Yoke type track rollers

Yoke type track rollers are one of our specialties. In weaving machines for instance, track rollers are used in the slay drive or in the gripper. Yoke type track rollers convert the rotating motion of the cam disk and eccentric disk to a precisely defined and calculated back-and-forth motion. In the process, forces occur that can vary greatly in one cycle. These forces can increase very quickly, which can produce a strong impact on the bearing. That’s why our pulleys have especially thick walled outer rings made from special rolling bearing steels. In addition we have optimized the tires so that slanted positions can be compensated and the contact pressure between the raceways can be reduced. This means longer life for both our bearings and your surrounding structure.
