Robots and automation components
RA Rodriguez will have stands both within the main Drives & Controls hall and also within the Robotic Demonstration Zone. For over 40 years Kaydon Bearings, an SKF group company, has provided the core of RA Rodriguez bearing solutions and naturally, a wide range of its ever popular Reali-Slim thin section bearings will be on display as well as several Kaydon custom bearings. Also featured will be examples from the RA Rodriguez own-brand bearings range and, in particular, turntable bearings which can meet the requirements of almost any application, technically and commercially.
New to RA Rodriguez in 2016 – and being launched at the show – is the Cone Drive range of slew drives and harmonic solutions. Complementing the turntable bearings range, the Cone Drive configurable slew drives are available in sizes ranging from 7in to 25in. Bridging the bearings and drives product ranges, the Cone Drive harmonic solutions provide the ultimate in precision gearing. Their unique wave gear designs are available in a variety of industry standard drop-in replacements and custom configurations.
Within the Robotic Demonstration Zone, RA Rodriguez will be making its first appearance as the newly announced preferred partner of Universal Robots. The association between the companies has spanned seven years and in that time RA Rodriguez has demonstrated its capacity to engineer customer specific automation solutions. Indeed, the approach has resulted in a 300% increase in its Universal Robots sales in the last year. The family of lightweight, 6-axis Universal Robots will be demonstrating how they provide the ideal basis for human and robots to work collaboratively – without the need for safety guarding – to reduce payback and increase productivity. The supporting range of Robotiq grippers will also feature.
