Industry 4.0 for printed electronics: bringing your machine idea to market faster

Do you want to turn your production concepts for printed electronics into reality more quickly? Take advantage of industry 4.0-enabled automation solutions from Bosch Rexroth and benefit from the integration of real machine automation with the virtual world of software. Bosch Rexroth is one of the main drivers of the fourth industrial revolution and already offers a comprehensive range of industry 4.0-enabled automation solutions.

Example of faster engineering with Bosch Rexroth system solutions: Simulate even the most complex motion sequences without hardware and achieve easily reproducible results. Replace time-consuming programming with simple configuration of predefined technology functions for high-precision roll-to-roll processes.

Learn how you can dramatically reduce 'lab to fab' time and turn your idea into a finished machine faster. Come to Rexroth booth B0 308 at LOPEC from 6 to 7 April 2016 in Munich.

Don't miss out:

  • Special talk at the LOPEC Conference on 5 April 2016:
    "Industry 4.0: Creating a competitive edge for equipment manufacturers."
  • Live demo of the final inspection scenario developed by Rexroth and Dr. Schwab GmbH at the LOPEC demo production line (booth 407)

  • Industry 4.0

    New opportunities for machine manufacturers

    Industry 4.0

    Bosch Rexroth is driving the next industrial revolution as a leading automation supplier and manufacturing company. With a huge automation portfolio and production experience from our own plants worldwide, we can offer leading automation and manufacturing solutions – from single piece to high volume production.

    Connected automation in manufacturing leads to a faster and more flexible production process, greater efficiency of material, and reduction of complexity and downtime.

    Bosch Rexroth has made a crucial breakthrough with Open Core Engineering: For the first time ever, you can go beyond PLC automation and directly access the core functions of controls and drives using high-level languages. For manufacturers of machines for printed electronics, this opens up a new world of possibilities for simulating and processing large amounts of data for quality assurance.

  • Roll-to-roll processing

    Integrated register control for maximum precision

    How to boost your productivity effectively when printing electronics: Rexroth's register control feature detects and corrects register shifts, even before they occur. This feature is directly integrated into IndraMotion MLC. You do not need any additional hardware or any additional interfaces. Since the register controller and Motion exchange information internally in hard real-time, you achieve even more precise and faster roll-to-roll processing without the need for programming.

  • Multizone web tension control

    Separate processing zones

    Multizone web tension control

    In Industry 4.0 environments, processing modules can be interconnected into one line depending on the task. Roll-to-roll processes must already meet this requirement in order to print complex electronic circuits. The challenge: Different processes require different speeds and tensions. The solution: Multi-web tension control from Rexroth. This solution allows you to separate the individual stations from each other and always ensure the right speed and tension.
