Robots are, understandably, playing an increasingly large role in modern life. As they become more adaptable and more intuitive, manufacturers are realising their potential to reduce costs, increase production and provide greater efficiency and competitiveness. More portable and affordable robotic arms are allowing increasing numbers of companies to enjoy the benefits of automation.


Robots provide accuracy and repeatability in processes such as painting, assembly, handling, welding, cutting, packaging and dispensing. They are used in automotive and electronic industries, mediRobotics bearingscal and pharmaceutical industries, surgical procedures, the military and space exploration. They can take the place of people working in hazardous environments removing the risk of injury or disease. They can assist workers who do monotonous or physically demanding jobs.


The bearings used in robotic applications must be high precision with good rotational accuracy and reliability. Articulated robotic arms, for example, require bearings in the rotary joints and our EZO thin-type precision bearings provide such accuracy as a result of EZO’s advanced manufacturing techniques and quality control.  


Where robots need to work in extreme or controlled environments, our relubrication facility allows us to supply robotic bearings with specialist lubricants for high temperature use, food or beverage production, clean rooms or vacuum environments.
