This creates optimal solutions and existing users can migrate to ctrlX AUTOMATION as needed.

The everyday life of a developer has changed. Software for machine automation is becoming increasingly complex, and the developer’s tasks often go beyond pure programming. With ctrlX AUTOMATION and the associated Software Development Kit (SDK), Bosch Rexroth makes the specific development and provision of apps extremely simple. For one, users have the option of integrating their own software and know-how into the ctrlX AUTOMATION ecosystem. In addition, the automation platform is open for apps from third-party providers and the user can employ existing apps from Bosch Rexroth.
