Rodriguez at EUROSATORY 2016
Thin-section bearings, turntable bearings and large-diameter slewing bearings: precision components for military applications.
Thin-section bearings, turntable bearings and large-diameter slewing bearings will be focussed by Rodriguez at the EUROSATORY exhibition, coming up on 13 – 17 June 2016 in Paris. The high-precision and extremely reliable components were designed to meet the extreme conditions and requirements of defence technology.
Compact, lightweight and resistant to high shock loads: these are the requirements that generally have to be fulfilled by modern components for the use in defence and internal security. Thin-section bearings not only meet these requirements, but also feature high stiffness and a low torque – both are especially relevant for military applications. In general, thin-section bearings have a large bore diameter and a small cross section. The free space inside can be used for air pipes, hydraulic and electric lines or sliprings. Especially relevant is the fact that despite their compact design, thin-section bearings achieve a performance comparable to that of normal roller bearings.
Turntable bearings from Rodriguez, presented at EUROSATORY as well, are ideal for the high-precision applications of defence technology. Due to a new design concept and improved manufacturing processes, the turntable bearings allow engineers to develop entirely new ideas and solutions. The high-precision components are very easy to install and feature a large bore diameter from 50 up to 3,900 mm. They were specially designed for axial, radial and combined axial and radial loads. Large-diameter slewing bearings with an outer diameter of up to 6,100 mm on the other hand are suitable for harsh environmental conditions, very high loads and applications with long life requirements. Large-diameter slewing bearings with internal or external gear are regularly available up to module 30; ground gears as well as toothed belt gears and other specialized gears are available on request. Rodriguez also offers corrosion resistant solutions and customized solutions within short delivery times.
Rodriguez will be at EUROSATORY 2016 in Hall 6, Booth F 400.
