Bosch Rexroth demonstrates end-to-end automation security for networked environments

Industry networking and the associated Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are redefining security requirements – and thus also the demands on the automation solutions used. As security features often have to be individually integrated at a later date into existing products to make them secure in the networked world, an end-to-end security concept is usually not possible. With the ctrlX AUTOMATION platform, Bosch Rexroth has “reinvented” security from the ground up, and thus been able to integrate a holistic security concept from the very beginning of the design process.

Expertise for more energy efficiency

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. Intelligent concepts for sustainable management secure the future viability and competitiveness of companies. At the same time, many factories lack the skilled workers to digitally equip production facilities that are already installed, measure energy consumption and optimize it on the basis of data. This is where Bosch Rexroth comes in with its new XITE Automax 100 training system. It imparts important practical skills and knowledge for connected machines and stations. The systematic collection and evaluation of operating data creates the basis for optimizing energy efficiency and thus reducing CO2 emissions from production.

ValueStreamManager app for ActiveCockpit assists shopfloor management

Many production companies would like a modern lean management system in order to plan and implement the value stream in an optimum manner. But with high material stocks, bottlenecks and cycle times, it can be difficult to achieve greater productivity. This can be risky – after all, more and more customers are demanding quick delivery times and great product variance. In addition, companies are looking to use fewer materials, reduce wastage and minimize storage costs. With the introduction of the ValueStreamManagers (VSM) as part of the ActiveCockpit software, Bosch Rexroth offers a digital tool for establishing the optimum mix of flexibility and efficiency in production. With the VSM, the lean management method is used to manage continuous improvement processes and make them even more effective. Proven and new approaches are combined and expand the scope of the solution.
