Bosch Rexroth i4.0 Mechatronics Training System



The Industry 4.0 Mechatronics (mMS 4.0) training system is a complete Industry 4.0 system in miniature for universities and educational institutions, supporting the next generation of engineers. For mechatronics training or further education, the training system, conveys pioneering Industry 4.0 technologies in an intuitive and practical manner.

mMS 4.0 incorporates all of the functions of a complete production system. Consisting of three single stations, its modular design allows for complete flexibility adapting to individual needs appropriate for every learning path, both in academic and industry environments.

The system addresses a real-life cube assembly, from the removal out of a rack to processing with a pressing machine and through to storage in the high-bay warehouse.

Assembled from standard components, mMS 4.0 is completely interconnected and programmable via bus systems and extensively secured. Cells can be flexibly added to the system, such as with a 6 axis robot. The system can also be integrated with Bosch Collaborative Robotics and be connected with the PPM (Production Performance Manager) software.

The entire system or individual stations are shipped fully assembled, installed, and programmed. You can get started right away.
The Bosch Rexroth Drive & Control Academy supports instructors and universities by providing training courses, training systems and modern media on the topic of Industry 4.0. The academy supports customized education and training, as well as the certification of technical experts. Participants could choose to be trained in Germany, England, Mexico, India – and many other Bosch Authorized Training Centers around the world.
