Rodriguez - Precision in Motion

Press release
The experts for Precision bearings

Reali-Slim bearings and turntable bearings from Rodriguez. Visitors at Hannover Messe 2015 who are looking for precision bearings with a compact design or very robust turntable bearings will do well to stop at the Rodriguez GmbH stand. As a leading manufacturer of Reali-Slim bearings, axial-radial precision roller bearings (RTB) and customized bearings the company offers high-quality bearing technology for demanding industrial applications.

For decades Kaydon Reali-Slim® bearings from Rodriguez are among the thinnest and lightest thin-section bearings on the market – exceeded only by the even more compact Kaydon Ultra-Slim® bearings. The very slim and lightweight Ultra-Slim® thin-section bearings are ideal for applications requiring exact positioning, low weight and a space-saving design. Ultra-Slim® bearings have an extreme thin cross section of 2.5 x 3.0 millimetres and are available in boresizes from 35 to 200 millimetres for a compact, weight-saving design. Typical applications are in robotics, optical systems, medical engineering and cleanroom technology.

Ultra-Slim® bearings are ideal for lightweight and medium applications with slow or intermittent rotations. The thin-section bearing products from Rodriguez include more than 250 different types in standard and metric dimensions as well as hybrid versions with ceramic balls.

Turntable Bearings

Robust, high-performance precision turntable bearings are always the best choice for absorbing tilting moments if the application requires large bearing diameters, for example in rotary tables. Four-point contact bearings from Rodriguez are designed to reliably absorb radial and axial loads as well as tilting moments and are very economical. The bearings and connecting elements are combined in a single component and therefore reduce the costs and effort for the design of the connection construction. Rodriguez offers single- and double-row turntable bearings with outer diameters from 100 to 5.000 mm. The bore diameter of the turntable bearings from Rodriguez is at least 50 millimetres. The bearings are available with internal or external gear and without gear, optionally corrosion-resistant types are available as well as customized bearings (Value Added Products).

In addition to precision bearings Rodriguez also offers linear technology for use in the metalworking industry, medical engineering, the food and chemical industry, paper and wood processing and conveyor technology.
