Rollon Compact Rail

Compact Rail consists of roller sliders with radial bearings which slide on the internal, induction hardened and ground raceways of a C-profile made from cold-drawn roller bearing carbon steel.

Compact Rail consists of three product series:

  1. Fixed bearing rail 
  2. Compensating bearing rail
  3. Floating bearing rail

All products are available as zinc plated, with nickel plated also available as an option. There are five different sizes of guide rails and many different versions and lengths of the slide bearings. 

The most important characteristics of Rollon's Compact Rail:

  • Compact size
  • Corrosion resistant surface
  • Not sensitive to dirt due to internal tracks
  • Hardened and ground raceways
  • Custom design TR-rail, also ground on the back of the rail and one side surface
  • Self-aligning in two planes
  • Quieter than recirculating ball systems
  • High operating speeds
  • Wide temperature range
  • Easy adjustment of slider in the guide rail
  • Zinc plated surface, on request chemically nickel plated

Rollon x-railX-Rail are roller embossed guide rails for applications in which an economical price to performance ratio and high corrosion resistance are required. 

X-Rail includes two sets of products: a rail with shaped raceways (0 degrees of axial play) and a rail with flat raceways (1 degree of axial play). All products are available in stainless steel or zinc-plated steel. There are three different sizes of guide rails, and the sliders for the guide rails are available in different versions.

The most important characteristics of Rollon's X-Rail are:

  • Corrosion resistant, FDA/USDA compliant materials
  • Compensates for deviations in mounting structure parallelism
  • Not sensitive to dirt due to internal tracks
  • Wide temperature range of application
  • Easy adjustment of sliders on the guide rails

Rollon curvilineCurviline is the name of Rollon's curvilinear rail product family. This type of rail is used for all non-linear special movements. Rails with constant or variable radii may be specified according to customer requirements, resulting in a highly flexible, economical solution.

Curviline is available in two rail widths. The use of standard radii is recommended. All non-standard rail layouts and radii are possible as custom products, however extra lead time may result.

The most important characteristics:

  • Straight and curved sections in one continuos rail is possible
  • Sliders with four rollers arranged in pairs maintain the preload over the entire rail length
  • Custom production according to customer requirements
  • Also available in stainless steel
