Rexroth’s North American delivery program expands
September 29, 2014 By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Sept. 29, 2014 – Bosch Rexroth’s GoTo Focused Delivery Program is celebrating its fifth year of drive and control product deliveries. To mark this milestone, Rexroth has added nearly 300 additional products to the program, shortened lead times even further, and released an all-new GoTo Products app for customers across North America.
The GoTo Program, which started in the U.S. with just over 1,000 part numbers in April 2009, now offers more than three-and-a-half times the original offering to customers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Rexroth also continues to shorten lead times within the program — 98 per cent of the products in the program ship in fewer than 10 days, the company says.
New additions to the program include AA4G series 32 and AA10VG pumps for mobile hydraulics applications, as well as an expansion of the compact directional valve portfolio. Industrial hydraulics enhancements feature the addition of A15VSO and AA4VSO pumps available from local U.S. inventories for the first time.
The latest GoTo update also boasts product additions across all drive and control technology product lines: Size 25 Roller Rail runner blocks are being included in the linear motion GoTo offering for the first time, as are new freely configurable electromechanical cylinders. Lead time improvements and increased quantity limits are the highlight of the electric drives and controls offerings, with MSK and MSM motors, as well as system cables, now all available in 10 days. In the area of assembly technologies, the latest additions expand the GoTo range of accessories for ergonomic workstations, including an all-new line of ergonomic workchairs.
The updates are reflected in all of the latest catalogues at all three country websites: www.boschrexroth-us.com/GoTo, www.boschrexroth.ca/GoTo, and www.boschrexroth.com.mx/GoTo.
In addition, the GoTo Products app has been fully updated to support customers anywhere in North America. With the just-released version 4.0 for iPad, iPhone and Android, users in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. can retrieve local pricing, find their local salesperson or distributor, add products to a cart and send an email for a quote. The app also features new capabilities for sharing app content via social media, the creation of multiple wishlists for easy re-ordering of products, and quick access to numerous how-to videos and other useful content. App users can instantly retrieve all of the updates by using the apps’ sync-on-demand feature at any time after installation.
