Connected Automation

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, and wirelessly transfers the measured data to higher level IT systems reliably for several years. The technicians of tomorrow therefore already have

Digital multimeter as an icebreaker for IoT projects – Part 2

With the new SCD Sensor, Bosch Rexroth now meets the omnipresent requirement of machine manufacturers and users for considerably easier and cheaper data collection. This is possible both in already networked environments and in combination with non-connective products.   Sense Connect Detect – the new SCD Sensor from Bosch Rexroth The innovative digital all-rounder for

IoT sensors: The senses of the Factory of the Future – Part 1

Sensors are the sensory organs of the factory of the future. To cover as many IoT applications as cost-effectively as possible, they must communicate wirelessly and energy-efficiently and simplify what has to date been complex data collection.   Data collection in IoT projects is too time-consuming Data is the raw material of the factory of

Data continuity for a perfect simulation

The simulation of processing in machine tools has been an established practice for many years. In widespread use, simulation systems are deployed to emulate CNC functionality through control models. Where these meet their limits, simulation based on the real CNC kernel offers further help. One problem still remains though: How to input the required application

Economical and intelligent: Handling solutions reconceived

The market for handling and robotic solutions is highly price-driven, yet still leaves room for disruptive ideas. Bosch Rexroth provides proof of this with an advanced solution package for Cartesian kinematics. It combines an economical industrial controller with state-of-the-art web technology and assured instruction via a standard tablet. The result: minimum investment costs and maximum
