Smart Shell, Stuttgart

One of the structures put into motion by Bosch Rexroth is the south stand at the Veltins Arena, home of Schalke 04. The stand is equipped with a hydraulic drive which allows it to be moved as necessary in order to reconfigure the arena as needed.

The Caja Mágica tennis stadium in Madrid has a series of retractable roofs, so that, with a simple push of a button, the three open air courts can be transformed into covered arenas for other events.

The Amsterdam ArenA features a sliding roof realized with our solutions, and in cooperation with the University of Stuttgart, we have developed the first-ever adaptive shell structure. Moreover, Bosch Rexroth is involved in research activities, working for instance on vibration dampening for bridges.
