Sustainability is a key concern. Reconditioning used products reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions by half, and preserves rare raw materials (such as copper and aluminum). Bosch Rexroth - the industrial division of the Bosch Group, specialist and leader in control and drive technology - supports manufacturers in this approach.
The company offers to buy back equipment recovered from manufacturers and refurbish it using the remanufacturing process. They are then resold second-hand with a two-year warranty.
"Rebuy" is a program proposed by Bosch Rexroth France, which aims to be a forerunner in the large-scale recovery of Rexroth and Indramat products that are no longer used, defective or obsolete. In exchange for these products, manufacturers will benefit from a credit on other brand purchases.
Bosch Rexroth processes old drive products according to its rigorous refurbishment and recycling procedures.
"Rare earths, copper and aluminum are raw materials often found in automation components. Today's economic climate is driving us to preserve, reuse and recycle them as much as possible. In this way, any reconditioned product is a product that will have several life cycles, and only part of its components will be changed, thus reducing the need to extract new raw materials".says Bosch Rexroth.
