Rollon acquires iMSRollon, a leading manufacturer of linear guides, linear axes and multi-axis systems, has acquired Intelligent Machine Solutions Inc. (iMS), a US-based manufacturer of standard and customised linear assemblies for the automation industry.

With the acquisition, Rollon expands its product range of linear axis systems and traversing axes for robots to include static loads of over 45,000 kg and robot payloads up to 2,000 kg.

“The acquisition of iMS builds on our longstanding engineering expertise and enables us to increase our competitiveness and realise new revenues in the area of heavy-duty linear applications,” explains Rüdiger Knevels, CEO of Rollon. “This deal expands our product range and creates new opportunities for us in the growing, approximately €600 million (approximately $700 million) robot travel unit segment.

“In addition to very high load capacities, these new linear axis systems and travel axes for robots can be easily used in automation processes in many industries. They are modular in design, can be adapted to specific applications and can be quickly assembled.

Other features include:

  • Robust steel construction
  • High positioning accuracy due to a rack-and-pinion drive with servo gears
  • Standard multi-axis configurations
