Conveyor Roller Bearings for Overhead Systems

Overhead conveyor technology with xiros® ball bearings for silicone cartridges
The self-lubricating and maintenance-free qualities are crucial for ensuring efficient material handling in overhead conveyor technology. A trouble-free warehouse management process is based on resilient components. xiros® conveyor roller bearings are ideal for the specific requirements of the industry and its various branches. The flexible and lightweight plastic ball bearings, which require only a small amount of installation space, are suitable for a wide range of applications (chain conveyors, power and free conveyors, circular conveyors or even bag sorters/ pouch sorters).

In overhead conveying systems, xiros® conveyor roller bearings can be used directly on overhead conveyor tracks, which can be optimally adapted to the respective roller carrier system. This helps transport weights of up to 5kg/extender crossbar and speeds of up to 1,000rpm in laundries, for example. Laundromats can use the self-lubricating plastic for safe, clean and sustainable transport. For other designs, higher loads can be realized without any problems.
