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.
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*.
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.
