Sense, connect, detect: The new sensor component for the factory of the future
Sensors are the sensory organs of the Factory of the Future, the data that they collect are the raw material for continuous process improvement and equipment effectiveness. But how can data be collected for the many upcoming IoT projects at a reasonable cost? For example, with the SCD sensor (Sense Connect Detect), in the development of which Bosch's expertise in sensor production and Bosch Rexroth's automation experience have been incorporated. The SCD can be easily attached to the desired component and records, visualizes and stores data quickly and without programming effort.

Eight-fold increase in service life with full power
With dynamic load capacities of up to 544 kN, the long-lasting PLSA Planetary Screw Assemblies from Rexroth transmit high forces particularly quickly. The product family with finely graduated spindle diameters of 20 to 75 mm covers a broad power spectrum in the top performance range and with speeds of up to 50 m/min. Equipped with a new system of pre-tensioned Single Nuts – cylindrical and with a flange – they achieve load ratings which are twice as high as for conventional pre-tensioning systems available on the market. As a result, the nominal life of the PLSA is eight times longer. PLSA are also at the heart of the EMC-HD Heavy Duty Electromechanical Cylinders.

Cast off for the journey into the future of industrial communication
Real-time wireless communication, full connectivity and interoperability from the field level to the cloud: these are all prerequisites for realizing the factory of the future. In order to actually make use of what is technically possible, all automation providers have to agree on an open standard from the field level to IoT communication. There has been great progress here: The Field Level Communication (FLC) initiative of the OPC Foundation for full interoperability of field devices is gaining momentum.
