Oct. 13, 2017 – For the fourth consecutive year in Canada, Bosch Rexroth’s GoTo Focused Delivery Program continues to grow, now offering more than 5,000 Drive & Control products for delivery. According to the company, more than 99 per cent of the products in the program ship in 10 days or fewer, with the same lead times in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
The latest round of GoTo updates features new products across many Drive & Control technology product lines, and now includes more than 5,000 products – more than four times the original offering of 1,200 part numbers. Bosch Rexroth describes the GoTo Focused Delivery Program as continually optimized and updated, with a product offering that remains “fresh and reflects the latest technologies while continuing to grow, even as older or less popular products are rotated out of the program.”
The largest representative in the GoTo program is hydraulics, with a net addition of more than 100 components. These include a variety of AZPF and AZPN gear pumps for mobile hydraulics applications and various pump types for industrial applications. Hydraulics has also added many new series of proportional valves, check valves, and sandwich valves; a range of new filters, with crossover listings for customers wishing to upgrade; and an increase in hydraulic power pack options, which increases the number of GoTo configurations from 20 possible configurations previously to more than 200 configurations today.
The electric drives and controls portfolio also experienced an expansion in the latest GoTo program update, with 140 additions. Highlights include larger offerings in IndraDrives (C/M, Cs and Mi) and associated firmware; a wider selection of EFC 3610 and 5610 variable frequency drives; new MTX micro options for CNC; and the IndraControl XM featuring Open Core Engineering. Key changes in linear motion technologies are one-day lead times for size 15-45 Rail Seal with mounting clip, and the additions of size 100-XC Electromechanical Cylinder EMC and AOK Drive Units in sizes 20, 32 and 40. In the area of assembly technologies, new cover and end cap colours have been added for the aluminum framing product line.
