Marlborough, MA - Ruland Manufacturing Co., Inc. is again proud to sponsor the 2013 FIRST® Robotics Competition by donating a variety of shaft collars, rigid couplings, and motion control couplings. For the first time Ruland will make parts available to the FIRST Choice program allowing teams to select a wider variety of products that will better suit their robot. The FIRST® Robotics Competition gives high school students six weeks to design, program, and build a complex robot. The competition kicked off on Saturday January 5th, and culminates in St. Louis, MO with the FIRST® Robotics Championship from April 24-27, 2013. Ruland believes strongly in education and is excited to help inspire a future generation of engineers.

FIRST® was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.

Ruland was established in 1937  and has focused on carefully made shaft collars and couplings for the last 40 years. All Ruland products are manufactured in our Marlborough Massachusetts USA factory under strict controls using proprietary processes. Ruland's complete product line includes shaft collars, rigid couplings and five types of zero backlash couplings: beam, bellows, disc, jaw, and oldham.
