Bosch Rexroth Group: Land Rover’s Choice for Welding Controls
Headquartered in Lohr am Main, Germany, Bosch Rexroth Group is one of the world’s foremost specialists in the field of drive and control technologies. Founded in 2001 via the merger of Mannesman Rexroth AG and the Automation Technology Business Unit of Robert Bosch GmbH, Bosch Rexroth caters to the factory automation, construction, commercial vehicle, marine, and renewable energies markets. Recently, Bossard won a major contact from British firm Land Rover. Founded in 1948, Whitley-based Land Rover is a premier designer and manufacturer of four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicles, and operates under parent company Jaguar Land Rover. The agreement, worth USD$3 million, is for Bosch Rexroth to produce welding controls for Land Rover’s T5 project.
Bosch Rexroth’s latest offering in welding controls is the Rexroth PS 6000, which consists of a comprising inverter, weld timer, and I/O board housed in custom-made cabinets. The modular concept behind this system combines fully attuned components into one cost-efficient system—intelligent inverter, high-dynamic electric servo cylinder, precision pneumatic servo cylinder, and powerful medium frequency (MF) transformers. To date, Bosch Rexroth has delivered 200 automatic panels for robotic applications and 175 manual panels to Land Rover.
This collaboration is not the first between Bosch Rexroth and Land Rover. Previously, the Group worked with Land Rover to supply 165 Rexroth PS 6000 controls for spot welding the latest Range Rover L30 project. Today, Bosch Rexroth employs a 36,000-strong global workforce. The Group invests over USD$517 million into electromobility research and development—with 2,100 engineers dedicated to working on developing new technologies.
