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.
