Designing with digital twins
The digitisation of engineering has already begun. We are currently simplifying the rapid design of individual solutions with online selection aids and configurators for all automation technologies.
Design engineers use calculation aids and simulation programs to check the design. Parallel to machine assembly, we support the virtual commissioning of control systems. Software Wizards propose suitable parameters to the commissioning engineers of hydraulic axes. In a next step, we are partnering with IT manufacturers such as Dassault Systems for completely digital engineering. In the future, each component and function will be represented by a digital twin. They form the basis for a continuously digitized value stream.
Transparency for intralogistics
While manufacturing has already achieved a high degree of transparency through production systems, intralogistics is in many cases still a kind of black box. Nexeed Track & Trace continuously monitors the position and environmental conditions of components. This prevents damaged components being installed that can later lead to quality problems. Nexeed Intralogistics Execution uses the systematics of manufacturing execution systems to avoid waste and increase efficiency.
With the ActiveShuttle, we will offer a smart, autonomous transport system for future intralogistics. In the first product version, the guided vehicle transports lean dollies that are loaded with bin (KLT) or similar. The autonomous transport system offers a solution in which a wide variety of transport concepts can be implemented - cyclical transports as well as demand-oriented material supply.
ActiveShuttle is a concept car and will expand the Bosch Rexroth product range in the Assembly Technology area.
Software wizards lead technicians logically through the commissioning process of electro-hydraulic axis. Based on decades of application experience forged into software, they suggest fitting parameters in order to reach stable results quickly, even without deep expertise in fluid technology.
