In many production lines, such as the ones for float glass production, roller tracks are used to transport the respective elements. Hereby, the rollers are made of rubber rings which are fit onto shafts. In this regard, the euroTECH transport rollers type NKR shorten time-consuming maintenance effort. They are made of two roller halves which are directly mounted on the desired position on the shaft by simply tightening two screws.
Up to this point, in case of maintenance, the whole shaft had to be dismounted and the rollers had to be replaced. Afterwards, the shaft had to be mounted in the roller track again. The time effort was about one hour per shaft.
With the new rollers from euroTECH the time effort can be reduced to only a few minutes. Moreover, it is possible to specifically replace only single rollers on a shaft in less than a minute without demounting the other rollers.
