Linear motion with a new design

Rollon continues to release linear motion products with a renewed design: the SC range has been redesigned to meet the needs of the designer in terms of simplifying the project, increasing performance and adhering to the various application requirements.

The redesign process is completed with the introduction of the new vertical models of the SC Series from Rollon. SC Series linear units are specifically designed for vertical movement and have a fixed carriage and movable profile, thanks to an omega belt drive system. They can be quickly and easily assembled with ROBOT Series axes to create multi-axis or gantry configurations without the use of additional adapter plates.

The axes of the SC Series can be used in many automated processes in different industrial sectors, such as logistics, machine tool automation, palletizing or end-of-line packaging. They are available in three different sections: 100, 130 and 160 mm.

A functional redesign

The connection plate at the end of the profile allows for quick and easy switching of accessories, reducing downtime and improving plant productivity. The modularity of the system is now further improved, thanks to the introduction of a special extension system (available as an optional) useful to reach lengths exceeding the maximum stroke.

The anodized aluminium extrusions used for the profile of the Rollon SC Series linear units have been designed and manufactured to achieve two fundamental objectives: to reduce the weights to be moved (in order to obtain better performance in terms of energy consumption) and to offer a high mechanical resistance to loads at the same time. Inside the profile itself is the routing of the power cables of the gripping device, a feature that greatly reduces the overall dimensions of the installation, simplifying it.

Rollon SC Series linear units use steel-reinforced polyurethane drive belts with AT pitch. This belt provides high load transmission characteristics, high dynamics and low noise. The belt drive also reduces maintenance requirements.
