Rollon partners with TraceParts to publish its 3D catalogs of linear motion systems

As part of its global sales growth initiative, Rollon teams up with TraceParts to offer online technical data and CAD models to design engineers, wherever they are.

Saint-Romain, France, 7 October 2015 - In cooperation with TraceParts, Rollon is now making their 2D and 3D CAD data available for free download.

Rollon, one of the technological leaders in linear motion systems, including telescopic guides, linear guides and actuators, has always focused on delivering first class technical support to engineers in different applications such as industrial machines, railway, aerospace, logistics, special vehicles, packaging or medical. To further enhance its service to design engineers, Rollon has now partnered with TraceParts to offer them instant access to its 2D and 3D drawings and technical data.

The publishing of its 3D catalog fully supports Rollon's global growth strategy which was initiated in 2011 with the acquisition of El.More, a manufacturer of linear actuators and tables. More recently, Rollon made another acquisition in 2015 of Tecno Center also, a specialist in actuators.

"The decision to work with TraceParts was a way to support our growth worldwide. Publishing our CAD data with TraceParts allows us access to exclusive resources that generate and deliver quality sales leads, drive business and yield a measurable return on investment. Since working with TraceParts, we have significantly increased our number of sales leads" explains Roberto Toniolo, Marketing Director at Rollon.

Rollon's growth strategy led the company to expand the business in Europe but also in China, India and Russia with the direct presence of Rollon employees.

Alessandro Broi, Marketing executive at Rollon added that "Rollon chose TraceParts to offer our customers an online CAD library of our main product lines: Linear Line, Telescopic Line and Actuator Line. It was easy to implement our own CAD model delivery platform with TraceParts and even easier to manage new leads and projects generated by TraceParts".

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
