Connected Automation

More efficient automation with explosion protection

You think that drives for potentially explosive areas are complex to implement or technologically suboptimal? In this way you simplify your engineering and play in the first league on the automation side. Are you automating in potentially explosive areas and tired of having to make compromises when choosing a drive solution? Regarding performance, intelligence, connection

Trends in the machine tool – Part 1

Classic qualities remain in demand Machine tools are rightly considered to be technology carriers and trailblazers for other industries in mechanical engineering. They frequently are the first to try new technologies and optimize existing ones. For this reason, machinery users expect every new piece of equipment to increase productivity.  The users of machine tools face

An immediate insight into production

Did you think IoT machine optimization is complicated and time-consuming? With this complete solution, you can get started straight away and achieve your first results after just a few minutes. With no laborious preparations or annoying programming. Stop your IoT headaches Are you one of those people who urgently want to optimize machines, workstations or

The product carousel turns – cabinet free into the future

Do you ask yourself how to produce smallest quantities in an economically viable manner? That is no problem in the factory of the future: You are able to move your machines within the factory hall or take processing stations out of a production line, reposition them and then continue production at the push of a

Achieving more together

DMS and Bosch Rexroth are driving forward building automation.   Needs-based maintenance, smart buildings, cloud computing and effective data protection: a building automator who wants to remain competitive in the long term must embrace the latest trends in the sector. In view of this fact, DMS, Digitale Mess- und Steuersysteme AG has been a partner

Saving up to 90% time with PLC-free programming and commissioning

However efficient PLC programming for complex tasks may be, it is often relatively time-consuming for simple and moderately complex automation solutions. In light of scarce internal resources, machine manufacturers are looking for ways to speed up engineering and shorten delivery times. A new solution is Sequential Motion Control SMC, a virtually universal technology function for

Digital assistant reduces machine downtimes

Service app makes it easier to diagnose faults and passes on expert knowledge Time is money! – This is particularly true when it comes to maintaining machines and systems in factory automation. Every minute that production is stopped costs money – often a lot of money. Maintenance technicians are measured by how quickly they can

Safety on Board: Flexible and efficient with functional safety in drive systems – Part 2

With the dialog-based and universally supported engineering software IndraWorks, Bosch Rexroth ensures the shortest possible configuration and commissioning times for safety-related applications. Thanks to an extensive library of ready-made functional building blocks and numerous wizards which further reduce the engineering time, the programming work which previously took a considerable amount of time has now been

Safety on Board: functional safety in drive systems speeds up engineering – Part 1

While international and regional standards for machine safety become ever stricter, manufacturers have to implement increasingly complex concepts more and more quickly. With its drive-integrated safety functions, Bosch Rexroth shows an economical way of ensuring maximum protection for people and machines while increasing productivity, ergonomics and efficiency in engineering.   Uncontrolled movements pose significant hazards.

IoT use cases implemented quicker with multi-sensors – Part 3

Multi-sensors are an extension of the sensory organs of employees in the factory of the future. The new SCD Sensor from Bosch Rexroth concentrates several sensors at once on the smallest space possible. The technicians of tomorrow therefore already have diverse options to collect data more cost-effectively and implement IoT use cases quicker and easier.
