With time more precious than ever for engineers, it can be challenging to stay abreast of the latest drive and control technologies and innovations. To give close-up insight into its latest products and services, Bosch Rexroth created a mobile, factory automation road show.
To help time-stressed engineers stay on top of the latest technologies, Bosch Rexroth is making its way across the U.S. with a mobile solution center for factory automation applications. Rexroth sales engineers are able to discuss practical solutions to real customer problems with the latest innovations close at hand. Since the inaugural trip in June, the Rexroth road show trailer has visited more than 125 companies in the Great Lakes, Central and Northeast regions of the United States. It also made a two-day stop at Bosch Connected World at the end of September in Chicago, where leading thinkers and practitioners of Industry 4.0 technologies gathered to exchange ideas and learn about the future of automation. Overall, more than 1,200 visitors have experienced the trailer so far.
Customers love the fact that they don’t have to leave their campus or fly to a trade show to see the latest in automation technology. They’re surprised by the breadth of Rexroth’s offering and impressed by the advanced capabilities the different Rexroth products exhibit when working together.
And, visitors are amazed that so much technology can fit in a trailer. It truly is a traveling trade show booth, with interactive fully powered product displays, including CNC technology, machine safety concepts: drive and PLC based, cabinet-free/synchronization solutions, fully integrated mechatronics, anti-slosh/anti-vibration solutions and VarioFlow plus conveyor systems. Products include the latest in energy efficiency and connected technologies: Open Core Engineering, electrohydraulic solutions, the Nexo cordless WiFi nutrunner, IndraDrive CS, IndraDrive ML high power drives and EasyHandling Cartesian motion robot systems.
The self-contained showroom is 28 feet long, 13 feet high and 8.6 feet wide and can be easily accommodated in most factory parking lots. The trailer has on-board climate control and video and includes a built-in awning to help shield participants from the sun.
