A new assembly line at Bosch Rexroth has been judged the best implementation of Industry 4.0 currently in production.
Over 200 different hydraulic valves are assembled into a single value stream on the assembly line at Bosch Rexroth’s plant in Homburg/Saar.
Using an RFID Chip on the work piece, the nine intelligent stations on the line recognise how the finished product is to be manufactured and which operational stages are required. Displays show personnel the corresponding working instructions for the version that is to be processed.
Award winning production line
Bosch Rexroth has been recognised for its implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) by receiving an Industry 4.0 award from Produktion in collaboration with ROI Management Consulting.
