There is no margin for error in medical devices that treat and heal people. As a reliable partner to the medical device industry, R+W offers coupling solutions for perfect technical precision.
For example, R+W couplings are installed in the world’s first and most modern radiotherapy facility in Germany for high precision three-dimensional irradiation of tumours. This is performed by a proton/ion beam unit with a rotating guidance system. The positioning drives operate with the utmost precision, ensured in part by the backlash free and torsionally stiff connections made by R+W couplings.
