AST has added another entry into our growing series on bearings in various industries with our latest update: robotics and automation.
With highly choreographed, programmed movement on two or more axes, bearings play a major role in the motion control aspect of this technology. The use of high-precision bearings are an integral consideration for those tasked with designing and maintaining these applications.
In the robotics and automation breakdown, we take a look at:
- Common bearing types used in the industry, particularly single-row deep groove ball bearings, thin section bearings and roller bearings
- Bearing materials
- Hazardous environments and operating conditions,
- Choosing shields and seals
- Lubrication options
The robotics page joins other industry spotlights, including:
Stay tuned for more updates to our industry pages, we plan on adding more in-depth looks at a number of segments in 2017.
