A Track Roller is a specialized type of roller designed to follow the curvature of a cam or track and to translate or communicate machine motion or load. The Track Roller is manufactured with radial ball bearings or tapered roller bearings to withstand light to moderate radial loads and improves upon the traditional cam follower, to better accommodate combination loads. PCI’s ∞ Infinity Roller ™ Technology offers unparalleled performance in the most demanding environments by targeting and addressing the vulnerable areas of the assembly. Our innovation behind ∞ Infinity Rollers™ feature the most rugged rubber seals, premium internal bearings with synthetic lubricant and a steel dust cover to maximize performance in dirty applications. PCI’s ∞Infinity Roller™ Technology boasts extended life when compared to any other products on the market. Track Rollers are also offered in an economical Cost Savings Option (CSO). Choose from stud type or yoke mounting styles in a variety of body profiles with black oxide coating on all surfaces.
Feature & Benefit Sell Sheets
Stud Type Concentric
Stud Type Track Rollers provide efficient cantilever mounting. A hex is provided in the end of the stud for mounting purposes and a steel dust cover is positioned in the roller end to help protect the bearings from contamination.
Stud Type Eccentric
Eccentric Stud Track Rollers provide a means of precision positioning between the roller and the track or rail surface. This feature allows for adjustment to provide uniform loading among mounted rollers.
Yoke Type Track Rollers
Yoke Type rollers provide higher load carrying capability by utilizing a double shear mounting arrangement thereby eliminating stud capacity limitations. Can be used with PCI Heavy Duty Yoke Shafts for efficient design & installation practices.
Roller Body Profiles
Plain Track Rollers
Plain/Cylindrical Track Rollers effectively carry radial loads and can be utilized to provide “flotation” when used in tandem with locational units (Flanged, V-Grooved etc.) in response to application misalignment.
Crowned Track Rollers
Crowned Track Rollers have a spherical body profile and are used to reduce the effects of misalignment by better distributing load. Crowned rollers are also used in rotary applications to minimize scrubbing or skidding.
Flanged Track Rollers
Flanged Track Rollers provide single direction guidance in applications where side loads are expected. Like most locational units, Flanged rollers are used in tandem with plain rollers to prevent overload from misalignment.
Double Flanged Track Rollers
Double Flanged Track Rollers provide dual direction guidance along the track in applications where side loads are expected. Like most locational units, Double Flanged rollers are used in tandem with plain rollers to prevent overload from misalignment.
Crowned V & V-Grooved Track Rollers
Crowned V and V-Grooved Track Rollers provide dual direction location and are used with “V” tracks which reduce buildup on the rolling surface. Like most locational units, V-Grooved rollers are used in tandem with plain rollers to prevent overload from misalignment.
U-Grooved Track Rollers
U-Grooved Track Rollers provide multi-direction location and are used with round bar tracks which reduce buildup on the rolling surface. Like most locational units, U-Grooved rollers are used in tandem with plain rollers to prevent overload from misalignment.
Channel & I-Beam Rollers
Channel & I-Beam Track Rollers effectively carry radial loads and are designed with a 9.5° taper to be used with standard I-Beam or C-Channel structural steel as track material.
Wire Guide Rollers
Wire Guide Rollers are designed to operate as wire straightening and cable guides.
Heavy Duty Yoke Shafts
PCI precision carbon steel yoke shafts are carefully designed and machined to tight tolerances to ensure optimum fit and dependable performance with Yoke Type Load Bearing Roller Assemblies.
