Plug & Produce - with the electromechanical kit for easy joining applications

07.07.2019 11:01


Bosch Rexroth’s new Smart Press Kit is designed to meet future industrial requirements and provides a mechatronic complete package that is immediately ready for use across an extremely wide range of standardized pressing and joining applications. The modular kit, consisting of mechanical components, electrical components and software, simplifies product selection and configuration as well as commissioning. The Smart Press Kit can be connected via open interfaces and conveniently monitored on a tablet during operations. This maximizes transparency, reduces downtime and increases productivity. 

The easy, fast and attractively priced solution has been specially designed for pressing and joining processes in the low force range of 2 to 30 kN. The modular system consists of perfectly synchronized hardware and software components: electromechanical cylinder and power sensor, servo motor, drive controller, industrial PC and browserbased HMI software based on HTML 5.

There are numerous different potential areas of application for the new Smart Press Kit – it is ideal for applications where simplicity, fast commissioning and an attractive price are all important criteria. These include press-fitting bearings in housings, crimping cables and hoses as well as inserting, for example, integration of magnets in lamination stacks. Furthermore, the Smart Press Kit is cost-effective at forming processes, such as bending, embossing and deep drawing in the plastics industry. The system is also suitable for measurement and test procedures as well as test stands across an extremely wide range of sectors. The Smart Press Kit can either be used as a standalone solution or integrated into superior systems via field bus. As such, Bosch Rexroth is setting new cross-industry standards for easy pressing and joining applications. 

Fast product selection and commissioning

After the right Smart Press Kit size has been chosen with the selection and sizing tool LinSelect, the final configuration process is carried out in the online configurator. CAD files can then be downloaded and the desired configuration can be ordered via the Rexroth e-shop. All components are delivered as one complete package.

The true highlights of the Smart Press Kit are the intuitive commissioning and process configuration, meaning programming knowledge is not required. The preinstalled operating software, the autoparameterization of the servo drive, the low number of interfaces and a wizard – thanks to the integrated motion control – make fast commissioning possible. This saves up to 95% engineering time and can significantly reduce time-to-market.

Intuitive software – no programming knowledge required

Even during operation, the software is intuitive and can be used without programming knowledge. Thanks to the modern Web HMI, process configuration is realized via drag & drop. The easy graphical creation of evaluation and analysis elements is practically self-explanatory. During operations, the Smart Press Kit can then be conveniently monitored via a tablet. The visualization of status information and process results as well as the live display of the force-displacement curve with subsequent analysis, storage and data export options ensure maximum transparency. All current system parameters are always available at a glance: whether status report, quality statistics or error messages. They appear as plain text in the software and make error handling a doddle. Other predictive maintenance functions and maintenance support are currently in the pipeline. Thanks to all these functions, the Smart Press Kit reduces downtime and maximizes productivity.

“As pioneers in the digitalization of Linear Motion Technology, we are, with the Smart Press Kit, now also launching a special solution for less complex pressing and joining processes. The Smart Press Kit is based on proven Rexroth technology as well as innovative products and solutions throughout the entire process chain and combines our complete know-how,” says Dr. Ulf Lehmann, Head of the Linear Motion Technology at Bosch Rexroth AG.
