In the field of industrial automation, it is extremely important to choose a telescopic rail that can always ensure maximum performance, and guarantee that production systems function correctly. This prevents malfunctions and problems that slow the system down. The Rollon Group, with one of the most complete ranges of mechanical solutions available on the market, based on integrated and highly customizable products, confirms its position as the ideal technological partner for anyone working in this rapidly expanding sector.
In industrial situations, telescopic rails are often used for automated cantilever extractions of mobile parts of machinery. They are often operated in critical conditions, for example, with heavy loads, demanding cycles or in dirty environments. For this reason, these systems must be reliable and guarantee optimal sliding properties for long periods of time. The use of unsuitable products can cause problems, such as reduced efficiency of the entire system or slowed production rates. Therefore, which aspects are the most important to consider to make sure we choose the right telescopic rail?
The designer must carefully evaluate a few characteristics:
The range of Rollon products has recently been expanded with the introduction of the Telerace family: telescopic guides with ball bearings, with double ball bearings and nitrided raceways, able to easily manage variable strokes, high speeds and stressful cycles, also in vertical applications.
These rails have large rolling components (the maximum diameter of the bearings is 31.5 mm) with internal sliders fitted with raceway cleaners and lubrication systems. The nitriding treatment ensures maximum efficiency up to 2 million cycles thanks to a raceway surface hardness of 60-62 HRC. Double ball bearings allow the system to manage heavy loads, up to around 780 kg per pair for the best performing rails (TLR 43).
Lastly, Telerace rails are designed with a slight rotation of the rail elements with respect to the intermediate element, and this allows them to manage misalignments up to 2° and flatness problems up to 3 mm.
Available in several different models in carbon steel or stainless steel AISI 304, these rails can be treated with the “Rollon e-coating” for greater resistance to corrosion (up to 700 hours in saline mist).
