Smart Press Kit from Bosch Rexroth

October 2019 System Integration & Control Systems Design

Bosch Rexroth is setting new standards for fast and efficient pressing and joining applications with its innovative new modular Smart Press Kit. Designed to meet future industrial requirements by providing a complete mechatronic package across a wide range of pressing and joining applications, the kit functions according to the Plug and Produce principle, and will be supplied in sub-Saharan Africa through Tectra Automation.

Industry requirements and processes are shifting away from individual products to complete system kits. In the factory of the future, machines, production lines and storage systems will collaborate within a network composed of cyber-physical systems (CPS) that will be capable of autonomously exchanging information, triggering actions and controlling one another. The Smart Press Kit is an innovative solution on the road to Smart Factory. It delivers swift, easy commissioning with automatic configuration.

The modular kit consists of synchronised hardware and software components: electromechanical cylinder and power sensor, servo motor, drive controller, industrial PC and browser-based HMI software. Pre-selected mechanical, electrical and software components are combined in various kits for forces from 2 to 30 kN.

Automatic parameterisation of the servo drive, pre-installed operating software and a minimal number of interfaces, the kit simplifies configuration and commissioning, maximises transparency, reduces downtime and increases productivity, saving up to 95% engineering time. The new software with an intuitive, modern design is Industry 4.0 capable thanks to a connection via OPC-UA, and no programming knowledge is required.

Ideal for applications where simplicity and rapid commissioning are all important criteria, the Smart Press Kit has wide application across industry. It can be used for assembly, joining, forming and testing applications. “The Smart Press Kit can be used as a standalone solution or as an integrated solution,” concludes Tectra Automation product manager Julie van den berg. “It is the perfect addition to complement our offerings across industrial and factory automation applications in sub-Saharan Africa.”
