  • The upgraded EFC 5610 with STO safety by Bosch Rexroth offers up to Cat. 4/PLe, SIL3 safety levels for safety relevant appliactions now over the complete power range. Safety Torque Off (STO) is a function used to prevent unexpected motor movement while connected to power during an emergency situation. Scalable in performance and functionality features, the EFC 5610 can be integrated into a wide range of automation environments with simple commissioning and open interfaces.

    The newly enhanced EFC 5610 frequency converter (VFD) now provides STO functionality from 0.4 kW (0.5 hp) to 90 kW (125 hp). In addition to the advanced safety options, the EFC 5610 offers vector control for an optimal torque curve.

    The vector control can be easily parameterized and chosen over the standard U/f technology mode. Parameterization can be done through the operator display panel or via free downloadable IndraWorks Ds software tool by use of a PC connected via USB cable to the engineering port of the EFC.

    In heavy duty mode, the overload capacity can be maintained at up to 150 percent for 60 seconds. The high-torque EFC 5610 frequency converter also offers an optimal start torque of 200 percent at 0.5 Hz. From 5.5 kW (7.5 hp) devices can optionally be parameterized for Normal Duty mode (ND), providing higher continuous power levels at 120 percent overload.

    Using an option module, the EFC 5610 can be extended by a Multi-Ethernet interface with Sercos, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT and Modbus/TCP or fieldbus interfaces such as PROFIBUS or CANopen and can be integrated into all common automation solutions.

    With the Multi-Ethernet interface and the OpenCore interface (OCI for Drives), the EFC 5610 is prepared for modern machine concepts in the environment for Industry 4.0. With available libraries, the EFC 5610 can be controlled via most programming languages.

    The EFC 5610 furthermore offers flexible expandability with application-specific functionalities, such as Rexroth Sytronix - variable speed pump drive technology (electro/hydraulic multi-technology).

    With the improved safety features of the EFC 5610 frequency converter, Rexroth offers an economical and safety-conscious solution for a variety of applications in which valuable energy has to be used responsibly. Marked with the Rexroth 4EE systematic approach, Rexroth continues its commitment to energy efficiency without compromising on the quality.

  • Measuring system from Rexroth with interfaces to match the CNC controllers from Bosch Rexroth, Siemens and Fanuc. IMS-A: robust, precise and simple at start-up

    Bosch Rexroth, Siemens, FANUC: No matter which servo drive or controller the end user prefers, machine manufacturers can equip them all with no hassle - thanks to the measuring system IMS-A integrated into the linear guides. In addition to HIPERFACE*, SSI and DRIVE-CLiQ**, Rexroth now also provides an interface for FANUC automation systems. The absolute position measuring systems IMS-A are highly precise and resistant to metalworking fluids, all kinds of chips and electromagnetic interference fields.

    Internationally active manufacturers of machine tools, 3D printers and related systems often provide their customers with the choice between two to three CNC controllers to cover regional preferences. While doing so, they follow a common-part strategy below the drive level as much as possible in order to reduce costs and complexity. Here, with the measuring system IMS-A integrated into the linear guides, Rexroth is opening up additional opportunities. As well as interfaces for CNC controllers from Bosch Rexroth and Siemens, IMS-A now also supports FANUC automation systems. With these variants start-up only takes a few minutes. With the Plug & Play encoder system, the person performing the start-up merely has to determine the respective zero point of the machine and the position offset. An electronic nameplate transfers all other information.

    The absolute position measuring system integrated into the linear guides operates without contact and is therefore wear-free. Through its implementation in the runner block and the connected sealing concept, machine manufacturers can avoid energy-intensive air sealing systems, even in working areas with metalworking fluids, dust, chips and other contaminants. This means that the regular replacement or cleaning work that would usually be necessary for glass scales in these environments is no longer required. In a comprehensive series of tests, Rexroth has investigated the effect of a mixture of ferromagnetic laser cutting dust and grease lubricant on the scale. Almost all of the paste-like mixture was wiped away by the standard sealing lips of the runner block and the level of interference was so low in all of the tests that the specified accuracy was always met.

    The measuring system is resistant to magnetic fields like those emitting/emitted from linear motors for example. Protected against vibrations and shocks, the sensors and evaluation electronics are placed in a housing on the end face of the runner block. Design engineers thus save the space for external measuring systems. Rail guides equipped with the IMS-A fit into existing machine designs without any constructional alterations in virtually every case. The absolute position is transferred with a resolution of 25 nm for all interfaces, while the repeatability is better than +/- 0.25 µm. The integrated scale is available at an accuracy of up to +/- 3 µm/m. With the IMS-A, users can implement several runner blocks on an up to 4,500 mm long profile rail independently and without any limitations on accuracy. The wear-free IMS-A does not require a battery for buffering the position. Even after a power failure, the measuring system still reports the exact position of the axis upon being switched on again from the integrated absolute scale without a homing cycle.

  • The VarioFlow plus modular chain conveyor system allows for quick planning and assembly and offers economical, low-noise operation.

    Optimized throughout for speed and efficiency: The VarioFlow plus modular chain conveyor system offers universal and quick application, easy planning and assembly. The system also boasts extremely quiet and low-wear operation.

    Quick planning, short-term commissioning, high conveying capacity: The VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system from Bosch Rexroth is optimized for quick assembly while combining particularly low-noise and economical operation. The choice of six conveyor widths between 65 and 320 mm, seven chain types and two models in aluminum and stainless steel with FDA-compliant materials opens up a wide spectrum of applications.

    Noise reduction is attracting increasing attention to continuously improve factory work environments. VarioFlow plus is one of Bosch Rexroth’s major contribution to noise reduction, with particularly low-noise operation thanks to sliding bars with lateral fixation, low-friction materials and patented hinge bolts. At the same time, VarioFlow plus provides optimum sliding properties for reduced wear, even with chain tensile forces up to 1,250 Newtons.

    An example of VarioFlow plus’s flexible application can be found in the automotive industry: In order to improve handling and save space during transport, an innovative manufacturing cell based on VarioFlow plus is able to convey roof linings at a height of approx. three meters directly to a robotic unit at a processing station. Attaching and uncoupling the finished roof linings are the only manual procedures required in this fully automated solution. This results in increased productivity as factory personnel may use these time savings to complete other tasks. Currently, this automotive manufacturer operates four complete manufacturing lines using the same application of VarioFlow plus.

    In combination with the innovative MTpro planning software, VarioFlow plus saves considerable time during project planning. The complete conveyor system can be designed in just a few steps – all the way from “drag and drop” selection of components to order placement, including verification of workpiece carriers and complete system configuration.

    The advantages of VarioFlow plus continue once the system has been delivered. Start-up and commissioning are incredibly easy with this user-friendly modular system. Standardized components make the system exceptionally easy and fast to assemble, and ensure functionally safe operation.
