Small but brave

A guide roller is a wheel or a roller that ensures that an object continues to follow the imposed path. The guide roller rolls in a profile or on a rail that determines the trajectory. When guiding, the forces on the wheel are usually limited. Impact loads or taking turns puts extra forces on the toller.

When a guide roller also has to carry the load, we are more likely to talk about load wheels and the load bearing capacity becomes a determining factor in the choice of materials Printhopan® or Vulkollan®.
