Extendable robotic camera arm

Reduced friction for autonomous intelligence system

The main goal in this application was to reduce friction when the robotic camera arm was extended.

iglide® plastic bushings lowered the friction, improved technical performance and extended service life.

"An essential advantage compared to traditional metal bearings is that the plastic bushings can operate without lubrication, so regular maintenance isn't needed. Plastic bushings are also cheaper to purchase and even increase the cycle rate of the machine," said a spokesperson.
