Jun. 22, 2018 – With the revised version of the online configurator for M4 load sensing valves, Bosch Rexroth aims to help manufacturers of mobile machinery in two ways: On the one hand, the tool is designed to make it easy to master the variety of the flexible valve family and provides necessary design documents. On the other hand, the M4 configurator now provides an expanded preferred program and an eShop connection, which makes the procurement process faster and easier.

According to Bosch Rexroth, their versatility and technical features in terms of precision, sensitivity and safety make the “all-rounder” control blocks M4-12 and M4-15 reliable components for a variety of mobile working machines and their functions. This includes the sensitive boom control in knuckle boom cranes, concrete machines and emergency sky lifts, as well as the use in open-circuit travel drives, drilling equipment, or forestry machines.

In order for developers and designers to keep track and quickly come to each individual required solution, Rexroth has put a new version of the M4 configurator online. The revised tool now represents a significantly expanded portfolio. A guided selection process opens up a corresponding number of variants based on the required criteria and options (e.g. mono block input, aluminum-free, type of actuation or end plate). As soon as a configuration is complete, comprehensive documentation including a schematic, dimensional drawings and 3D models becomes available. These can be immediately incorporated into the design process of the machine manufacturer. Registered users can also return at any time to previously saved projects and adapt them quickly if necessary.
