Line It Up: Exploring the Curviline and Speedy Rail Products and Applications

“Curved rails are very unique in an industry where straightness is usually important.”

Linear products support almost every industry in the world. They work to move items from one place to the next for so many applications. On Line It Up, host Tyler Kern chatted with Forrester Lowrie, Territory Manager at Rollon, about two distinct types of rails.

Rollon provides a unique type of rail called Curviline, which is bendable. “Most linear rails are straight. It can go around corners and bend at constant or variable radii. We just need a sketch or print and offer engineering assistance, as well,” Lowrie explained.

Lowrie also described why an application would need this product. “If you have to move around something. It’s used in sliding doors to rotate, and the food industry where a flap may need to close at a certain radius.”

These rails are available in three materials: non-hardened steel, stainless steel that doesn’t corrode, or hardened steel for higher loads. The max weight is 500 pounds, and their life expectancy, depending on loads, is up to 100,000 meters of travel.

Lowrie then spoke about Speedy Rail, which goes fast, up to 15 meters per second! “It’s a hardened extruded aluminum that can carry up to 3000 kilograms and can run for up to 80,000 kilometers.”

The applications for Speedy Rail can be just about anywhere that needs to accelerate processes. “It’s also tolerant to contamination, making it safe for food production,” Lowrie added.

Regarding the lifespan, Lowrie said that the rails are no maintenance, but that load, duty cycle, and lubrication are all factors.
