- Contributes to automation of cell preparation and other processes that require sterile or aseptic technique; world's first production actuator designed with a focus on the regenerative and cell medicine industry.
- NSK's proprietary surface treatment technology and newly developed grease realize ultra-low particle emission, decontamination resistance, and low torque.
- Reduces the burden of performance evaluation tests for particulate emissions and decontamination resistance that are conventionally conducted by equipment manufacturers
NSK Ltd. has developed a new actuator for manufacturing equipment that is ideal for the regenerative and cell medicine industry. The actuator combines ball bearings and linear motion parts (ball screws, etc.) and is the first1 production actuator in the world to offer both low particle emissions and decontamination resistant performance.
By reducing the burden of evaluation tests conventionally conducted by equipment manufacturers, this product contributes to the automation of a wide range of manufacturing applications such as where sterile and aseptic techniques are required.
The new actuator was exhibited at the 2023 International Robot Exhibition at Tokyo Big Sight.
