Unpack, connect, go

In times of increasing uncertainty, it is becoming a key criterion for many companies to be able to quickly adapt their production. Flexibility is not only required of employees – the systems also need to be flexibly transformable to new production processes. New solutions have to facilitate easy and quick adaptation and just as fast commissioning. The digitalization of what seem to be pure mechanical components, such as in Linear Motion Technology, helps with the technical implementation.

Bosch Rexroth achieves stable sales at previous year’s record level in 2019

Bosch Rexroth held up well in 2019 in a difficult environment and despite a sharp drop in incoming orders. At 6.2 billion euros, sales remained stable at the previous year’s record level. The company benefited from a solid core business in hydraulics and the further expansion of its product range in factory automation as an important door opener for new markets.

Systematic: function-integrated profiles from Rexroth with internal cable guide

When machine frames are designed, cabling is often not given any thought or is at best an afterthought. The profiles are usually retrofitted with cable ducts, subsequently altering the design and increasing the assembly and installation work involved. However, thanks to our innovative profile junctions, Bosch Rexroth’s new function-integrated profiles (FIPs) feature a fully internal cable guide that can run through and out of our profile butt junctions. The FIP range comprises four profile cross-sections for market launch with a catalog of accessories which also complements the modular system. The entire solution can be combined with the established Rexroth modular profile system and provides an unprecedented level of design flexibility.

IMScompact: guidance and measuring requiring no additional space

With its sensor system completely integrated in the ball runner block, the new IMScompact integrated measuring system determines the exact position with a high repetition accuracy of ± 1 µm. IMScompact enhances the range of linear guides with integrated measuring systems from size 15, making the measuring system for ball rail systems a compact and cost-effective extension for smaller machines. The integration into the runner block ensures high EMC protection, which means IMScompact is also suitable for use in combination with linear motors. The measuring system is not subject to wear and either incremental or absolute. It increases precision and dynamics, particularly for handling applications or general automation solutions.

Bosch Rexroth and Geek+ join forces in robotics

Geek+, a leading global robotics developer, will adopt the Bosch Rexroth software component Locator in future logistics solutions. The Locator provides reliable positioning and orientation for mobile robots in a wide range of industries and application areas, without any infrastructural measures. The two companies came to a cooperation agreement within just a few weeks. Geek+ was founded in 2015 and has since sold more than 10,000 robots for logistics applications.

Compact automation for intralogistics

In the case of travelling drives in storage and retrieval machines and large portal axes, as well as in control cabinet-based handling systems, users can reduce energy consumption with each movement and minimize the control cabinet by using lighter and more compact drives. Here Bosch Rexroth is setting new standards with the automation platform ctrlX AUTOMATION. The ctrlX DRIVE drives require up to 50 percent less installation space and are up to 35 percent lighter. The coupled DC link and the Smart Energy Mode software function reduce the required connected load by up to 70 percent.
