Bosch Rexroth at EuroBLECH: High-performance bundle for beam cutting

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Manufacturers of CNC laser and plasma cutting machines are keen to significantly reduce their development times and time to market. The CNC system MTX from Bosch Rexroth helps to make this possible, for example with functions for straightforward engineering. In combination with the compact and modular drive system ctrlX DRIVE from the ctrlX AUTOMATION toolkit, it saves space and allows a high degree of scalability. Interaction with the control platform ctrlX CORE also aids connectivity and communication in Industry 4.0 – factors which are increasingly important nowadays.

“Beam cutting machines need to work quickly, precisely and reliably. At the same time, manufacturers must get their machines onto the market ever more quickly in order to remain competitive. Our CNC system MTX helps here. Among other things, it has a ready-to-use project template and high-performance functions for efficient laser cutting, e.g. height regulation, fly cut and leapfrog. This reduces not only the engineering time and costs but also the work involved if debugging is required,” explained Peter Berens, Head of Business Development Manufacturing, Business Unit Automation & Electrification Solutions at Bosch Rexroth.

Thanks to technological features such as leapfrog or frog jump, the high-performance CNC control system and suitable drive functions, users benefit too:

A reference metal sheet can now be cut 10 to 15 percent faster than before. The combination of high-performance multi-core processors and decentralized intelligent drive technology makes MTX the most powerful CNC system on the market. As a result, very high cutting speeds and acceleration are possible with maximum precision.

This solution is used in typical applications in the area of beam cutting, e.g. 2D laser cutting, plasma cutting or water jet cutting. With Industry 4.0 communication features in accordance with the OPC UA standard, the system is also ready for the world of digitalized factories.

Double power thanks to a combination of solutions

“Our solutions are open in all directions. As a result, the CNC system MTX combines perfectly with products from the ctrlX AUTOMATION world. For example, the MTX is often used together with ctrlX DRIVE, the world’s most compact modular drive system. This offers numerous advantages. For example, the automation structure and the system footprint can be minimized and energy-saving requirements can be met,” said Peter Berens.

The bundle allows quicker engineering with the engineering tool IndraWorks and offers functions for virtual commissioning and digital twins for simulation. Other solutions from the ctrlX AUTOMATION portfolio allow new scope of action and savings for beam cutting. The compact control system ctrlX CORE offers various advantages when it comes to Industry 4.0 connectivity. It provides additional functions and helps to ensure future viability. Bosch Rexroth will present all these benefits at hall 11, booth D08 at the EuroBLECH trade fair.
