Robotics and Automation


February 23, 2022

Fully automated assembly lines with industrial robots are highly efficient, fast and precise – as long as they are in operation. When unplanned downtimes occur, the economic damage can be immense within just a matter of minutes. Prevention is better than repair. Using high-performance lubricants during regular maintenance of industrial robots prevents unscheduled downtimes, optimizes the robotics and maximizes the uptime of the assembly line. In this white paper, you will
learn more about the right lubrication for your industrial robots.
