Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions and Bosch Mondeville has announced that they are offering customised Industry 4.0 development and manufacturing solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT). A broad spectrum of highly integrated solutions were presented for the first time at electronica 2018.
Smart IoT products can be developed at Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions, and then seamlessly handed over to be industrialised and manufactured at Bosch Mondeville. This provides customers with the flexibility of either working individually with just one of the two Bosch divisions or integrating both into their product's development and production process.
Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions offers customised IoT sensor devices and development kits in addition to its existing product range. The portfolio includes joint development and manufacturing based on customer applications and use cases, engineering, consulting services, and the development and manufacturing of white-label products.
For higher volume manufacturing, Bosch Mondeville's EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) capability meets today’s production requirements in terms of volume, quality and customisation. It provides a wide range of support services to customers during the development, industrialisation and manufacturing phases of their electronic products.
"Bosch Mondeville is recognised worldwide for its expertise in electronics manufacturing, and cooperation with Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions is a natural match benefitting our customers," said Frederic Boumaza, Plant Manager at Bosch Mondeville.
"Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions now offers tailor-made smart connected sensors combined with the services of a global player in electronics manufacturing," said Dr. Marco Lammer, General Manager at Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions.
