MC Rollon New Digital Platform Delivers Fast Product Selection 1 400 

Rollon, a leading manufacturer of linear motion systems, guides, linear actuators, and gantry systems, has unveiled a new digital tool to help engineers design equipment and systems more efficiently.

The new ecosystem consists of two core elements: a redesigned corporate website and myRollon — a revolutionary tool that personalizes product selection.

The website has been expanded with brand new content and graphics showcasing technical concepts, application examples and industry insights for designers and planners looking to implement linear motion into their applications.

It also offers numerous gateways to myRollon, where designers can pre-select their desired motion component and apply various filters to generate a list of products that best meet their application needs.

Registered users can also access a reserved portal to retrieve searches as well as interface with Rollon experts via email, web meetings and live chats.

The new ecosystem — accessible in 14 languages and in 18 countries — is part of Rollon’s continuous commitment to make product selection faster and more user-friendly.
