Every other year at Hannover Messe, fluid power manufacturers showcase innovative technologies that advance the industry. With this year’s theme of “Factory of the Future” smart technologies rule. Read them all here, beginning first with a new design from Bosch Rexroth. And stay tuned in the coming weeks as we take more in-depth looks at these new technologies!
The new CytroBox from Bosch Rexroth brings hydraulic power-unit technology into the 21st century. It features a variable-speed drive, axial-piston pump, integrated sensors, internal cooling and a 3D printed manifold — and it runs quiet, all in an eye-pleasing package that looks more like a household refrigerator. It also connects fluid technology with the CytroConnect IoT package as a standard feature, for high availability and lower maintenance costs.
