Elesa roller tracks make moving the load easy

The Elesa ELEROLL package of rollers and ball transfer modules is designed to greatly simplify installation and use of this type of widely used conveyor system. The modular ELEROLL roller conveyors allow easy and quick joining of units to create loading and unloading areas in the construction of machines, storage and retrieval systems or packaging machines. The main components of the roller conveyors are constituted by sliding elements, which are either rollers or balls, for bi-directional or multi-directional (omni-directional) movement of heavy parts, packages or sheet materials.

Elesa’s worldwide supply chain of high-quality industrial components is typified by the ingenious design of the ELEROLL modules.

The roller elements, suitably fixed inside the RLT-AL aluminium profiles, create modular roller tracks for passive handling (both as sliding or containing surfaces), suitable for several applications in different fields: feeding and discharging benches in construction machinery, storage and picking systems, packaging machinery, etc.

RLT-U-PA roller elements are also suitable for handling heavy packages, RLT-U-TPU roller elements, with rollers in anti-scratch material, allow the handling of delicate materials such as glass and wood.

The low friction coefficient between the roller and the roller holder eliminates the need for lubrication maintenance – while the particular section of RLT-AL profile, allows the snap-in assembly of the roller elements into the profile without the need for screws or other fasteners. Therefore, the roller elements may be quickly and easily removed and replaced, without disassembling the entire roller track.

The roller elements may be divided between individual wheels, so as to create roller tracks of precisely the required length.
