Productivity.be - On the first day of the Hannover Messe Digital Edition, the Hermes Award was presented, which this year goes to Bosch Rexroth for developing the first SIL 3 electric actuator for underwater installations, especially in the offshore oil and gas sector. The SVA R2, where SVA stands for Subsea Valve Actuator, offers more precise control with lower energy consumption.
Bosch Rexroth - It is often the case that younger designers and engineers have hardly had any experience of hydraulics as part of their training. They are primarily concerned with software and think along digital lines. They are only really interested in the movements and the resulting data. Drive physics is what makes the difference in many cases here.
Bosch Rexroth - With the new ctrlX AUTOMATION platform, Bosch Rexroth has eradicated the traditional boundaries between machine control systems, IT and the Internet of Things. Centralized and decentralized automation topologies can now be created flexibly with the scalable platform. Thanks to a Linux real-time operating system, open standards, app programming technology, web-based engineering and a comprehensive IoT connection, ctrlX AUTOMATION reduces the engineering time and effort by 30 to 50%.
Bosch Rexroth - Connecting machines and facilities with IT systems opens up enormouspotential for making forming technology more economical, quicker andmore intuitive. This is exactly where the new CytroBox hydraulic powerunit from Bosch Rexroth comes in. With its intelligent, energy-efficientmodular design, it provides a new solution approach for the mediumperformance range from 7.5 to 30 kW. By integrating IoT technologies, italso paves the way for consistently implementing Industry 4.0 concepts.
