Efficiency is a key concept for industrial machines used in a production processes. Workstations, cutting machines, painting machines and woodworking or marble working machines must be able to operate correctly for long periods of time, often with stressful cycles and under critical conditions - managing liquids, swarf, and shavings from processes, or contaminants and corrosive substances.
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.
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 areas of packaging and logistics, efficiency is measured in terms of productivity, reliability, performance, and safety. The capacity of a system to sustain high cycles and reduce production times translates directly into economic savings, just like the reliability of selected components ensures that maintenance costs are contained and system productivity increases.
The aerospace industry is extremely demanding, constantly requiring advanced technology, performance, materials and special solutions. When it comes to aircraft interior design, features like light weight, high load capacity, compact size, strength and easy assembly must be combined with a high degree of comfort, ergonomics and long lifespan. For external applications, aircraft components also need to be strong and able to handle heavy loads, without compromising on quality of motion over time and requiring less maintenance.
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.
The development of dedicated solutions on all sorts of vehicles destined for highly specialized uses or designed for non-conventional contexts involves a careful selection of components. Mechanical components must be able to handle the critical requirements typical of the automotive sector, and these particular components must work efficiently even in more complex applications.
