Con­vey­or tech­nol­o­gy for the iron and steel industry

It is not with­out rea­son that the iron and steel indus­try is referred to as a heavy indus­try. As a result, the high phys­i­cal loads to which intral­o­gis­tics sys­tems are exposed require extreme­ly robust and durable tech­ni­cal solu­tions. This indus­try man­u­fac­tures semi-fin­ished prod­ucts that are processed by means of the non-cut­ting form­ing of met­al blanks in red-hot con­di­tion in rolling mills and smelt­ing works. The wall thick­ness of the rollers and bear­ings used must there­fore also be dimen­sioned for max­i­mum loads. Nor­mal­ly, when a con­vey­or sys­tem is required, we are already com­mis­sioned in the plan­ning phase with the pre­cise deter­mi­na­tion of the require­ments and the appli­ca­tion-ori­ent­ed pro­duc­tion of suit­able heavy load rollers.

Extreme load­ing requires spe­cial con­vey­or roller design

We at ROS know: When the design of a con­vey­or sys­tem is too light for the rough pro­duc­tion envi­ron­ments of today, an entire series of dis­ad­van­tages may result. These include the risk of long and, above all, fre­quent down­times along with increas­ing main­te­nance require­ments. For this rea­son, it is not uncom­mon for cus­tomers of third-par­ty man­u­fac­tur­ers to turn to our team of experts with the desire to equip their exist­ing con­vey­or sys­tem with spe­cial­ly man­u­fac­tured rollers that can with­stand extreme loads, even in con­tin­u­ous indus­tri­al oper­a­tion. For such cus­tomers, we devel­op roller bod­ies that are suit­able for the desired appli­ca­tion and sat­is­fy all the require­ments for the trans­fer of steel prod­ucts in smelt­ing works. The heavy load rollers we man­u­fac­ture are com­plete­ly com­pat­i­ble with exist­ing con­vey­or sys­tems – only the exist­ing rollers have to be replaced.

Adap­ta­tion and dimen­sion­ing of bear­ings and con­vey­or rollers

For the iron and steel indus­try, we design con­vey­or rollers to be more mas­sive and thick­er-walled. In addi­tion, we equip them with spe­cial bear­ings for high loads and an option for relu­bri­cat­ing the bear­ings. This reduces the required man­u­al main­te­nance to a minimum.


ROS Rol­len­tech­nik devel­ops and man­u­fac­tures opti­mal­ly dimen­sioned heavy load rollers both for new con­vey­or sys­tems and for retro­fitting exist­ing con­vey­or sys­tems in the iron and steel indus­try. These spe­cial cus­tom devel­op­ments make full use of the exten­sive exper­tise of our engi­neers and tech­ni­cians. From the first dis­cus­sion onwards, we sup­port our cus­tomers con­tin­u­ous­ly with our expert advice, ensur­ing that lit­tle time pass­es before the desired solu­tion can be deliv­ered and put into oper­a­tion – with an excel­lent price/​performance ratio. Should rollers require replace­ment after a long ser­vice life, our spare parts ser­vice is avail­able at any time, even for cus­tom products.
