New perspectives for factory automation

Bosch Rexroth develops Smart MechatroniX into a solution landscape and presents a world first for robots

Bosch Rexroth continues to drive the digital transformation of linear motion technology and is further developing its Smart MechatroniX platform. With new products and solutions, mechanical engineering and production companies can increase their level of automation cost-effectively and simplify their system design at the same time. In addition to the new Smart Function Kit Dispensing, Bosch Rexroth is presenting the Smart Flex Effector, another world first: The intelligent, sensor-based compensation module gives robots human-like sensitivity and allows complex processes to be automated. The Smart MechatroniX platform is also being expanded with new partner solutions on an ongoing basis.
In 2019, Rexroth Linear Motion Technology started focusing on the Factory of the Future. The Smart MechatroniX solutions developed for this purpose reflect global market requirements: Flexibility and sustainability, intelligence and connectivity, transparency and profitability. Recognizing that users are looking for an effective and economical way to increase their level of automation, Bosch Rexroth is constantly expanding the Smart MechatroniX platform. The new products and solutions are much more intelligent, flexible, connected and software-based and allow even manual assembly processes which were prone to disruptions to be automated. In this way, Bosch Rexroth contributes both to the economical production of different lot sizes and to greater competitiveness and cost-effectiveness.

New: Plug and produce
for dispensing tasks

Following on from the Smart Function Kit for pressing and joining applications and the Smart Function Kit for handling tasks, Bosch Rexroth has added another package of solutions to its range of mechatronic subsystems. The Smart Function Kit Dispensing is based on a multi-axis system which can be selected digitally, configured online and ordered in just a few minutes. The fully pre-aligned subsystem for spreading, filling or spraying is supplied ready to install – with innovative control technology, energy supply, motors, connecting elements and pre-installed operating software. Thanks to the intuitive set-up procedure with the help of a wizard and visual process definition, commissioning, process configuration and, optionally, connection to a higher-level control system now take just a few minutes. As a result, the Smart Function Kit helps companies to start production sooner and increases their competitiveness.
The Smart Function Kit Dispensing is based on a Cartesian multi-axis system which can be selected digitally, configured online and ordered in just a few minutes.
