Melior Motion's planetary gearboxes are used in industrial robots with medium to high payload capacities. Schaeffler Group, an automotive and industrial supplier, signed an agreement to acquire all shares of Melior Motion for an undisclosed amount. With the acquisition of Melior Motion, Schaeffler adds more powerful gearboxes for higher payloads to its portfolio. The acquisition strengthens Schaeffler's robotics portfolio.
