Bangkok – Bosch Rexroth has officially opened a new ‘Sales and Service center' at the Amata City Industrial Estate in Rayong to provide the growing ranks of advanced manufacturers on the Eastern Seaboard and elsewhere in Thailand with more advanced and new products, components, solutions, services and web-enabled technologies.

Industry 4.0 manufacturing underscores the imperative of any entity’s having the necessary sensors, software and solutions that are seamlessly connected with their IT systems. Bosch’s smart technology can reduce manufacturing costs by enabling real-time condition monitoring, flexible evaluation and analysis options and targeted and timely notification to relevant experts. Sensors record machine data providing necessary visualization to tablets, smartphones, on-site and in the cloud, making real-time maintenance data accessible anywhere and at any time.

The center also provides customers with comprehensive project and line building facilities to deliver, install and maintain as needed a wide range of customized turnkey solutions.

“Our investment in this ‘Sales and Service center’ is part of our ongoing commitment to further invest and align our Industrial 4.0 strategies and proven experience, as both internal users and providers with the digital economy focused priorities of the Thai government,” said Joseph Hong, managing director of Bosch in Thailand. “We help industries progress by bundling global application experience and providing innovative components as well as tailored system solutions and services. We will continue to offer manufacturers in Thailand advanced connected solutions and services that are proven to increase output, productivity and reduce costs,” said Joseph Hong.

Some of the Smart Devices offered for the first time include Nexo: Cordless nut runner, APAS Assist: A collaborative robot with sensor skin, XDK: Wireless device including 8 sensors, IoT-Gateway for PLC, Active Cockpit and many more.

Bosch Rexroth’s diverse customer base in Thailand including automotive, steel, food and packaging, agriculture, material handling and plastic forming manufacturers who can leverage their receiving the multiple advantages of connected industry and networked production. These and increasingly more manufacturers are moving beyond basic recognition and awareness to concrete implementation of greater automation and data exchange in their work. By better connecting the physical world of items like products, machines and devices with the digital world, more companies are able to quantify transparent efficiencies at every step of their complete supply chains from supplier and materials integration to ‘end-of-chain’ shipping.

For these and other manufacturers, the tangible, efficiency-driven benefits of early adoption of ‘smart manufacturing‘ are measurably higher in output and productivity, lower aggregate costs, downtime and repair schedules, reduced logistics and set-up times, preventive maintenance and improved, targeted work schedules. Collectively, cost and productivity pressures will continue to motivate manufacturers just as will their strategies to increase quality and delivery.

“Leading manufacturers in Thailand are no different than any others in increasingly responding to and adopting ‘smart’, web-enabled technologies and solutions to more efficiently connect workers, machines and materials in diverse aspects of industrial production,” stated Mr. Lars Langner, general manager at Bosch Rexroth in Thailand. “We are encouraged by Thailand’s concerted efforts in evolving from its earlier stages of low cost contract manufacturing to a more widely recognized production partner in today’s globally connected industrial world. We support Thailand 4.0 by offering consultancy to local manufacturers to identify the right entrance to the connected world. Our solutions are modular and scalable from retrofitting a small pilot area up to building up an international production network. We can easily extend our proven solutions to the customer growth needs and requirements to keep the investments and risks under control and to increase in parallel the global competitiveness”, added Mr. Langner.
