Bosch said the acquisition enables it to offer one-stop solutions, especially for the consumer goods and mobility industry including battery production as well as for the semiconductor production.
Geek+ and Bosch Rexroth, both of which are among the largest suppliers of autonomous mobile robots and drive and control technologies, respectively, are collaborating on logistics robotics.
Because of the many options in the field of robotics, end users sometimes face a dilemma in choosing between entry-level and high-performance features. People have different perceptions of how to define performance, speed, power or expensive controls. The best approach is to use a defined set of sizing and selection criteria to determine the required […]
Compared to a Cartesian robot, a SCARA or six-axis system will generally deliver higher performance out of the box at a higher cost and with greater programming requirements, but with a smaller footprint, less weight and less rigid arm extension. On the other hand, a Cartesian system provides building blocks to create a solution that […]
1. They handle heavier loads—A 20 kg payload is no problem for a Cartesian robot, which makes money savings possible by downsizing mechanics, using smaller components and less complex controls. 2. They fit tough orientations—A Cartesian robot is able to achieve the required precision when space is tight. 3. They widen travel range—Cartesian robots work […]
Bosch Rexroth has published a brochure describing the EasyHandling solution, a comprehensive platform of components, drives and engineering software. Rexroth’s EasyHandling system is more than a modular set of mechanical components, it completes the evolutionary transition from high-quality electrical and mechanical elements to a comprehensive system solution built on standardized interfaces and interoperable controls. The brochure […]
Problems can arise in a mechatronics project because mechanical and electrical engineers often do not have sufficient experience or understanding of their counterpart’s discipline. Here is one application engineer’s advice on how to avoid five of these common problems when specifying parts for an electromechanical system. Getting the right motor is critical, which means matching […]
Services and products from hydraulics, pneumatics, electrics, and linear technology were linked by Rexroth engineers to produce a custom engineering concept for Swiss company Mikron Machining Technology. “The fact that Rexroth offers coordinated components from pneumatic, hydraulic and electric drive technology right through to high speed control enabled us to select the most suitable characteristics […]
By Richard Vaughn, Product Engineer Bosch Rexroth Corporation–Project Management Dept. In a short time, mechatronics has evolved into a universally accepted engineering concept. It integrates mechanics with electronics – and with engineering itself. The result is expanded technological capabilities and assembly-line successes like the Cartesian multi-axis robot. Because it enables more flexible automated production, users […]
