In virtually every metal machining sector and application, accuracy requirements are increasing constantly. This also increases the degree of accuracy required of linear motion technology and measuring systems. To meet this challenge, Bosch Rexroth has been using its maintenance-free IMS measuring system in all new and upgraded machine tools at its plant in Schweinfurt for more than two years. In terms of maintenance costs and machine uptime, IMS has saved tens of thousands of euros in costs during the first two years compared to the glass scales that were previously in use. Machine manufacturers benefit from IMS, too. With its compact design and easy integration, IMS not only decreases system and assembly costs for machine OEMs; it also allows them to offer enhanced machine performance to their customers.
