Industry 4.0 training rigs
20 May 2016
Bosch Rexroth has launched a new range of modular mechatronics training system mMS 4.0 rigs, aimed at supporting the next generation of engineers.
The Industry 4.0 compliant rigs form part of the Drive & Control Academy training offering and are a complete engineering system built with industry grade components. The rigs come with HMI, RFID and Open Core Engineering from Rexroth with PLC programming options included, providing students with a true hands-on industry process experience.
Additional enhancements that may be absent from current factory floors have been installed to help students keep one step ahead of the evolving engineering industry.
Consisting of three individual stations, modular design allows for complete flexibility adapting to individual needs appropriate for every learning path, both in industry and in academic environments.
Suitable for beginners through to advanced engineers, the modular hydraulic, pneumatic, mechatronic systems are perfectly tailored to suit the qualification stages both for education and industry. As well as being supplied with component kits, there is also corresponding exercises, eLearning, project manuals and supporting material provided for each training system.
Speaking about the launch, Richard Chamberlain, product manager service at Bosch Rexroth, said: “We firmly believe our industry grade training rigs will equip students with the ability to stay ahead of the curve. Our course material helps guide trainees through consecutive steps that build on one another, which means motivation remains high.”
