Hannover Messe Hall 17, as B41
The booth of Rodriguez is all about the linear technologyWhether standard component, linear-technical assembly or customer-specific linear system - the Eschweiler drive specialist always finds a suitable solution for the tasks of its customers. When developing assemblies and system solutions, the lightest possible materials are used, such as aluminum in the Linear axis RLA, The linear technology solutions are particularly low maintenance thanks to ingenious lubricant processes.
"Our focus has always been on the optimal implementation of customer requirements," says Jörg Schuld, Division Manager at Rodriguez. "Our many years of experience in the realization of solutions to such problems will benefit us." Often, the development of a customer-specific solution is easy and leads very quickly to sustainable success in applications. Such linear assemblies and linear systems are being developed as part of Rodriguez Value Added Products.
"It is interesting that in recent years linear technology has always opened up new areas of application outside the" beaten track ", emphasizes Jörg Schuld. The focus here is on developments that are influenced by the topics of energy efficiency and environmental awareness. For example, hydraulic drive systems are increasingly being replaced by electromechanical systems. In addition, customers are now dealing even more intensively with the subject of factory automation. Last but not least, interesting projects in the area of 3D printing have recently been brought to the company.
As with the new application areas, the development of the products continues: Weight and installation space are important aspects in the context of energy efficiency. The selection of suitable materials also plays a decisive role. The use of the lightest possible materials ensures high dynamics. For example, in the linear axis RLA aluminum is used as the core material. In the food industry and medical technology, the demand for solutions made of stainless steel is increasing. Last but not least, ingenious lubricant processes result in the lowest possible maintenance solutions.
