In-house production for more flexibility and quality
Our factory in Eschweiler/Germany boasts a comprehensive machine shop – the basis for our flexibility, and the guarantor of unwavering high standards of quality. The in-house production for precision bearings and linear technology is also used for the construction and manufacturing of complete customized solutions: Rodriguez develops and manufactures such Value Added Products (VAP) on the basis of entire technology- and system know-how as well as many years of experience Due to the in-house production and the short decision-making processes between sales, design and development Rodriguez is able to respond with much greater flexibility than their competitors. This is mainly because of the fact that all process steps can be done in-house – from the design via manufacturing and assembling.
Rodriguez has an impressive machine park and a large in-house production depth for rotary and linear technology. The following examples show the range of the machine park:
- For precision bearings it is possible to manufacture turntable bearings with outer diameters up to 1,400 mm or to meet the increasing demand for rotary units with a smaller diameter.
- For linear technology Rodriguez uses modern CNC turning machines that enable machining of shafts with an outer diameter of up to 100 mm. The machine park, including all tools and measuring instruments as well as employee expertise, is concentrated on hard turning.
Rodriguez continues to expand its production capacities in order to offer its customers even more flexibility and individuality. One example of this is a cleanroom, which is necessary for the assembling and production of semiconductor components. Of course the production processes will be improved continuously. Innovative equipment and advanced tools ensure that the production systems always conform to the state of the art. Modern hybrid clamping tools enable a deformation-free clamping of bearing races. Another high priority is the in-house quality inspection: The measuring room has recently been expanded to meet stringent requirements and to test the required tolerances. Rodriguez just invested in a new measuring machine which can analyse rolling bearings with large outer diameters of up to 1,500 mm.
