Mechanical elements with engineered solutions
Rodriguez is one of the leading suppliers of thin-section, precision and customized bearings as well as linear technology for a wide range of industrial applications. Our portfolio also includes components and systems for the automotive industry. From single machine components through ready-to-install complete systems, our technically sophisticated, integrated and customized solutions successfully satisfy the customer demands.
Our factory in Eschweiler/Germany boasts a comprehensive machine shop. This is the basis for our flexibility and guarantees consistently high standards of quality. We pride ourselves in a high level of engineering competence, based on decades of practical experience. In-house production allows us to supply our products in all versions and types required by the market.
One of our major priorities is establishing and maintaining close business relationships with our customers which allow us to provide individual advice. To support this philosophy, our Sales & Marketing division is staffed with qualified technical experts. We are also highly committed to the further education and training of all our employees throughout the company. Their creativity, ideas and innovative energy are the springboards for
practical oriented research and product development, ensuring the high capacity and performance of our company.
In-house production is the key to our ability to respond quickly, be flexible to customer requirements and provide them with custom-made system
solutions. Rodriguez has an impressive machine park and a large in-house depth of manufacturing 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. The increasing demand for rotary
units with a smaller diameter of 15 mm and more can also be met. Rodriguez uses modern CNC turning machines for linear technology. They allow us to produce shafts with an outer diameter of up to 100 mm.
Our long-term goal is to further increase the share of in-house production. With this in mind, recent investments have focused on process optimization and capacity expansion. Production is constantly modernized with new equipment and modern tools.
Precision Bearings – Nothing moves without them
Whether it’s in vehicles or machinery – bearings are what keep things moving in virtually all automated processes. The bearing technology used here is as diversified as the range of possible applications.
In the field of precision bearings, Rodriguez can demonstrate the decade-long experience our engineers have when it comes to practical designing. Customers benefit from this when it comes to the development of new products and the application-oriented modification of individual components. At the end we always deliver solutions beyond the standard: Drive components developed according to the maxime “always the right bearing for the corresponding requirement”.
Linear technology from Rodriguez –precise guidance for every motion
Linear guides and linear actuators are used in diverse industrial applications. Linear technology is used for example in loading and unloading processes, pick & place applications or for numerically controlled processes in machines and systems.
Linear motion processes vary widely and generally require individual solutions on the basis of linear guides and linear actuators. Rodriguez offers a broad range of linear guides, profiled rail guides and linear actuators in many different sizes and types. In addition to individual custom solutions, we also develop complete linear systems with different drive variants on the basis of our linear guides.
Focussed on your requirements: Customized solutions
Customer requirements, technical feasibility as well as economic efficiency are the main focus of our work. Together with our customers, we are looking at their demands and implement this one in innovative ideas for current and future business areas. Thus new product visions and verified product concepts are created even before the real engineering starts.
Customized solutions are one of Rodriguez core competencies. We develop, manufacture and supply complete customized solutions based on our thin section bearings and linear technology products. For these applications it is important to choose carefully the individual components and ensure their precise production and correct mounting. This is very essential for the proper functionality of customized solutions which are developed by Rodriguez. Thus you are benefitting from our entire technology- and system know-how.
As a specialist for bearings we take care of every process step from the development and construction via manufacturing and mounting right up to quality inspections, field tests and setting into operations in order to provide you the best customized solution. To maintain our high standards we continuously invest in latest production technologies and in the qualification of our employees.
Customers who obtain sub-assemblies or complete customized systems from Rodriguez benefit from a relief in procurement. The administrative input for the purchasing of several small components is no longer required reducing processing costs, which allow the customer to concentrate on their core competencies. This also applies especially for small quantities. The integrated functionality does include gears, grooves with control functions, mountings, brackets as well as integrated ball races at shaft or housing.
