Meeting Market Demands

Meeting Market Demands

The linear motion and assembly technologies sector will continue to be more application-orientated and market-driven, comments Kevin Gingerich, Director of Marketing Services of Bosch Rexroth Corp. (

To meet customer's preference, Gingerich notes, Bosch Rexroth is promoting its inch-based aluminum framing system at the National Manufacturing Week.

Design characteristics of the new system are identical with those of the metric profiles, according to the company. The new profiles come with the well-known Rexroth edge, which allows flush mounting of profile cover strips to create a smooth and finished surface.

In addition, Bosch Rexroth's parametric 3D design software FMSsoft version 6.41 and online framing shop now also feature inch-based profiles.

The company also sees increasing development in work station components, Gingerich adds.

METRIC ALTERNATIVE: To meet customer's preference, Bosch Rexroth is promoting its inch-based aluminum framing system that features the same design characteristics as those of the metric profiles.
