Explore the Real-life Impact of Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 changes the rules of the game for manufacturing. Connecting real machines with information technologies and the Internet increases productivity.

Companies that use new technologies for industry 4.0 are more competitive because they produce at lower costs and meet customer needs with more flexibility. One thing is certain: Industry 4.0 is coming. Companies that are prepared to implement industry 4.0 now will actively shape and lead the change.

From Our Customers

Building up new lines is always a challenge – technically and organizationally. But it’s worth it. In the industry 4.0 environment, all useful information is available, at any time, in any location, making it possible to economically produce individualized products and small batches. Technology supports people better than ever before. Companies that implement industry 4.0 produce faster, with more flexibility, greater efficiency of material and reduced complexity and downtime.

See a practical application of Industry 4.0 at the new build-up production line at Bosch Rexroth’s plant in Homburg, Germany. Without any modification of the machine, we assemble more than 200 different hydraulic valves on one multi-product line. The result: flexible and economically efficient assembling that yields 10% more output and a reduction of stock by 30%.

Existing machines can often be incorporated into industry 4.0 at little expense. Modern machines generally have PLC or NC controls that are internally connected through fieldbuses. The modernization of the control hardware and communication interfaces is often sufficient for the machines to be able to exchange data with other machines and IT using open standards.

If you are working with older machines that may not meet these requirements, you should make sure that newly installed components can be connected when undertaking modernization measures.

Here we show industry 4.0 in practice on existing machines at our Bosch Rexroth plant in Lohr, Germany. The challenge was to manage 200,000 different product variations while producing small batch sizes. We upgraded the facility to become a fully connected shop floor with high transparency and zero set-uptime in a paperless shop floor.
