Digitalization of industrial hydraulics creates added value along the entire process chain

Both the manufacturers of machines and systems and end users face increasingly stiff global competition. Investment decisions are made on a more short-term basis and OEMs need to come up with individually tailored machine and system concepts more quickly. Product variance and thus the requirements as regards the adaptability of production systems are increasing. At the same time, system availability is a key factor when it comes to productivity. In addition to all these technical issues, the mechanical and plant engineering sectors – especially hydraulics – are faced with a worsening lack of specialist staff.

ctrlX AUTOMATION apps pave the way for Engineering 4.0

Digitalized processes, increasing customization, short lead times and further requirements are changing how engineers work in industries such as mechanical engineering. As such, they need tools that can support them in carrying out their daily tasks, some of which are completely new to them. Bosch Rexroth is therefore gradually expanding its ctrlX AUTOMATION platform and related ecosystem with apps for modern engineering. These help, for example, to speed up the engineering process as software development is accounting for an increasingly large proportion of the time involved in mechanical engineering.

Ergonomic, sustainable and economical

Assembly lines often have to be adapted to new products. An ever-increasing product variance requires flexibility at the workstation. At the same time, the focus is on increasing the performance and health protection of employees. With the introduction of the SL LED Basic system lamp, Bosch Rexroth meets current and future market requirements. Thanks to the innovative DIM box, which can supply power to several lamps, the lamps are extremely compact. The new product variants not only enable flexible assembly for individual ergonomic workstations, but also offer an energy-efficient and economical solution.

FRAMEpro brings Bosch Rexroth’s modular profile system into CAD environments

With the new FRAMEpro CAD plug-in, Bosch Rexroth allows its proven basic mechanic elements for machine frames and housings to be transferred straight to the CAD environments Autodesk® Inventor and SOLIDWORKS from Dassault. Users of both systems can thus reduce the engineering time and avoid errors owing to media breaks and potential incorrect entries. From now on, automatically set connections and profile configurations, automatic adjustments in the event of changes, intelligent macros and useful functions will save valuable time during planning and construction work using Bosch Rexroth’s proven modular aluminum profile system.
