RÖHM exhibited several of the company’s latest product developments at EMO 2017 in Hanover, Germany, in September. Innovations that drew the greatest interest from booth visitors included the Lubritool lubrication system, an intelligent clamping system, a drone gripper and several industry-specific solutions.
The Lubritool system is the most intelligent lubricating tool on the market and enables automatic lubrication of tool clamping systems in machine tools within seconds instead of minutes. It reduces costly and time-consuming maintenance work associated with the manual lubrication process and prevents machine downtime. At EMO, the Lubritool received the MM Award for innovation presented by the trade journal MaschinenMarkt.
RÖHM also showcased an intelligent clamping system that opens new possibilities in workpiece clamping by supporting manufacturers in Industry 4.0 initiatives. The system registers clamping force during rotation and during the course of machining, logging status data and prompting users to undertake proactive maintenance when necessary.
To meet the needs of the growing drone market, RÖHM debuted a gripper that makes it possible for drones to grip, move and release objects automatically. Additionally, visitors to the company’s booth experienced several industrial solutions for railways and the oil and gas industries, as well as an all-around package for the machining of artificial hip and hip socket implants — a market that is steadily growing as life expectancies increase.
