Bosch-Rexroth opens new Website

Offers access to production information and literature


Bosch Rexroth's Electric Drives and Controls technology group launched a new Website to give customers, distributor partners, systems integrators and OEMs fast, easy access to the latest product information, technology updates, applications support, free downloads and technical literature.
An in-depth resource for Rexroth electric drive and control technology, the new site helps first-time visitors discover the full depth and breadth of Rexroth's offering, and helps returning customers quickly find what they need. The site also showcases Rexroth's Control City initiative, which highlights Bosch Rexroth's unique advantages in CNC, PLC and Motion Control technologies for manufacturing automation.
The new Website reorganizes and streamlines the group's Web presence for the North American marketplace, making it easier for visitors to access information on the new product releases, download documentation files and other useful software tools, training schedules, and learn specifics about new customer case histories. It is regularly updated with new multi-media product announcements, instructional videos, white papers on topics such as energy conservation, robotics, distributed intelligence and SERCOS III Ethernet developments, and industry-specific information on new drive and control solutions for businesses in industries such as food and packaging, printing, and automotive manufacturing.
The site also makes it easy to take advantage of the group's GoTo Focused Delivery program, which is designed to provide fast delivery of in-demand PLC, I/O and HMI products for machine builders.
New sections of the Website include a new, easy-to-access Product Directory, and 10 new Product Category pages. These pages follow industry-standard product category breakdowns, such as Drive Systems, I/O components, CNCs, PLCs and HMIs, so both new visitors and regular site users can find information about specific types of products.
Each Product Category page includes a Featured Product, highlighting information on the product releases and system upgrades the group is promoting. The pages also include product tables with easy-to-read summaries of product capabilities and links to detailed product pages, along with links to relevant Case Histories, Technical Papers and product-specific catalogs for IndraMotion, IndraControl, IndraDrive and IndraLogic product platforms.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
