Bosch Rexroth’s newest digital offering, the Fit4Filter smartphone app, allows customers to cross reference and replace their existing hydraulic filter elements with the corresponding Rexroth filters. The app is available for both Apple® and Android™ devices and is an outstanding tool for upgrading filter elements on hydraulic power units in virtually any application—plastic injection molding machines, offshore drilling equipment, machine tools, metal stamping machines, steel making equipment, and more.
Fit4Filter includes cross references to thousands of filter elements, and a unique “sync-on-demand” feature allows users to update the app with new filter elements and other data with just a few finger taps. The new app offers support in English and German languages, with contact information for Rexroth filter support personnel in 20 countries so that customers worldwide may inquire locally about replacement filters. Connecting with the appropriate Rexroth contact person is easy with built-in e-mail links and one-touch dialing.
For U.S. users, the app also indicates whether the selected Rexroth filter is part of the company’s GoTo Focused Delivery Program, as well as a link to specific Rexroth filter elements available on Amazon.com.
“OEMs and equipment owners are relying on mobile devices to perform their jobs more than ever before, including identifying and locating replacement parts right from the job site and the factory floor,” said Kerry DeWitt, Product Manager Filtration Systems Sales. “Bosch Rexroth is providing tools and support to meet those needs and fit the way they work.”
Fit4Filter is the latest mobile application from Bosch Rexroth to help project managers, engineers and other personnel on-the-go identify and gather specification information for Rexroth products. iPad® and iPhone® Apps for the GoTo program were released in 2012.
Fit4Filter is available now in the Apple App Store and the Google Play™ Store.
