SCHUNK automated by ctrlX AUTOMATION
Clamping and gripping systems play a key role in the flexibility and precision of automated manufacturing processes. Acting as a direct interface to the work piece, they perform central functions in machine loading, among other areas. SCHUNK, the expertise and world-market leader for gripping systems and clamping technology, applies the highest level of precision, flexibility and innovation in its solutions. To help it achieve this goal, the company uses Bosch Rexroth’s ctrlX AUTOMATION. The automation platform makes it possible, among other things, to control complex gripping and clamping processes as well as to test and shape software development.
ctrlX developR – EPISODE #11 Graphical Programming
ctrlX AUTOMATION is about maximum simplicity and usability. We make it much easier to program on the ctrlX CORE for example in ongoing production and to provide machine operators with the necessary building blocks to make changes to the code quickly.
And this is why we have turned graphical programming into a separate application, which is based on Google Blockly and creates Python scripts for example.
ctrlX developR – EPISODE #10 Python
Python is an interpreted, high-level and general-purpose programming language. Python's design philosophy emphasizes code readability with its notable use of significant whitespace. Its language constructs and object-oriented approach aim to help programmers write clear, logical code for small and large-scale projects.*
In episode 10 of ctrlX developR, Johannes joins Christian to talk about the Python programming language - and what you can do with Python and ctrlX AUTOMATION, especially in the area of artificial intelligence.

Now available: Compact control platform ctrlX CORE
Bosch Rexroth has defined the industrial control system of the future with its compact ctrlX CORE control system. With its open and flexible architecture, the control platform removes the boundaries between the IPC, embedded system and drive-based technology platforms. This scalable “all-purpose control system” offers numerous advantages such as a fewer component requirement and a reduced engineering effort as well as higher productivity. The embedded control system is now available in series production.
Bosch Rexroth at the SPS Connect
With its ctrlX AUTOMATION platform, Bosch Rexroth is exploring completely new avenues in automation and is bringing together control technologies, IT and the IoT to create an open, scalable system. The company will demonstrate how this works at the virtual SPS Connect trade fair from 24 to 26 November 2020. Here, Bosch Rexroth will present the automation platform with its latest innovations.
