Precision machined steel tracks can be manufactured and supplied by Hilman for rollers outfitted with Accu-Roll Guidance Systems.
The combination of a low friction and accurately guided roller can be very useful, especially if the distance is great and the final placement needs to be precise. Additionally, if the item being moved requires careful handling, it is
better to integrate the rollers with some type of uniform track for maintaining positive alignment and accuracy during a move.
Hilman Rollers with Accu-Roll work best on steel flat bars and structural shapes; such as inverted channels, I-beams and Wide-flanged beams. When selecting a track it is important to make certain that the width and thickness properly accommodate the width of a roller’s footprint where it is in contact on the track. It is also important to consider the sub-surface of the track for proper support.
Other components for customized systems are available through our engineering specialists.
