How Bosch Rexroth ensures highest product quality with i-flow


Bosch Rexroth - global market leader in drive and control technologies.

"i-flow's data hub allows anyone to work with factory data while ensuring control over access to critical resources."

Christian Kircher, Director Engineering Excellence


Bosch Rexroth faced a challenge common in the industry: Manual monitoring and documentation of distributed product tests on numerous test benches lead to errors, untraceable actions, and costly downtime. Accurately tracking and analyzing data became increasingly challenging, leaving opportunities for product improvements and efficiency gains untapped.


Recognizing the need for a foundational solution, Bosch Rexroth has successfully tested i-flow’s advanced data hub to integrate its test facilities and drive quality improvements through analytics. i-flow was used as a data hub for connecting, harmonizing and integrating the test benches into Outsystems for data visualization. With i-flow’s flexible setup options, Bosch Rexroth was able to easily adapt to changing test stand environments and product variations, harmonize the data, and prepare it for analysis.

Before & After



Increase efficiency, quality, and data-driven decision making. With i-flow’s data hub, Bosch Rexroth reduces downtime during tests and thus increases quality and efficiency. In addition, the solution provides new insights into product performance, allowing data-based decisions to be made for product improvements.

  • Increased efficiency: Reduced downtime during tests.
  • Quality improvement: Improved product quality through i-flow.
  • Data-driven decisions: Informed product improvements through new data insights.
  • Process automation: Automation and integration of various systems.
  • Error prevention: Lower error rate through precise data analysis.


We are proud to have achieved such good results at Bosch Rexroth. The collaboration shows how much potential there is in the various areas of manufacturing when data is managed in the right way and transformed into added value with use cases.
