LUBRICANTS TO MAXIMISE UPTIME IN INDUSTRIAL ROBOTICS

LUBRICANTS TO MAXIMISE UPTIME IN INDUSTRIAL ROBOTICS

Castrol advanced lubricants for robotics are developed to help decrease the downtime of industrial robots and positively impact quality, costs and efficiency of your manufacturing process.

 

 

EXCEPTIONAL LUBRICATION FOR EFFECTIVE AUTOMATION

Industrial robots have transformed manufacturing companies across every industry, helping to increase quality and efficiency while decrease costs. But the threat of unplanned downtime caused by robotic failure is a challenge for factories looking to enhance levels of automation. A single minute of interruption can cost an automotive manufacturer roughly US$ 22,000*. 

EXCEPTIONAL LUBRICATION FOR EFFECTIVE AUTOMATION

Castrol has a proven track record of developing high-tech, high-quality lubricants for industrial environments. It’s why NASA chose our lubricants and greases for its US$ 820 million InSight Mars Lander mission and Curiosity Rover.

Castrol and Kuka partner to take robotic factory automation to the next level

Kuka, one of the world’s leading suppliers of intelligent automation solutions, produces a broad range of industrial robots from linear units to end effectors. Kuka combines cutting-edge software and innovative controllers to develop bespoke automated solutions for industrial manufacturers, helping to improve speed, efficiency, and productivity in a cost-effective manner.

 

 

Castrol Optigear Synthetic ALR 150 has been developed in partnership with Kuka to help to minimise friction and reduce any leakages during robotic operationsDaryl LukeCastrol’s global product manager

 

“As a result, it helps to decrease the downtime of industrial robots and positively impact the quality, cost, and efficiency of manufacturing processes, an important step as we move more towards automation.”

 
*Based on the industry research with 101 manufacturing executives in the automotive industry conducted by Nielsen Research, and commissioned by Advanced Technology Services, Inc. (ATS). While one minute of stopped production, or downtime, costs an average of $22,000, some survey respondents cite the figure to be as high as $50,000 per minute.
 
*Based on various lab and field case studies.
