Bosch Rexroth Corporation Posted 04/17/2015
Over 200 product additions, shorter lead times, and an updated GoTo Products app covering North America highlight Spring enhancements to Rexroth’s popular fast delivery program.
Rexroth’s North American GoTo Focused Delivery Program expands again, with more products and an enhanced mobile app for all North American customers.
Charlotte, NC – Bosch Rexroth’s GoTo Focused Delivery Program, originally launched in the United States in 2009, is now in its 6th year of providing fast deliveries of Rexroth’s most popular Drive & Control products. With the 2015 Spring update, Rexroth has again shortened lead times, added more than 200 products to the program, and updated our GoTo Products app for customers across North America.
The latest GoTo update boasts product additions across all Drive & Control technology product lines, and now includes more than three-and-a-half times the original offering from 2009. Importantly, Rexroth also continues to shorten GoTo lead times; 98% of the products in the program ship in 10 days or fewer.
A key new improvement to the mobile hydraulics program is an increase in the max order quantity for axial piston products manufactured in our Fountain Inn facility from 5 to 10 units, in the GoTo lead time of 10 days. Additionally, customers may now order up to 30 units of select A10VO/31 pumps that ship within 30 business days – a new lead time available to customers needing larger quantities of GoTo products. Rexroth is also enhancing the industrial hydraulics portfolio by increasing the max order quantity for all size 6 directional control valves from 5 to 10 units within 10 days, and up to 30 units in the new 30-day lead time. Further improvements include a new series of 4WRPEH proportional valves, as well as the addition of AZPG external gear pumps to the GoTo offering.
The linear motion portfolio now offers new sizes for CKR & CKK compact modules along with ball rail scraper plates. The addition of the IndraDrive Mi motor-integrated and near-motor drive family highlights the electric drives and controls offering, as well as new versions of IndraMotion MLC and XLC. In the area of assembly technologies, the addition of VarioFlow plus conveyor components brings the latest conveyor technology to the GoTo Program, while the Manual Production Systems portfolio continues to expand with new workstation and flow rack components.
The program changes are reflected in an updated set of catalogs and on Bosch Rexroth’s North American websites. Most importantly, Rexroth’s popular GoTo Products app has been fully updated to support customers anywhere in North America. Version 4.0 for iPad, iPhone and Android includes all of the latest products, and allows users in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. to retrieve local pricing, find their local salesperson or distributor, add products to a cart and email it for a quote. Other key features: the ability to share app content directly using email, MMS, Facebook, Twitter, and more; the ability to create 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.
Central Europe, Brazil and many other countries have also introduced the benefits of streamlined access to GoTo products to their customers as well. Check your local websites for more information. For a complete listing, visit our international website.
