Bosch Rexroth displayed a robotic system to solve Rubik’s Cube puzzles—demonstrating the prowess of its NYCe compact PC-based control. Repetitive puzzle solutions took less than 2 minutes. Software programming of the robot was provided by Korean company Sejin-iGB ( www.gear-box.com). Besides its wide range of electric, hydraulic, and pneumatic control technologies on display, other Bosch Rexroth product highlights included IndraDrive Mi, a combined servo motor and drive unit that reportedly cuts control cabinet volume up to 70% and cabling needs up to 85% for networked, multiple-motor applications; IndraMotion MTX simulator that provides full control simulation of MTX CNC systems; and Rexroth MAC-8, an open motion control for up to 32 hydraulic or electric axes running in parallel in real-time. www.boschrexroth.com Bosch Rexroth
