ROBOTICS - ROBOT-BASED CONSTRUCTION SYSTEMS
The ability of industrial countries to compete as production locations strongly depends on the automation options available. The best possible fusion of flexibility and productivity is offered by robot-based, flexible production systems. In the case of modern robots, high-precision servo motors are used for precise positioning and dynamic processing. Torsion-resistant metal bellows couplings are used for the high-precision transfer of dynamics.
R+W is the leading manufacturer of metal bellows couplings and supplies special robot attachment flanges to use for coupling with robots. Compact safety couplings by R+W are used for such highly dynamic systems to protect these drivetrains and machines against damage. Combined with a metal bellows, the coupling provides precise positioning, compensation for shaft misalignments in the drive train and protection of sensitive servo motors. The development of fully automated production continues. R+W continue to serve as an experienced development partner in this trend and will ensure that motion is transferred to where it is needed.
