When it comes to the retail store environment, products don’t sell themselves. In order to maximize sales, you need attractive, functional display fixtures that present your goods front-and-center to the customer. That means supporting components like drawer slides must be inconspicuous so that they don’t divert the customer’s attention from the merchandise. And because retail space is precious, drawers cannot extend too far from the display despite the need to cantilever sometimes heavy loads.
As robots become a mainstay in the manufacturing world, they are increasingly making room for cobots. Designed to work alongside humans, collaborative industrial robots (cobots) have become an attractive option for manufacturers, performing semi-automated tasks.
Rollon Corporation now manufactures linear actuators capable of providing a seventh axis of motion to anthropomorphic six-axis robotic arms with a curb weight of up to five-thousand pounds! Seventh-Axis systems — part of our Actuator Line Series — offer a host of customizable features to meet the most demanding automation needs. Seventh-Axis systems incorporate a rack-and-pinion guided shuttle to traverse our linear extrusions for any required travel distance.
Cartesian robots are a particularly attractive automation option for manufacturers with pick-and-place type processes. Their highly precise motion boosts production efficiency, making them a natural choice for plant managers looking to cut waste. These robots let users concentrate their efforts on value-added processes that help the organization meet lean manufacturing goals.
As you probably know, telescopic rails are an essential component for carrying high loads at full extension in applications such as industrial warehouses and medical imaging systems. At Rollon, we offer several robust options with hardened raceways that minimize deflection under heavy loads.
Designed for effective linear movement in a wide range of applications such as the loading and unloading systems of machine tools and long assembly lines, our compact telescopic actuator reduces lead times and minimizes stress on mechanical components.
Since its establishment, covering topics of industrial automation, electrical systems, robotics and IT solutions, IAS has been standing as a front line where automation industry leaders present and explore technology application with users, a platform to publish latest technologies and market ready solutions. After years of market success, it has become a must-attend automation event for both automation technology suppliers and industry users
MetalMadrid, Composites Madrid and Robomática are the leading events in industrial innovation that every year, and in just 2 days, presents the latest advances and news for the industry of today and tomorrow.
Rollon Corporation has announced the purchase of Hegra, a telescopic and linear guide manufacturer based in Germany. As a result Rollon’s customers worldwide will now have access to 84 additional linear guide and telescopic rail products.
Rollon recently purchased Italian linear actuator and robotics supplier Tecno Center. With a high level of system design expertise, Tecno Center’s technology gives our integrated partners a greater breadth of product and larger suite of automation tools.
Rollon’s ONE Series of belt-driven linear units, part of its new ActuatorLINE series, meet the needs of clean room and vacuum applications in demanding semiconductor, pharmaceutical, biomedical, and laboratory environments. Tested by the Fraunhofer Institute, all units are certified to ISO Class 3, according to ISO 14644-1, and designated Class 1, according to U.S. FED STD 209 E.
All of the engineers and technicians here at Rollon USA are big believers in continuous improvement. So when we had the opportunity to move to a superior manufacturing facility this year, we jumped at the chance.
