Vikash Poddar, Country Manager India, Rollon India Pvt Ltd
Founded in 1975, Rollon is a global provider of solutions for applications of linear motion. Rollon designs, produces and markets a complete range for linear motion which reaches every customer, composed by: linear guides, telescopic guides, linear actuators and systems for automation. Rollon solutions find applications in various industrial sectors, like industrial machines, robotics, packaging, logistics or railway, and they attentively accompany the lives of millions of people throughout the world. Rollon solutions are created using standard products which can be customized to meet the specific needs of each application, making them unique for each customer. Since 2010 Rollon Group has strengthened its world coverage with new branches in China, India and Japan, and offices in Russia, Brazil and United Kingdom, which join the Italian headquarters and the branches in Germany, France and the United States. With over 180 importers and main distributors, and an extensive network of local support, Rollon is today an international group that ensures local presence. The headquarters and plant in Vimercate covers a surface of 15.500 square meters and are equipped for the internal production of the different solutions designed. In 2018 Rollon has opened a new production facility of 5.500 sq.m. in Arcore, dedicated to the Actuator and Actuator System product lines. In addition to the central facilities, other manufacturing sites in various countries deal with cutting, assembly and finishing in order to comply with local requests with short lead times.
As a part of Rollon’s global strategy strongly focused on emerging countries, Rollon India Pvt. Ltd. was established on 1st of April 2014 as 100% subsidiary of Rollon S.p.a. Head office at Bangalore. Having complete logistics facility to stock and sale in Indian currency. Today a team of 15 people are working in the departments of Sales / Logistics / accounts and admin for Rollon India. Channel partners across the country to guarantee thorough services for the entire territory of India and precise, prompt assistance for each client. The main segments are – Industries such as Industrial machines, Railways, transportation, Defense, Special vehicles ,medical equipment and Industrial automation.
Customers can count on a high-quality product that is both trustworthy and enduring. One of the most appreciated characteristic is the self-aligning capacity offered by our rails, in fact this is clearly demonstrated by the reduced costs associated with surface preparation and installation. Rollon success is determinate by at least other two factors: firstly, our capability to develop applications that are ever increasingly specific and diversified based on the reference market, right up to making customized products, in some cases even co-designed with customer, and secondly our worldwide network of assistance centres. Every manufacturer or exporter of Rollon products may make use of the specialized assistance service provided by our team of engineers. They can also find our products in their own countries, avoiding extended waiting times and benefiting from the technical assistance whenever required, for a truly all-round technical support service as it happens in India.
The Rollon’s commercial approach on international markets are based on innovation and competitiveness so the constant involvement of the R&D department is remarkable in looking for solutions dedicated to the specific application of its customers in the manifold industrial sector and in all the major countries in the world.
Although our sales with customized products hits 35%, we keep improving our products in order to develop new to satisfy the requests and to offer a fulfilling system solution, not just products.
There is a worldwide growth of linear motion market. The main engines are the automation of industrial processes, robotic movements and the global industrialization. We are keeping finding new applications and challenges to evolve and to produce new options.
The use of Rollon linear rails affords many solutions for multiple linear motion applications for industrial machines. The lateral sliding of protective devices, the movement of control panels or the movement of tools in machining centre are a few examples of linear rails. The potential of Rollon products is to avoid misalignment, most of all on the rails. Many of our products are built on a fundamental value that is the spirit of Rollon’s attitude: ‘C’ profile rails housing different types of sliders operated by rolling elements such as ball bearings.
The rail-slider has a very compact configuration and enhanced uses of increasing spaces available: this manufacturing principle is essential to guarantee the ability of Rollon’s components to offer more benefits than other solutions available in the market. Moreover, internal circuit guarantee appropriate and high quality protection from possible shocks and dirt. To intensify rails’ weight capacity and duration the raceways of almost the entirely Rollon linear and telescopic rail are subjected to an induction hardening process. Furthermore, to expand rail’s sliding abilities some products undergo a grinding process.
We are very optimistic regarding the opportunities for machine tool industry in India and consequently for the solutions proposed by Rollon, especially for our strong industrial markets like railway and automation projects. The linear rails, telescopic rails and actuators made by Rollon ensure proper function and improved performance of machine tools. What industrial machines should assure is adequate efficiency in the production process: especially machining centres, cutting machines, painting machines, and machines for processing wood or marble must be capable to provide a proper implementation on an extended period, often with challenging cycles and critical conditions (presence of liquids, process residue, contaminants or corrosive substances). Procedure complications or machine interruptions create a lack of efficiency and additional costs. Every element must supply the proper functioning of the machine, guarantee an extreme accuracy and simplicity during the assembly and in replacement phases, keeping the maintenance down.
Our production range has a three main lines: the linear line that contains linear caged ball bearings and recirculating ball bearings rails, with different profiles and kind of sliders. The telescopic line with full and partial extraction telescopic guides, accessible in several rail profiles and characteristics like load capacity, inflexibility and proper functioning. The actuator line with linear components available in many extremely load capable and accurate typed of belt and ball screw driven models and arrangements. At this time the Indian market is particularly developing in the automation, logistics, defense and medical sectors: this is why the Telescopic Rails, the Seventh Axis system, the Actuator Line (Uniline System and Smart System) are widely used.
