Track Rollers

Track Rollers are well-structured bearings, perfectly designed to smoothly operate on tracks or cams. Renowned for their robust outer rings, they are engineered to absorb shock loads effectively. They are available in an array of styles - crowned and cylindrical outers, alongside open and sealed versions.

What are Track Rollers?

Track Rollers are bearings that truly stand out because of their robust design and ability to adapt to various applications. They can be categorized into three main types:

  • Yoke Type Track Rollers: These are ready-to-fit needle and cylindrical roller bearings with thick outer rings. They serve as a reliable component in several applications like cam gears, bed ways, conveying equipment, and linear guidance systems. Their design enables them to withstand significant shock loads.
  • Stud Type Track Rollers: Sharing many features with Yoke Type Track Rollers, these variants differentiate themselves with a heavy-duty roller stud in the inner structure. They usually have a hexagonal socket on both ends for added flexibility and application compatibility.
  • Ball Bearing Track Rollers: Corresponding to the deep groove 62 series design, these have an added advantage of thick-walled outer rings. The outer surface is typically crowned, making them capable of supporting high axial forces in both directions, hence offering efficient performance under high load conditions.

No matter your specific requirement, our diverse range of Track Rollers promises efficient operation, excellent load-bearing capacity, and a longer lifespan for your machinery.

What are track rollers and what role do they play in machinery?

Track rollers are special types of bearings that run along tracks or rails in machinery. They’re designed to handle both weights and motion, acting like small wheels, which makes them ideal for situations where parts need to move along a fixed path.

Where can I typically find track rollers being used?

You'll often find track rollers in a variety of machines that move along a guide, such as assembly line equipment, warehouse conveyance systems, sliding doors, or drawer runners. They're also used in certain types of heavy-duty machinery where components need to follow a specific track.

What are the signs that I may need to replace my track rollers?

If you hear abnormal noises, notice that parts aren't moving as smoothly as they should, or see physical wear on the rollers during a routine check, it might be time to replace your track rollers. Regular maintenance checks can help to identify these problems before they cause more harm.

Can I replace track rollers by myself or do I need professional help?

While it's possible to replace track rollers if you're comfortable with mechanical tasks, it's often recommended to get help from a professional. This ensures that the new rollers are installed correctly, which contributes to the proper functioning and safety of your machinery.
