Identifying eccentric bearings mounted on Rollon guides now it’s easier: they have black colored pins.
In order to drive our customers and partners in the operations of set up and maintenance of our guides, it was decided to make the eccentric pins of our bearings different by giving them a black color. In this way it is going to be easier to identify them when there’s the need of ordering some spare parts.
The pins with the new color are mounted on products delivered starting from week 38 of 2016. There are no changes in terms of dimensions or performance, so the actual bearings are fully usable at all the effects. The color is given by a chemical crystallizing process with no dimensional increasing.
Anyway, for adjusting the sliders and setting the preload it is strongly recommended to keep on following the instructions given in Rollon catalogues.
For any question or for getting more information about this update, you can get in touch with your Rollon local reference.
