Bosch Rexroth Introduces Easy-2-Combine – A New Multi-Axis Automation System for Assembly
Easy-2-Combine is the solution for multi-axis automation tasks with individual components that can be combined in simple, time-saving assembly steps. This means that the most common applications in assembly technology can now be done with standardized interfaces. Centering elements are used for interlocking mounting and connections for sensors and the air supply are provided at several positions throughout the system, making complicated and expensive connection kits unnecessary. Rexroth has Easy-2-Combine components that can perform linear movements, pneumatically driven rotation movements, as well as gripper functions. Many components feature easily adjusted end position settings, thus drastically reducing final commissioning time. Connection kits to flexibly assemble additional components will also remain in the Rexroth program. As a result of all this, the Easy-2-Combine system is already equipped for expansion. Rexroth's goal is to integrate additional components and sizes in the system Easy-2-Combine for increased handling technology solutions. Bosch Rexroth Corporation, a merger of Bosch Automation Technology and Rexroth, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH. In the year 2003, Bosch Rexroth AG achieved sales of $4.4 billion (3.7 billion Euros) with 25,700 employees.Under the brand name of Rexroth, the company offers all relevant drive, control and motion technologies: from mechanics, hydraulics and pneumatics to electronics and associated services. Rexroth has 500,000 customers in over 80 countries and is an extensive supplier of components and systems for industrial and factory automation and mobile applications.Visit their website at www.boschrexroth.com
