Rollon linear rails, telescopic rails and linear actuators are mechanical components used to control movements with different variables and complexity. They are used in many industrial sectors. This is why each Rollon product has been designed to meet the exact requirements of the end application. Light weight, load capacity, self-alignment, corrosion resistance, speed, and precision: each industry has specific requirements carefully considered by Rollon’s R&D department in order to provide custom solutions.
Efficiency is a key concept for industrial machinery used in the production process: workstations, cutting machines, painting machines and wood or marble processing machines need to be able to operate correctly over a long period of time - often with high cycles, under critical conditions and when handling liquids, dust and chips from the process as well as pollutants and corrosive substances. The application experts at Rollon are familiar with the requirements of machine and plant construction and design every linear application for your industrial machines to the exact specifications you supply us with. For economical and functional linear technology systems Rollon has comprehensive modular systems with diverse telescopic rails, linear guide rails, linear axis, linear systems and accessories. Rollon modifies all components for individual requirements as necessary, or develops entirely new custom solutions.
To meet the specific industrial automation tasks, increasingly individualised system solutions are required. These can often be realised very economically and reliably by a combination of linear movements, for example with the help of Cartesian robots, multi-axis gantries or a seventh axis robot platform. Rollon supplies modular automation components and the required application know-how from a single source. In co-operation with system integrators and machine builders, this results in technically and economically optimised automation solutions.
In the railway industry, transport efficiency and passenger safety are paramount. Each part of a train car (railway, underground or tram) must be designed to deliver the highest level of reliability, taking into account impacting factors, such as: harsh environments, corrosive agents, on-going vibrations, and every day wear and tear.
In the packaging and logistics sectors, efficiency is measured in terms of productivity, reliability, performance and safety. The ability of an asset to support high-volume operations and reduced production time means immediate savings. The reliability of selected components also ensures the reduction of maintenance costs and increased plant productivity.
Rollon ensures efficiency in the Material flow and offers cost-effective solutions, modular automation systems and tailored implementation. The linear components are suitable for all applications in which dynamic processes are required, long travels must be covered or large loads are to be moved…. and fast! Based on the diverse automation portfolio of Rollon, system integrators build application-specific intralogistics systems with high dynamics and low deflection of the linear units even with a large span. Straightforward, fast and inexpensive. Portal and gantry systems as well as Cartesian pick-and-place systems that pick up and exactly position high forces and moments are a given for Rollon. Even in environments with abrasive dusts and continuous use, the linear systems achieve a long service life.
The aviation industry is very demanding and constantly demands the most modern technology, services, materials and special solutions. When it comes to the interior design of aircraft, features such as lightweight construction, high load capacity, reduced dimensions, strength and ease of installation must be combined with high performance, good ergonomics and a long service life. In external applications, aircraft components must be very stable and withstand high forces without the quality of movement being affected over time. In addition, the maintenance must be low.
Rollon has been working with leading manufacturers of aircraft seats for many years and also supplies components to specialist vehicle manufacturers and airport equipment and service providers. Its portfolio includes linear motion systems for interior trim, sliding compartments, pedestal (Monument) pull-outs, pull-outs generators, AC systems and batteries as well as linear technology for maintenance devices and special movements.
The furnishing industry uses simpler motion components than those offered by Rollon. However, there are some niches in this market where Rollon linear and telescopic rails, are the ideal solution to ensure the highest degree of project freedom for interior designers and architects; such as furnishings for retail stores, luxury brand boutiques, yachts, hotels, museums and theaters.
Many applications in utility vehicles would not be possible without linear technology: it enables the adjustment of seats in excavators and road rollers, facilitates the handling of stretchers and trolleys in ambulances, or gives firefighters fast access to their equipment.
For the development of customized solutions for all types of highly specialized vehicles, the disabled vehicle conversion or the use in unconventional environments, all mechanical components must be carefully selected. This applies in particular to moving parts such as telescopic rail extensions and linear rails.
Rollon's linear technology is characterized by high load capacity, accuracy and longevity. Even under harsh conditions, the compact motion systems work reliably and precisely - ensuring mobility even in confined spaces. So in construction vehicles particularly dirt-resistant linear rails for seat adjustments, sliding doors or moving control panels are used. A backlash-free run even at maximum load is guaranteed by the extremely robust telescopic extensions. They can be found, for example, in wheelchair ramps on vans, in sliding counters or pull-out drawers of catering vehicles. They are also used in semitrailer and platform extensions on trucks and commercial trailers or for hose handling on tank trucks
