- About Us
Although the default choice for heavy doors, metal rollers require ongoing lubrication. And even when properly lubricated, they will eventually wear and need replacement. On the other hand, ordinary plastic guide rollers, tend to skip, skid, or stick - because they lack dimensional stability and flatten or grow away from their bearings when exposed to real-world dynamic loads, temperatures, moisture or chemicals.
Our proprietary PowerCore rollers feature a hybrid design that offers a number of advantages over metals and other plastics in sliding door applications:
Produces highly concentric rollers that retain their concentricity during use.
Maintains dimensional stability and avoids swelling if exposed to moisture.
Features a crystalline molecular structure that makes it more resistant to the compression forces that cause flat spots.
Most rollers experience shock loads that can damage metal or plastic rollers over time. Power-Core overcomes these challenges:
Counteracts shocks, thanks to its inherent damping characteristics.
Exhibits lower rolling resistance than metals, resulting in sliding doors that operate smoothly and quietly.
Our Power-Core polymer withstands temperature swings and chemicals, is contamination-free and approved for cleanrooms—features that are important in medical, electronics and machine tool applications:
Requires no lubrication, eliminating the wear mechanism that generates particulates.
Available with stainless steel bearings and cleanroom-approved lubricant
