A young Berlin-based company is developing durable, freely combinable machines with an innovative punching process for the plastics industry. A key feature is the highly dynamic servodrive technology from Bosch Rexroth. It meets the highest demands as regards functionality and impresses with its high performance.
Both machine manufacturers and users are keen to achieve efficiency gains through automation. The trend here is for increasingly simple processes. And engineering is no exception. Solutions that support people and lighten their load are highly sought-after. This is where ctrlX AUTOMATION and its ctrlX SERVICES come into play. In keeping with the motto âEngineer easilyâ, the software as a service provides kits of components, for example the Software Development Kit (SDK) designed to make software development easy, a virtual control environment and digital twin and simulation solutions designed to ensure that reliable processes are achieved throughout the development stage, commissioning and operations.
Whether in relation to components, machinery or complete production processes, these days digital twins play an important role in product lifecycles. As digital replicas of products or processes, they depict their properties, status and behavior and hence connect the real world with a virtual one. As such, they ensure reliable processes throughout the development stage, commissioning and operations and can be used for optimization purposes and to improve quality and increase efficiency. The potential that digital twins possess can also be leveraged for ctrlX AUTOMATION.
âDer Deutsche Innovationspreisâ goes to Bosch Rexroth
An innovation that changes an entire market: ctrlX AUTOMATION from Bosch Rexroth completely redefines automation in industry. This innovative power has now been underlined with an important award: âDer Deutsche Innovationspreisâ 2021. This initiative, founded in 2010 by WirtschaftsWoche, Accenture, and EnBW, named Bosch Rexroth the winner in the âLarge Companiesâ category on June 25 under the patronage of German Federal Minister Peter Altmaier. The award ceremony took place as a digital event.
Machine vision is an integral part of automation, whereby products are used which control automated processes based on industrial camera systems. HD Vision Systems facilitates automation by means of visually guided object localization, tracking and detection as well as QR code scanning. The company now provides these functions as well as interfaces to standard area scan cameras as a vision suite in the ecosystem of the Bosch Rexroth automation platform ctrlX AUTOMATION. In addition, the two companies are developing customized machine vision products as well as a use case for object recognition and oriented placement by means of a Cartesian robot.
HONORED WITH âPLANT ENGINEERING PRODUCT OF THE YEARâ AWARD
