The fusion of the physical world of production with the virtual world of information technology into Industry 4.0 is becoming increasingly important. The requirements placed on automation technology have been clearly defined: Decentralized intelligence and autonomous behavior, open communication standards, quick networkability and context integration in real-time.

Together with digital control technology and open communication, hydraulics meets these requirements. It also opens the physical advantages of hydraulics, such as high power density, modular design or robustness to networked solutions.

Bosch Rexroth has released the Whitepaper: “Hydraulics fit for Industry 4.0”. If you want to download the whitepaper, please click here.
