Bosch Rexroth has opened its Tech Center East, located in Rochester Hills, MI, which will house 120 technical personnel from the company’s hydraulics, pneumatics, electric drives and linear motion and assembly technologies group.

The facility was debuted last week as Bosch Rexroth showcased the drive, motion and control concepts as well as systems designed and developed at the center. According to the company, the facility has aided with the development of Bosch Rexroth’s hydraulic regenerative braking system and automation solutions for solar applications.

“Tech Center East will define market requirements, prototype important concepts, develop testing facilities, and coordinate product testing,” said Berend Bracht, president & CEO of Bosch Rexroth Corp. in North America. “It is modeled on our Tech Center West, where we have tailored automation solutions for the semiconductor industry, solar applications and medical technology.”
