Think about how easy it is to install an app with a camera function on your smartphone: Whether it’s a QR code reader or a new filter, the installation takes just a few minutes.

This would normally take several man-hours. Thanks to ctrlX AUTOMATION from Bosch Rexroth, a completely new software architecture does all the engineering work for you.
