Sustainable manufacturing Website features green machine automation technology.

09/23/2008


Hoffman Estates, ILBosch Rexroth has launched a Website to provide information on its sustainable manufacturing technology resources and to encourage innovation among manufacturers, OEMs, machine builders, system integrators, and engineers.

Bosch Rexroth provides a site to help with sustainable manufacturing.
Technologies can help with sustainable manufacturing, says Bosch Rexroth, as it offers a site with related resources.

The site features descriptions of products and systems Bosch Rexroth has developed to encourage use of alternative energy sources, such as its hydrostatic regenerative braking systems (HRB), which can increase fuel efficiency up to 25% by using hydraulics to store vehicular brake energy and then release that energy to help the vehicle accelerate. Rexroth's electric, hydraulic, pneumatic and linear motion and assembly products are used in areas ranging from wind energy, trash-to-energy and solar power production, to energy reduction and efficiency improvement programs on the factory floor.
The site provides links to case histories describing how Rexroth technology helps machine builders and manufacturers reduce waste, improve sustainability, use renewable resources and conserve energy. “As an engineer, I am convinced that the sustainable manufacturing of the future will be designed, implemented, and produced by engineers,” said Berend Bracht, president and CEO of Bosch Rexroth in North America. “Working together, we can use machine and automation technology to conserve energy, reduce waste, eliminate pollution, and manufacture products in a sustainable way. Our new website shows many examples of how this can be done.”
The company will also use the site to announce industry initiatives to help improve the environment and drive the development of sustainable manufacturing solutions. The company recently announced its participation in the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), the world's first and North America's only voluntary, legally binding greenhouse gas emissions reduction, registry and trading program. The company is participating with CCX through Bosch Group, its parent organization.
Bracht said Bosch Rexroth has been committed to developing energy-efficient products and technologies used in the renewable and clean energy space. Rexroth's electric, hydraulic, pneumatic and linear motion and assembly products are used in areas ranging from wind energy, trash-to-energy and solar power production, to energy reduction and efficiency improvement programs on the factory floor.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
