Overview of use cases from agriculture and construction to maritime applications and more.

Mining

Mining

A robust, compact design and reliability are crucial for operating mining machinery in an economical manner. With the modular common-rail system, Bosch puts nearly two decades of expertise to good use. The components are also suitable for biofuels and hybrid applications.

Forklifts

Forklifts

The multicamera system for industrial trucks and off-road vehicles ensures increased safety and comfort. Four combined near-range cameras generate a 360° view around the vehicle, enabling precise maneuvers in the smallest spaces – for safe, convenient material transport.

Agriculture

Agriculture

During harvest time, tractors and combine harvesters are in use 24/7. To ensure high availability of the machines, Bosch offers life cycle powertrain services, modular common-rail systems, and surround sensing for maximum safety.

Mobile electricity generation

Mobile electricity generation

The modular, efficient, and robust common-rail system is optimally suited for use in emergency generators and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). What is more, the gas admission valve can already be operated today with natural gas, synthetic natural gas, and hydrogen.

Municipal vehicles and mobile machinery

Municipal vehicles and mobile machinery

Electromobility is in the fast lane, and not only in street traffic. Bosch proves that customized electric motor and hybrid solutions can also be used successfully in off-highway applications – thanks to a compact design, simple integration, and tried-and-tested volume components.

Construction

Construction

Construction vehicles such as excavators and loaders are subjected to harsh conditions. Bosch develops efficient but powerful common-rail systems and exhaust-gas treatment for these vehicles – for reduced consumption and CO2 emissions. Data-based services also increase efficiency and profitability.

Maritime applications

Maritime applications

In addition to purely diesel engines, the use of dual-fuel motors in maritime applications is an important alternative technology. The combination of a common-rail system and a gas admission valve offers a reliable solution that can be conveniently retrofitted.

Rail traffic

Rail traffic

Robust, electronically controlled injection systems from Bosch contribute to the reduction of emissions and provide high power output while saving fuel. To keep the system maintenance-friendly and maintain a circular economy, Bosch offers smart remanufacturing solutions.

White paper: How Bosch is improving accident prevention and working conditions of industrial trucks

Whitepaper

Forklifts and other industrial trucks present a high risk of accidents. The multicamera system from Bosch for forklifts mitigates particularly accident-prone situations by improving the view around the entire vehicle and actively warning against impending collisions. Thanks to this, people and other objects in the forklift’s surroundings are better protected and the driver’s stress level is reduced.
