Load Runners

Load Runners

Load Runners, commonly referred to as Track Rollers, are idler-rollers specially designed to tolerate both radial and thrust loads for heavy-duty applications. Load Runners utilize tapered roller bearings or deep groove ball bearings instead of needle rollers like traditional cam followers. Load runners are characterized by thick walled outer rings that run directly on a track, allowing for high load carrying capacity and minimizing distortion and bending stresses. Load runners are known for high capacity and accuracy for linear motion applications, such as material handling and indexing. Load Runners are available in various styles, such as v-groove, flanged and plain, channel and I-Beam.
