Machine tools

The machine tool industry supplies production technology for metalworking applications in all sectors and makes a crucial contribution to innovation and productivity enhancement in other parts of the economy. Machine tools shape metals or other rigid materials by cutting, boring, turning, grinding, or drilling. Thanks to its innovative production technology, RKB offers rolling bearings with high running accuracy, precision, and stiffness to meet the requirements of the most demanding machine tool applications.
