Tightening technology: Bosch Rexroth takes on direct distribution and service in China

The drive and control expert offers more customer proximity and service to the automotive industry in Asia

From distribution to service - Bosch Rexroth now handles its tightening technology in China on its own. Beside the service center and the corporate distribution office in Shanghai, tightening systems are also being configured to customer specifications in Xian as of January 2013. With the direct distribution of its tightening technology, Bosch Rexroth now offers regional support to its customers in China. Particularly the automotive manufacturers rely on the technology from Rexroth in Germany for their production. From configuration to support - customers now receive complete system solutions from one source, even in China.

Among plants across the globe, the automotive industry places a special focus on Asia. Even more competent contact persons for the complete spectrum of Rexroth automation solutions are now available for these customers in China: from distribution and service to the compilation of customer-specific solutions. Maximum process safety is the focal point of Bosch Rexroth's electric tightening systems. More than 250 safety-relevant screw connections are required for the production of a mid-size vehicle alone - from the axes and the engine to the doors. Each of these screws must be tightened at the correct angle and the correct torque. With Rexroth tightening technology, automotive manufacturers can document each individual screw connection and utilize this for statistics and quality assurance. The high level of automation ensures precise performance. At the same time, variable options for configuration and utilization offer a high level of flexibility so that users can quickly adjust to modified requirements - in the emerging market in China as well as globally.
