Bosch Rexroth Humboldt hydraulic valve production line - "visible" industry 4.0

in Bosch Rexroth, industry 4.0 is no longer just a concept. Bosch Rexroth is a leading practitioner of industry 4.0, as evidenced by its hydraulic valve production line in Humboldt, Germany.

in Bosch Rexroth, industry 4.0 is no longer just a concept. Bosch Rexroth is a leading practitioner of industry 4.0, as evidenced by its hydraulic valve production line in Humboldt, Germany. Relying on its rich experience in value stream design and optimization, Bosch Rexroth has made industrial 4.0 transformation of the original production line. The transformed production line can produce 2000 different products of six product families with zero switching, and realize small batch customized production or even single product production, reducing inventory by 30% while improving production efficiency by 10%. This production line was awarded the "industry 4.0 Award" by a well-known German industry magazine for realizing the best interconnection between people, machines, objects and it systems

Bosch Rexroth Humboldt hydraulic valve industry 4.0 production line in Germany

no need to switch tooling

at the beginning of the design of Humboldt factory reconstruction project, the logistics and production department worked closely with the production plan and the IT department directly under the headquarters to study the manufacturing process and value flow, and jointly and constructively put the modern innovation concept into practice. The production line of Humboldt factory perfectly combines production and logistics, and can produce many kinds of products without changing the tooling of technology and logistics. The switching time has changed from 40 seconds to zero switching, which greatly improves the production efficiency and brings huge benefits

personalized interconnection workstation

the interconnection of people, machines and products is a core tool to improve flexibility, accelerate processes and master product diversity. Through the information preparation of the front and back processes, Humboldt production line can realize intuitive operation guidance, so that people are always at the core of the value-added process. The designer has set up a series of functions on this production line to make the work of employees more relaxed and comfortable: the assembly station can be adjusted personalized, the required information can be displayed on the screen with appropriate font size and mother tongue, and the corresponding depth information can be displayed for the specific assembly process; Employees can wear Bluetooth, and important information can be automatically transmitted to the assembly station through Bluetooth. During the work of mold 2 out 2, the workpiece pallet of each product is equipped with an RFID RFID chip with its identification code, which can control the operation of the pallet on the production line, and can timely inquire about the assembly work and materials required on each station

decentralized production plan with people as commanders

compared with the original production line, the industrial 4.0 production line of Humboldt factory has a completely different production mode. This production line is no longer controlled by the central SAP system. Instead, the machine is controlled by itself in the workshop through the workshop software solution (opcon suite). This decentralized production plan can timely report its availability, whether it needs maintenance or failure and other information. In addition, the production line of Humboldt factory is also equipped with an intelligent dynamic production management system (activecockpit). This production information and control system uses a flexible and extensible app to work, which can visualize and effectively communicate all the data required in the production process of industry 4.0 in real time, and quickly and effectively solve the problems encountered in the production process. Of course, the final decision-making power is still in the hands of people, who can obtain supporting documents including all timely available information, and make the right decision on this basis

combine the production alliance of suppliers and customers

the construction of Humboldt factory industry 4.0 production line aims to improve the competitiveness of the production base, strive to better respond to market changes, make products operate faster in the market, and cover higher product diversity with lower costs. The implementation process of the project always abides by the basic principles of Bosch Production System and establishes the most advanced industrial 4.0 solution that represents the future development. This industrial 4.0 production line will continue to evolve in the future. The production line is equipped with various complete functions, which is ready for the next development step: This is to integrate suppliers and customers into the process, and transfer the intelligence of products to customers, so as to provide value-added and service benefits for customers. In short, it is to develop new business models

an imaginable example is that the final product can notify the customer when after-sales service is required or when it must be replaced. At the same time, an order can be launched at the factory and supplier. A more ambitious goal of Bosch Rexroth is to implement industry 4.0 standards in factories around the world through a decentralized organizational structure. Bosch Rexroth envisions providing all information and data for global factories through a cloud computing platform, which is controlled by leading factories. This system will be implemented in the value stream of Bosch Rexroth factory in the future

greater transparency and higher security

in a multi variety production line such as Humboldt factory, there are also a variety of parts, which puts forward higher requirements for the production line: all parts with needle coke production base must appear in the right position at the right time point in the right quantity. In addition, the production line must also be well integrated into the factory's logistics process and other production lines. Bosch Rexroth's long-term logistics goal is to integrate suppliers and customers, and the boundaries between enterprises will be gradually broken, and the form of joint work will be more adopted for more information exchange

due to the high digitization of production data, the industrial 4.0 production line of Humboldt factory has higher safety, and can achieve the early warning management of process errors and quality deviations. A variety of fool proof designs are added to the production line to avoid operator errors, reduce the defective rate and liberate the labor force. At the same time, the failure time of the production line can also be shortened as much as possible, because the system can get the signal prompt sent by the components as soon as possible, and the preparation of spare parts has been started before the maintenance work is required

Bosch Rexroth adopts a dual strategy in the field of industry 4.0. It is not only a leading practitioner of industry 4.0, but also an excellent supplier of industry 4.0. Bosch Rexroth can rely on the advanced experience of industry 4.0, including Humboldt factory, integrate the rich resources of Bosch Group in industry 4.0, provide customized solutions from project consulting to software and hardware, and effectively help manufacturers improve their competitiveness and take the lead in the future market competition

Bosch Rexroth is committed to providing safe, accurate, efficient and cost-effective transmission and control technology for all kinds of machinery and system equipment.
