October 10, 2019
Bosch Rexroth will showcase key steps to building the Factory of the Future at Booth 531 at The Assembly Show 2019 in Rosemont, Illinois from October 22-24. 

Bosch Rexroth’s goal is to help manufacturers create an effective roadmap to make the best use of Industry 4.0 technology, improving their operations and competitive capabilities.

Rexroth has organized the exhibits and demonstrations to help manufacturers learn about and step through key points on the journey to the Factory of the Future — whether they’re seeking to add digital assistant capabilities to manual production solutions, looking to add modular technology that incorporates new sensors to capture production data or are ready for full i4.0 connectivity across their operations.
Key product highlights in the Rexroth booth will include: Lean Implementation with Aluminum Framing, Technology Integration in Workstations, Data Collection with Mechatronics@Work, Data Analysis and Visualization with IoT Gateway, Monitoring Machine Health with ActiveMover, and Factory-wide Intelligence with Smart Assembly 4.0 Conveyors.

Bosch Rexroth will also debut two new products during The Assembly Show:

•Smart Function Kit: This new, modular mechatronics package consists of mechanical components, electrical components and software and is immediately ready for use across a wide range of standardized pressing and joining applications. It’s a smart, complete solution that simplifies product selection and configuration as well as commissioning.

•GoSelectTM: This new online ordering tool is designed to streamline product selection and make cost quoting a breeze. The user-friendly interface offers pricing and availability on hundreds of products. Users can instantly download CAD drawings which are available in a variety of formats, including PDF3D, STEP, IGES and DXF. During the show, be sure to check out the various workshops, including two informative presentations from Rodney Rusk, Industry 4.0 leader for Bosch Rexroth Corporation.
