Securely connected – on all levels
Industry 4.0 means connectivity – and achieving goals such as increasing productivity and tapping into new value creation potential. However, the industrial Internet of Things (IoT) poses entirely new requirements when it comes to security and thus automation solutions themselves. Because security features had to be integrated into existing products individually, it was difficult to implement an integrated concept. With the ctrlX AUTOMATION platform, Bosch Rexroth “reinvented” modern automation and thus was able to develop an integrated security concept from scratch. It is certified in accordance with IEC62443 and is an essential part of the ctrlX AUTOMATION platform.
A perfect match for the printing industry
Printing machines nowadays need to be versatile. Increasing individuality and packaging printing jobs with small print runs require quick changeover times and format changes if they are to be carried out profitably. At the same time, high precision and productivity must be guaranteed. On top of this, there is the increasing need for connectivity. Data need to be shared with other machine modules and higher-level systems.
ctrlX SERVICES: Make it your device
Automation solutions were originally designed to work with machines to cater for rigid, recurring production processes. Nowadays, the focus is on greater flexibility, new value creation potential and business models. The automation solution no longer dictates to the user what processes should be used – it is the other way around. Digital tools from the ctrlX SERVICES toolbox provide this support.
