Tech Tip Tuesdays is a Rexroth social media initiative for sharing knowledge about mechanical and electrical engineering, wind energy, hydraulics and more.
In order to connect Rexroth engineers with fans and followers, the company launched Tech Tip Tuesdays via Facebook and Twitter in June 2013. Each Tuesday, a new technical tip is posted to the company’s social media networks. Bosch Rexroth is one of the leading global specialists in drive and control technology and provides custom-made solutions for driving, controlling and moving. The tips cover a variety of topics including mechanical and electrical engineering, wind energy, retrofits and maintenance, hydraulics, drives and controls and linear motion.
Using the hashtag identifier #RexrothTTT, Tech Tip Tuesdays create opportunities for fans and other industry insiders to submit their own tips, ask questions and drive conversation. Rexroth employees, distributors, customers and other industry professionals are encouraged to exchange ideas and discuss the best tips, tricks and lessons they have learned throughout their careers.
Rexroth hopes the initiative will be a resource for accurate information, answers and tools from a wide range of experts and a source of inspiration for new innovations and trends. Join the conversation at www.facebook.com/BoschRexrothUS and www.twitter.com/boschrexrothus.
