Convertible automation solutions for the optimized & intelligent production
In an increasingly dynamic world (VUCA-World), new requirements arise for the factory of the future – faster, more flexible, more efficient. The answer are modular and adaptable manufacturing systems.
This is one of our focal points at Bosch Manufacturing Solutions: convertible, flexibly combinable and expandable automation solutions for the factory of the future.
User-optimized platforms with standardized hardware and software interfaces for various mechanical and electronic elements as well as intelligent controls form the basis.
A wide variety of process modules for a wide range of products can be integrated on this basic platform – from assembly, joining and handling processes to complex testing processes and high-precision machining as well as intelligent control processes.
In terms of their degree of automation, the modular manufacturing systems can be scaled from manual workstations with automation support to collaborative concepts for safe human-machine interaction and fully automated solutions.
One level of automation, for example, can be achieved directly by integrating robotics and intelligent image processing - our modular manufacturing system shows you how!
Another important component of the factory of the future are intelligent autonomous transport systems – the so-called "Automated Guided Vehicle" (AGV) – with the help of which the internal flow of materials and goods can be automated and manufacturing systems can be loaded and unloaded autonomously. Get to know our "ActiveLoader".
A wide range of services complements the manufacturing systems.
The focus here is on error analysis to avoid downtimes, reducing start-up times, and increasing efficiency through individual system optimization – Bosch Manufacturing Solutions is at your side as a full-service LifeCycle solution provider.
