Experience Bosch Rexroth’s complete factory automation solutions at Automate 2022
Bosch Rexroth will showcase one of the industry’s most complete solutions for factory automation and robotics at Automate 2022 on June 6-9, 2022, in Detroit, Michigan.
Located in booth 3752, Bosch Rexroth brings together a unique combination of advanced manufacturing hardware, software and engineering innovation to develop comprehensive factory automation solutions that will turn a customer’s manufacturing facility into a Factory of the Future.
The booth will feature interactive exhibits and several working systems demos, including a Smart Function Kit for Handling multi-axis Cartesian robot, as well as an autonomous mobile robot that uses Rexroth’s RoKIT locating software to navigate highly dynamic environments without human intervention. Also featured will be a demo of the ctrlX CORE controller, part of the award-winning ctrlX AUTOMATION controls and drive platform that makes automation as easy as using a smartphone.
Whether rendering manual solutions, adding modular technology, or preparing to implement full i4.0 connectivity, booth visitors are encouraged to consult with Bosch Rexroth’s factory automation experts to get strategic approaches and practical advice about how the company’s technology can help them build smarter, more productive manufacturing solutions — and deliver those solutions with maximum speed and minimal complexity.
Key booth demos include:
MP1000R Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR): Using the RoKIT Locator Software, the MP1000R is able to navigate autonomously in highly dynamic environments without additional infrastructure. The MP1000R is a flexible and scalable solution that can replace manual forklifts and tuggers in manufacturing spaces, leading to improved efficiency, and help protect workers from potential injury.
Flexible Transport System (FTS): This working system demonstrates a magnetically propelled pallet transport system for high transfer speeds and precise pallet positioning that allows for independent and synchronized pallet movement, as well as integration into a traditional conveyor system.
Smart Function Kit for Handling: The kiosk includes a presentation that highlights features & benefits of the Smart Function Kit for Handling, combined with a working Cartesian multi-axis system, whose configuration output can be created by booth visitors using adjacent Bosch Rexroth eTools software demonstration. The exhibit will present how predefined multi-axis combinations can be easily sized, configured and ordered as one part number. In addition, the Smart Function Kit for Handling software app running on ctrlX allows fast commissioning through auto parameterization of the servo drive.
ctrlX AUTOMATION Cube: This unique four-sided demonstration exhibit showcases the key capabilities of the ctrlX CORE automation controller. The exhibit uses a working ctrlX CORE controller to highlight the system’s connectivity through various automation and IT networks. Along with details about new ctrlX AUTOMATION apps from third-party suppliers, booth visitors will be able to see how the ctrlX CORE communicates with other demos in the booth and be able to program motion sequences for the Smart Function Kit for Handling demo system.
