Industry 4.0 would be inconceivable without software. The Connected Automation portfolio from Bosch Rexroth demonstrates its full potential in terms of connectivity and time-to-market.

With innovations in its Connected Automation portfolio, Bosch Rexroth demonstrates the importance of software in automation.

Scalable: universal software, needs-based hardware

Connectable: High connectivity thanks to open architecture and i4.0 standards

Standardized: Unification of the control platforms

Efficient: Fast engineering thanks to function toolkits, templates and wizards

Vertical and horizontal connectivity, digital engineering, economic production of very small batch sizes – without software, these core characteristics of Industry 4.0 would be inconceivable. Even today, software contributes a great deal to the added value created by machines, while in the factory of the future it supplies the necessary intelligence for modular, mobile and connected production components. Using its Connected Automation portfolio, Bosch Rexroth will be demonstrating how state-of-the-art software affects competitiveness and time-to-market at the SPS IPC Drives.

Characteristic of Rexroth software in all areas is open architecture with Open Core Interface, which allows direct access to control functions and lays the foundation for highly efficient engineering. That's because controllers, drives and peripherals can be consistently and uniformly configured and controlled within the intuitively designed IndraWorks software environment – based on current Windows technologies and comprehensive wizards. Thanks to various function modules and templates, standard applications can be created simply by parameterizing. State-of-the-art tools and languages are available for explicit programming. The virtual commissioning of machines and plants makes testing safer and shortens the time-to-market. The automation solutions from Bosch Rexroth are becoming IoT-ready thanks to the integrated i4.0 standard OPC-UA.

In the field of CNC systems, the new version 14 of the MTX provides new capabilities for multi-technological machining with up to 60 channels and 250 axes. A variety of standard applications is already prepared, including bending, turning, milling, grinding, punching/nibbling, jet cutting or rotary transferring. Innovative functions make even industrial 3D printing useful for series production of small batch sizes. Customer-specific functions can also be added via the open architecture.
