Rexroth to exhibit advanced machine automation and control solutions at PACK EXPO 2013

Demonstrations of drive, motion and controls products along with in-depth presentations of engineering software tools and a range of pneumatic solutions will be shown at booth S-5919 at PACK EXPO 2013 in Las Vegas, September 23-25.

During PACK EXPO 2013, applications experts from Bosch Rexroth will present working demonstrations of drive, motion and controls products, including the company’s Mechatronics @ Work exhibit; the award-winning Open Core Engineering platform; and a new machine safety offering. The Rexroth booth will also include a special Innovation Corner, where visitors can attend in-depth presentations to learn about the company’s sophisticated programming, control and design software.

Mechatronics @ Work automation exhibit
The dynamic Mechatronics @ Work exhibit demonstrates Rexroth’s unique ability to integrate a host of proven drive, control, pneumatic, linear motion and assembly components into high-performance mechatronics systems.

This innovative working model demonstrates how Rexroth’s wide range of complementary technologies can improve energy efficiency, optimize throughput, and create systems whose productivity and modularity add long term value. The display integrates electric drives and controls, linear modules, pneumatics and a flexible chain conveyor in a multi-axis pick-and-place continuous loop operation.

Over 15 different Rexroth technologies have been integrated into the company’s Mechatronics @ Work demonstration. Proven systems such as the VarioFlow chain conveyor, IndraMotion MLC control platform and VKK linear feed modules have been seamlessly combined with cutting-edge technology like the CKL linear module with ironless linear motor and the latest version of Rexroth’s award-winning IndraDrive Mi integrated motor/drive unit into a fully working machine.

Open Core Engineering
Rexroth’s Open Core Engineering platform is an innovative approach to connect PLC and IT automation, with a tool that gives developers a greater degree of freedom in software engineering. OEMs can flexibly access the control core of the Rexroth IndraMotion MLC and IndraLogic XLC controller systems from applications that are based on high-level languages. This allows them to create customized solutions independently and more easily, and at a lower cost than before.

SafeLogic compact safety solution
Scalable safety is made easy to implement with the SafeLogic compact control version from Rexroth. It is the ideal solution for safe logic processing in small to mid-range machines. The control can be expanded as the number of peripherals increases. Defined functional modules and graphic wiring simplify configuration and speed up the commissioning process.

Pneumatic Solutions for the Food and Packaging Industry
A variety of pneumatics solutions will be featured, specially designed for use in the food and packaging industry, including the CL03 valve terminal system and the AV03 compact, lightweight valve. Pneumatic components from Rexroth enable hygienic handling of food products and efficient packaging of all types of products.

Innovation Corner
Throughout the show, Rexroth engineers will host multiple presentations demonstrating the company’s unique controls authoring tools and software platforms. These informative twenty-minute sessions provide guidance on common control design, authoring and commissioning challenges encountered by machine designers. Topics include: How to maximize machine productivity through faster changeovers; how to design and implement a safer packaging machine faster, and an overview of Rexroth’s new Open Core Engineering concept that helps enable remote access through mobile apps.
