reduces installation space and engineering time and combines our specific professional knowledge in one system. With ready-to-mount and i4.0-enabled solution packages, Bosch Rexroth is in line with the current market requirements regarding electrification, digitalization and monitoring as well as condition-based maintenance. The uniform control and drive concept which is used in the different technologies serves as a basis for a short time to market and the economical implementation of hybrid solutions.
