Better availability and lead times
Published: 9 February 2012 - Heather Ramsden
R. A. Rodriguez now offers better availability and lead times on turntable bearings. This is thanks to a second wave of investment by the manufacturer that has resulted in the installation of extra machinery including a Pittler 5-axis machining centre.
The installation enables bearings with diameters of up to 1,600mm to be manufactured to high quality German standard, in-house. It will also allow the company to meet customers’ needs for small batches – typically 10 to 20 units – as well as prototypes. Specials can also be accommodated.
Two versions of the Rodriguez turntable bearings are available, the KDL series for light applications where high accuracy is not a primary concern and the KDM series that provides a higher order of performance for greater loads. The full range of standard bearing diameters available in the Rodriguez range extends from 100mm to 3,900mm.
