Rosta Inc. has been keeping manufacturing operations going in Canada for more than three decades, with world-class machine components and elements. These solutions are based on designs and innovations pioneered at the company’s global headquarters in Switzerland, developed through Rosta’s unmatched mastery of three kinds of technology: rubber suspension technology, oscillating conveyor technology, and tensioning technology. With its unsurpassed experience and knowledge in these areas, Rosta makes great products that suit a broad range of applications and industrial markets.
The three main Rosta divisions
To focus on each of these technologies separately, Rosta Inc. is grouped into three main divisions. One of these is devoted to rubber suspension technology. Rosta makes a wide variety of standards rubber suspension elements for anti-vibration mounts and elastic torsion mounts, typically used for springing, damping, and supporting. Each of these components can be a torsional spring, pivot bearing, and/or anti-vibration mount. Their features include pendulum suspensions for unbalanced motors, torque supports for gear motors, energy-absorbing impact suspensions, and torsional springs for constant surface pressure.
The second key technology in which Rosta specializes is oscillating conveyor technology, particularly when it comes to oscillating mountings for manufacturers of vibrating conveyors. Oscillating conveyor technology is especially relevant to free oscillating conveyors, guided shaker conveyors, and gyratory sifters. Suspension systems for free oscillating vibrating systems offer high amounts of efficiency and isolation. Other product options include those for circular motion screens, linear motion screens, and discharge chutes.
The third technology area, tensioning technology, plays a part in Rosta’s design and manufacture of machine elements for maintenance-free tensioning of belts and chain drives. Among the variations are self-adjusting motor-base suspension initial tensioning of large belt drives and easily installed chain and belt tensioners for efficient secondary tensioning.
Rosta’s tensioning products remove the need for compensation of lengthening because of age or belt slip in machine design. Tensioner devices provide many benefits, including quiet chain runs, reduced wear on rollers and bearings, prevention of excessive slipping and overheating, accurate transport of work pieces, a cost-efficient substitute for pressure cylinders, precisely defined contact pressure, and durability.
