Digital Transformation

Flexible, modular technology

The future of machine manufacturing requires more flexible, increasingly integrated, and swifter technology.

The demand for these improved and increasingly complex products is constantly on the rise, with the additional pressure of rapid market delivery.

Bosch Rexroth offers critical automation to enhance productivity, including:

  • Efficient engineering
  • Consistent connection
  • More common diagnosis for all drive technology

We’ll achieve your specified manufacturing and assembly layouts, including manual and industrial automation workstations and self-sustaining controls.

Advantages of automation for your business

Bosch Rexroth helps customers detect where and how their production process can be more efficient and more cost-effective.

With increasingly sophisticated machine automation and motion control, Bosch Rexroth technology advances your company with the following features:

  • Increased employee safety
  • Minimised cycle times of production
  • Replace hazardous / high-risk working conditions with industrial robots or devices
  • Reduce manual checks and preventative maintenance
  • Consistent, high-quality products

We give our customers greater control of production processes, with more efficient handling and internal logistics.

Our automation reduces direct human contact on production processes. By minimising the scope for human error, any adverse impacts on product quality are additionally minimised, improving product consistency and conformity.

Furthermore, our automation reduces assembly time which improves production rate.

We work to maintain your manufacturing process and production systems at optimal performance with maximum efficiency, improved project management and the lowest total cost of ownership.

Innovative automation

Gearing our automation innovations towards the 4th industrial revolution, our solutions focus on increasing output at reduced unit cost, improving quality, lessening product time to market and enhancing production flexibility in responding to dynamic demands.

Our manufacturing engineers are constantly working on the ground, testing products and solutions, with daily users in mind.

This allows for tangible insights to be directly incorporated into development specifications, meeting users’ needs and improving technology functionality.

Additionally, as early adaptors of industrial and factory automation solutions, Bosch Rexroth has experience in maximising the benefits, advantages, and opportunities that Industry 4.0 has brought.

Smart automation techniques and technology

Bosch Rexroth offers leading automation techniques, specific to our customer’s system requirements.

Smart Industrial Automation

To create process dependable tightening connections, our intelligent tightening systems use integrated torque and rotation sensors and intelligent software functionalities.

These tools are assimilated into your industrial automation environment, via cable or wireless via WLAN, in a wide selection of interfaces and protocols to exchange commands and data.

Factory automation

Our IMS-A integrated measuring system detects the absolute position with high precision, even harsh environments.

This acts as both a guiding and measuring device, a smart factory automation solution for your factory environment.

Connectivity and productivity

Automation and control solutions are completely dependent on connectivity and communication across the entire value creation process, with open standards being an imperative.

Our automation solutions create connections between OT and IT, with both suppliers and manufacturers included, and across the whole process of value creation.

We work with research organisations, OEMs, manufacturers, system integrators and leading IT companies to ensure open standards are met.

Our partners and customers operate within their preferred development environment and programming languages, allowing optimised efficiency and agility in their automation system.

The complete automation solution

ctrlX AUTOMATION breaks boundaries between machine controls, the IT world and the Internet of Things, as the game changer to open ecosystem operations.

Through Linux real-time operating system, consistently open standards, app programming technology, web-based engineering and a comprehensive IoT connection, cntrlX AUTOMATION increases your system’s productivity and efficiency.
