Bosch Rexroth Introduces Factory of the Future Experience
May 31, 2019
“In the factory of the future connectivity is key,” said Heiko Schwindt, Bosch Rexroth vice president of automation and electrification. “Everything is connected, from field level to cloud-based solutions. Sophisticated software solutions collect, transfer and process manufacturing data to provide maximum production transparency. With our Factory of the Future Experience, Bosch Rexroth is demonstrating to end-user businesses and their machine builders how they can make the Factory of the Future a reality of the present – where mobile and connected production equipment reconfigure themselves independently and flexibly to fast-changing requirements.”
Located at the Bosch Rexroth Automation & Electrification business unit in Hoffman Estates, IL, outside of Chicago, the company’s Factory of the Future Experience is a multi-technology exhibit featuring intelligent, distributed drive and control components, connectivity modules, compact and versatile linear products, innovative chain conveyors and a wide selection of structural framing – all of which make it possible to expand machines and systems as necessary in a modular fashion.
During a tour through the Factory of the Future Experience, attendees can experience new technology and hear about key topics – from open standards, to distributed intelligence, smart automation and connecting to the Internet of Things – to learn what is required to implement a factory of the future. In addition, Rexroth‘s automation experts address challenges and consult on how to achieve productivity gains, production transparency and maximum flexibility.
“Imagine a factory where you can change everything directly from the floor, roof and walls within a few days or even hours. Increasingly short production life cycles, smaller batch sizes and individual product design and forms mark the requirements for future production, which have full flexibility, and are individual and scalable. This is the Factory of the Future,” said Schwindt.
