W RLDWIDE NEWS Bosch Rexroth invests in the factory of the future Bosch Rexroth is investing heavily in the Factory of the Future: On March 18, 2019, the groundbreaking ceremony marked the starting point of its plant expansion in the western Chinese city of Xi’an. The supplier of drive and control technology has earmarked around 60 million Euro for the project. The expansion will double Bosch Rexroth’s development and production capacities in Xi’an. A total of 300 new employees are to be hired in the next few years. They will manufacture connected solutions for the Asian factory automation market in a state-ofthe-art production environment. Once the facility is completed, the Xi’an location will serve as a Bosch Rexroth model plant for Industry 4.0 technologies. www.boschrexroth.com ETV 216i reach truck wins prestigious Design Award The Jungheinrich ETV 216i reach truck has received the iF Design Award 2019. It is the world’s first reach truck in which the battery has been permanently integrated into the truck design. Jungheinrich has consistently utilized the advantages of space-saving and powerful lithium-ion battery technology for this purpose. The ETV 216i is significantly more compact than conventional reach trucks, providing greater agility and improved ergonomics, giving the operator more freedom of movement and better all-round visibility. The result is an especially user-friendly and safer warehouse. www.jungheinrich.com Industrial Transformation Asia-Pacific: Growth expected at second edition With technological change transforming all aspects of industry, manufacturers everywhere are beginning to fully appreciate the rapidly growing importance of digitization for their survival.
