Rexroth 4EE - Rexroth for Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency – our joint responsibility for climate protection

As long as power generation entails CO2 emissions and internal-combustion engines produce exhaust gas, striving to use energy efficiently will help protect the climate. This applies to stationary as well as mobile machines. Together, machine manufacturers, machine users, and Bosch Rexroth can lower energy consumption significantly - with equal or better productivity.


You want to reduce energy costs and emissions. While doing so, also increase your productivity.

Systematically combining energy efficiency and productivity: the four levers of Rexroth 4EE act across all technologies and applications. They guide us in the development of new products and system solutions. We already keep this systematic approach in mind in the concept development phase and work with machine manufacturers to develop perfect solutions. By the way: We also implement Rexroth 4EE in our own plants in order to reduce our CO2 emissions. This is our contribution to climate protection.


Mobile Applications

Ever more stringent emission standards are setting the pace: We develop energy efficient solutions for manufacturers of mobile machines that help them lower diesel consumption and in turn reduce exhaust emissions – with at least equal performance.

Machinery Applications and Engineering

Generating high forces with utmost precision – and only when needed: The optimal interaction between hydraulics and digital control systems combined with Rexroth's various technologies lowers the energy consumption of plastic machines, presses and large-scale plants while at the same time increasing productivity.


Factory Automation

Energy efficiency in series: We support machine manufacturers already in the concept development phase by advising them on a comprehensive and industry-specific basis on ways to increase the energy efficiency of series machines and production lines throughout their entire life cycle.




Variable speed pump drives for hydraulic drive systems provide on-demand performance as needed, thereby lowering energy consumption by up to 80 percent.

Smart Energy Mode

Smart Energy Mode

Exploit the possibilities of supplying and recovering braking energy to the fullest extent with the intelligent energy management system "Smart Energy Mode" offered with IndraDrive drive systems.

Rexroth 4EE in real life

The implementation of Rexroth 4EE in the overhaul of a folding press reduces the system's energy consumption by up to 43 percent even with short auxiliary process times.



Know-how for higher energy efficiency


Knowing the interactions between various technologies within a system and combining them to maximize energy efficiency and productivity: We will be happy to advise you already in the concept development phase and put our technology know-how and industry experience at your disposal.
