TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION :
Steel axle :This part is the roller spinal column and also has the mechanical interfaces on his extremities.
Aluminum tube structure :It is the real structure that ensures the roller’s robustness. It is designed to support the strains produced by the vehicle braking and the impacts that happen while the vehicle suddenly go out of the brake tester. The strain can reach up to several thousands of daN.
Worldwide well-known non-skid coating :Today recommended by numerous market actors like the constructors, maintenance companies and French MOT networks, its exceptional resistance enables us to propose a 3 years warranty.
A composite roller is up to 60% lighter than a steel one!
A less than 25 kg weight has some significative advantages: :
- Cheaper and more eco-friendly logistics
- Less stock area needed
- Better productivity: no lifting machines required, less time spent on handling and more work comfort.
4 campaigns of tests have been done for the composite rollers, in partnership with CARMA (translation: Regional Animation Center of Advanced Materials):
- Static tests of resistance through pressures generated by vertical strains
- Static tests of resistance through pressures generated by torsion
- Dynamical tests of resistance through pressures generated by vertical strains
- Dynamical tests of resistance through pressures generated by torsion
- (Coating removal from oxidized steel rollers)
The coating is directly applied on the steel area of the roller, this area must be perfectly prepared in order to be well glued.
While working, the smallest impact or deformation can generate a micro crack on the surface through which water will gradually infiltrate.
Oxidizing can start and the coating removal cannot be avoided.
The ROLL'TECH coating is homologated in France by the UTAC.
The non-skid coating
Elaborated in 1998, it was fully tried and tested first for the damaged roller coating renovation service.
Unsurpassed grip :
The coating composition contains high quality abrasive elements. That is why there is no polishing, which always ensures a regular grip coefficient.
The non-skid coating usually used is generally made with silica, sand, pounded pebbles or welded little picks. In any case, the surface is polishing as time goes by and this phenomenon reduces the coating/tire grip coefficient of the roller and after a while reaches unacceptable values in case of humidity.
