Konecranes RENTALL Programme Boosts Bosch Rexroth Productivity

Global engineering, technology and Industry 4.0 leader Bosch Rexroth has installed a new Konecranes CXT crane to enhance the safety and efficiency of its hydraulics workshop at its Singapore facility.

The new crane – which can lift up to 5 tonnes – was installed under Konecranes’ RENTALL programme, which is currently available in Singapore and Australia and allows companies to utilise premium cranes without the large upfront cost. Additionally, all maintenance – including Konecranes’ TRUCONNECT® remote monitoring – is included within a fixed monthly fee.

“Konecranes’ RENTALL programme allowed us to install the crane we needed –with minimal upfront cost – from a brand known for its quality, and we could eliminate asset depreciation too. It worked very well for our business,” said Mr Peter Peh, head of department, Bosch Rexroth Central Functions in Singapore.  “Konecranes is a trusted brand, with a reputation for safety, reliability and competitiveness, so to be able to use their latest technologies and have all maintenance included in the agreement were major advantages for us.  Having this programme in place removes the upfront financial burden associated with buying a new crane outright.”

The installation of the new Konecranes CXT crane was completed earlier this year and they will be used to  lift and position large hydraulic components such as drives, motors and pumps in Bosch Rexroth’s hydraulics service workshop.

Bosch Rexroth have also  recently collaborated with several Singaporean government agencies to develop a regional training centre, which will be the first in Singapore to offer a standardised training programme on Industry 4.0. Bosch Rexroth will collaborate with companies to test advanced manufacturing concepts to support the implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions.  The Konecranes’ RENTALL programme “frees up company funds to invest in innovations like the training centre,” said Mr Peh.
