ROBOTICS – AUTOMATED PRODUCTION SYSTEMS
The ability of industrial countries to compete as production locations strongly depends on the automation opportunities available. The best combination of flexibility and productivity is offered with robot-based, flexible production systems. In modern robots, high-precision servo motors are used for precise positioning and dynamic processing. Torsionally stiff metal bellows couplings are used for the high-precision transfer of torque.
R+W is the leading manufacturer of metal bellows couplings and supplies special robot attachment flanges for coupling connections with robots. Compact R+W safety couplings are used for highly dynamic systems to protect drivelines and machines against damage. Combined with a metal bellows, the coupling provides precise positioning, compensation for shaft misalignment in the driveline, and protection of sensitive components, allowing fully automated production to resume rapidly in the wake of a malfunction. R+W continues to serve as an experienced development partner in this industry and will ensure that motion is transferred with precision and safety.
