Bosch Rexroth presents complete factory automation technology at The Assembly Show South 2023

Moving technology demos and informative exhibits highlight the broad range of automation technologies for assembly applications at The Assembly Show South 2023 in Nashville, TN.


Nashville, TN- Experience Bosch Rexroth’s complete automation capabilities in person at the inaugural Assembly Show South. In booth 503, Bosch Rexroth will showcase automation technology from its broad portfolio that work harmoniously in assembly applications at The Assembly Show South 2023 on April 4-6 in Nashville, TN.

Located in booth 503, The Assembly Show South attendees will have the opportunity to see how Bosch Rexroth brings together a harmonized combination of advanced hardware, software and engineering to create complete factory automation solutions that are smart, sophisticated and simpler than past solutions.

The booth will include interactive exhibits and working systems demos. Featured will be the recently-launched Smart Flex Effector – a sensor based compensation module with independent kinematics – as well as a state-of-the-art 3-axis cartesian robot that handles material with precision and minimal additional resources.

Booth visitors will be able to consult with Bosch Rexroth’s factory automation experts to get strategic approaches and practical advice about how the company’s technology can help them build smarter, more productive manufacturing solutions — and deliver those solutions with maximum speed and minimal complexity. Key booth demos and highlights include:
Smart Flex Effector: The Smart Flex Effector is a sensor-based compensation module with independent kinematics in six degrees of freedom that is the first of its kind. It increases precision in handling devices and opens up new areas of application for robots and Cartesian systems.

Used in complex handling applications, joining operations with micron-level tolerances, robotic teaching, performing in-process measuring, and providing movement flexibility that was until now unobtainable, the Smart Flex Effector solves a wide array of challenges that have troubled integrators for years.

Flexible Transport System: Watch the Flexible Transport System, powered by ctrlX CORE, enable transport and positioning for various steps in demanding assembly applications like battery manufacturing. The Flexible Transport System demonstrates a complete factory automation solution, featuring products across Bosch Rexroth’s automation portfolio, including our TS 2 transfer system conveyors, ML3 synchronous linear motors with an iron core, and the IndraControl YM.

M1000R Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR): This groundbreaking factory floor logistics robot can autonomously move without human intervention and uses a Laser SLAM-based technology to develop a “map“ of paths/traffic lanes to deliver goods. Our ROKIT Locator software allows the robot to continue to change the map and improve over time as the situation within the facility changes. The MP1000R autonomous mobile robot will simulate the transport of assembled materials at the end of line from a workstation to a custom pallet rack, both assembled with various components from Bosch Rexroth’s aluminum framing portfolio.

ctrlX AUTOMATION: Our collection of kiosks illustrate the modularity and scalability of ctrlX AUTOMATION while presenting an overview of ctrlX DRIVE and ctrlX CORE hardware capabilities. On display is a three-axis ctrlX DRIVE linked to a ctrlX CORE control system running in real-time. Other components, such as ctrlX IO, ctrlX HMI and the MS2N synchronous motor, are also included.

Additionally, the exhibit demonstrates ctrlX IOT – which it is a cutting-edge toolbox with integrated security, communication, and data monitoring-analytics apps to meet all Industry 4.0 requirements. ctrlX IOT apps offer optimal flexibility for connecting different devices together across the manufacturing shopfloor (i.e. Device Bridge). The option of fully integrating IoT solutions into the platform enables users unlimited possibilities.

Smart Function Kit for Handling: The kiosk includes a display that highlights features & benefits of Smart Function Kit for Handling, combined with a working Cartesian multi-axis system whose configuration output can be created by booth visitors using adjacent Bosch Rexroth eTools software demonstration. The exhibit will present how predefined multi-axis combinations can be easily sized, configured and ordered as one part number. In addition, the Smart Function Kit for Handling software app running on ctrlX allows fast commissioning through auto parameterization of the servo drive.
