Group Overview

Founded in 1975, for over 45 years Rollon has specialized in the production and development of linear motion systems.

Since 2018, Rollon has been a part of The Timken Company, representing the linear motion unit within the Industrial Motion division of Timken. Rollon’s solutions are globally adopted in industrial automation, aerospace, medical equipment, material handling, and other sectors where product performance, efficiency and reliability are essential.

With the acquisition by The Timken Company of Nadella, Chiavette Unificate, Durbal, Shuton-Ipiranga, and Rosa Sistemi, Rollon is now able to offer its customers an even more comprehensive product range – from linear rails, telescopic rails, and actuators to ball screws, and rod ends.
