In autumn 2019, the first roller have left the new production hall of Rollex Förderelemente GmbH & Co. KG in Werne.
Production in the new plant has been in full swing since September 2019 and significantly supports and expands the capacities in the series products area. The production area of Rollex Systems thus grows by a further 5000 sqm to a total of 31,000 sqm. In addition, the machine park is expanded to include several fully automatic high-performance saws, robots and a large number of special machines and presses. This package of innovations now offers specific framework conditions for the production of series articles. This already leads to a noticeable relief for the existing plants in Werne and Ebersdorf.
"With the new location, we will be able to meet the growing expectations of our customers in terms of product quality, adherence to delivery dates and production capacity much better. We are proud that the processing and commissioning worked so smoothly. In this form, it would not have been possible without the active support of the employees and everyone involved." as the spokesman of the management said.
The optimization of the flow of goods and the production routes for standardized conveyor elements (in particular idlers, conical rollers, motor rollers) were the focus of the planning of the plant. Thus Rollex is once again well positioned to meet the value proposition and the wishes of customers in the future.
With the expansion of the production areas, the possibility is now being used to expand the component business in the area of warehouse technology. Rollex already offers roller and roller tracks as well as brake roller and brake conveyor roller for different requirements. The area of gravity roller conveyors (First in First out and Last in First out) and components for building your own will also become more important for Rollex.
Rollex Förderelemente GmbH & Co. KG
Werne, october 2019
The Rollex Group, headquartered in Werne (North Rhine-Westphalia), is known for powered and non-driven carrier rollers, motor rollers, drum motors, belt rollers, zero-pressure system components, dynamic storage technology as well as for roller rails and accessories.
In order to meet the increasing demand from the food, chemical and pharmaceutical sectors, the product range and capacities have been expanded accordingly. Rollex offers a variety of solutions in diameter ranges from 16-130 mm. The roller are configured at Rollex according to customer needs. It can be made of different materials such as plastic or different stainless steels can be selected. Since a role consists of a bearing element set or one-sided drive and a suitable material according to the application, there are also many variations here. Everything happens at Rollex considering the requirements, e.g. sealing, material, food grade FDA in the field of bearings as well as in the application of various other coatings such as PVC, NBR rubber, polyurethane, epoxy resin, chrome, Teflon, etc. as well as conical plastic elements for curved roller tracks. In addition, especially for the food industry, roller made of HDPE plastic pipe were developed. As a drive element normally round belt or V-ribbed belt drives
, chain or toothed belt drives can be selected.
If it has to be very clean and quiet, the offer of motorized rollers and drum motors can be used. For example, "oil-free" and energy saving through low self-heating in synchronous motors are important product features. This makes the energy-efficient drives not only interesting for applications in the food sector or in the cold store but also more insensitive to high ambient temperatures. With protection class IP66 in the standard and IP69K as an option, the synchronous motors are ideally suited for the cleaning processes customary in these areas. These units are manufactured by the partner company Momentum, that is specialized in motor roller and drum motors.
In the area of roller tracks, the series 726 can be used in chemical plants or sterile clean room environments due to hermetically sealed rollers with antibacterial components in addition to applications in the food industry. The roller strips withstand a variety of industrial cleaning fluids, for example, Hydrochloric acid. The wheels can be ordered cylindrical or with flange.
As of 01 December 2016, the Rollex Group from Werne (North Rhine-Westphalia) acquired Esch Group B.V. from Waalwijk, the Netherlands.
Esch Group B.V. is one of the leading suppliers of conveyor rollers, bearings, pillow blocks and accessories and has a European customer base in the fields of airport technology, mining, parcel service, agricultural sector as well as the foodstuff industry and bulk material industry. Currently, 50 highly motivated employees produce high-quality components on state-of-the-art machines and plants on a production area of around 8,000 squaremeters.
"With the takeover, we will significantly increase the performance of the Rollex Group in terms of production capacity and product diversity. Through this purchase, we can offer even more solutions from a single source and further increase our market position in the Benelux and neighboring countries. The quality demand and the innovative power of the Esch Group B.V. fits perfectly to our requirements, "says a spokesman for the management.
We are happy to welcome you on our newly designed website!
With a fresh design and revised content, we are now comfortably reachable on other devices such as tablet or smartphone.
Whether it's finding the right roller, downloading product information or getting a general overview - with less than three clicks you reach your destination.
A new addition is the product range Drum Motors. We have created a special section on the website where you can check the new developments of synchronous and asynchronous motors.
We wish you an interesting time in the world of conveyor elements!
The Rollex Multi-Drive Card (RMD card) in combination with the motor roller model 840-50 simplifies the construction of zero pressure systems.
Simply by combining the individual components with the controller card (modular system), complex systems can be put into production quickly and cost-effectively.
And any number of RMD cards can be installed in series.
The Rollex Multi-Drive card (RMD card) controls up to four motors and transports the conveyed material in a zero pressure manner within 4 sections.
The RMD card has a modular structure and can be arbitrarily extended, that is, multiple RMD cards can be connected that communicate with one another. The RMD card makes it possible to create cost-effective designs for the zero pressure conveying of materials.
The individual conveyed materials are detected by photoelectric sensors. Here, there is
no need to switch between switching outputs because standard PNP as well as NPN outputs
can be used. The conveying direction can be approved centrally via a shared control signal. The logical direction then automatically changes. The direction of rotation, however, can also be defined in advance using a rotary encoder switch.
Control is optionally possible using a standard bus system (e.g. Profibus) as well.

At the CeMAT 2014 â the leading trade show for intralogistics â product innovations from the areas of conveyor technology, zero pressure systems and dynamic warehouse technology were presented. National and international visitors were impressed by the variety and performance of the company.
The Rollex product line includes rollers made of steel, plastic or stainless steel in diameters from 16 â 130 mm. For the drive element, you have the choice of sprocket, toothed belt wheel, ribbed belts or round belt drives. It is also possible to installed different coatings such as PVC, NBR rubber, polyurethane, epoxy resin, chromium, Teflon, etc. By using special oils and greases, the rollers can also be used for applications in temperature ranges from 30 to +200Â°C.
On the drive side, the brushless 24V 840-50 motors can be used for 50 mm roller diameters. Conical rollers are available for curves. Components for the design of zero pressure systems (RMD card, Rollex Drive System, etc.) round out the offering.
Innovative design, the latest machine fleet, 120 qualified employees, and the introduction of an ISO 9001-certified quality management system have a positive, sustainable effect on the company's growth.â
