Bearings in Robotics and Automation

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:

Medical

Off-Highway

Food and Beverage

Hand Tools

Stay tuned for more updates to our industry pages, we plan on adding more in-depth looks at a number of segments in 2017.
