ROSTA: big­ger and brighter than ever

The Australian Mining Review - - COMPANIES GEARING UP -

THE widely known ROSTA range of rub­ber tor­sion el­e­ment prod­ucts have been pro­vid­ing so­lu­tions to the min­ing, oil and gas in­dus­tries in fixed, mod­u­lar and mo­bile plant — as well as a myr­iad of other in­dus­tries — for 73 years.

The ROSTA Aus­tralia sub­sidiary in Malaga, WA, was es­tab­lished by ROSTA AG Switzer­land in Jan­uary 2015 to ser­vice the Aus­tralia and Asia Pa­cific re­gion, fol­low­ing many decades of ROSTA prod­uct pro­mo­tion by agents and distrib­u­tors.

ROSTA Aus­tralia’s vast stock hold­ing is for the sup­port of its dis­trib­u­tor net­work, OEMs and end-users.

ROSTA Aus­tralia staff col­lec­tively has more than 50 years of ex­pe­ri­ence with ROSTA prod­ucts and have seen the de­vel­op­ment of many so­lu­tions from con­cept to re­al­ity.

ROSTA’s Main Prod­uct Cat­e­gories

ROSTA Os­cil­lat­ing Mount­ings of­fer a broad range of units in­clud­ing AB mounts which are used for screen and feeder sus­pen­sion for fixed, mod­u­lar and mo­bile plant ap­pli­ca­tions in the min­ing and quar­ry­ing in­dus­tries to re­place coil springs, rub­ber block and airbag sys­tems.

The AB mounts have proven to be re­li­able and long last­ing, even in hos­tile en­vi­ron­ments which has en­deared them to end users and OEMs alike.

ROSTA Sin­gle Pivot MB Mo­tor­bases are used for main­tain­ing belt ten­sion on V Belt drives, such as those used on crush­ers, feed­ers, screens, fans, pumps and just about any ap­pli­ca­tion which utilises V belts. Sizes range from 0.75kW to more than 550kW.

ROSTA ATEX Sin­gle Pivot MB Mo­tor­bases are suit­able for ap­pli­ca­tions in haz­ardous ar­eas ac­cord­ing to the ATEX 94/9/EC Direc­tive.

ROSTA Su­pe­rior Lift Mo­tor­bases are used in over­head drive ap­pli­ca­tions, and are es­pe­cially suited to pump drives. Th­ese mo­tor­bases elim­i­nate the of­ten-used ver­ti­cal jack­ing bolt sys­tem and makes belt changes safer, quicker and eas­ier as the V belt drive align­ment is main­tained through­out the mo­tor move­ment range. As with the com­pany’s whole MB ROSTA Mo­tor­base range, there is a no­tice­able im­prove­ment in pul­ley and V belt life as belt ten­sion is main­tained for a longer pe­riod when com­pared to a fixed sys­tem.

ROSTA Ten­sion­ers for chain drives range from 3/8” pitch up­wards.

As well as the stan­dard ROSTA SE type Ten­sion­ers, ROSTA pro­duce cus­tom Ten­sion­ers to suit just about any drive ap­pli­ca­tion.

ROSTA Anti-Vi­bra­tion Mounts are used for iso­la­tion of vi­bra­tion and im­pact from sur­round­ing struc­tures. Th­ese are es­pe­cially use­ful for ab­sorb­ing high im­pact loads on con­veyor trans­fer point ap­pli­ca­tions.

ROSTA Rub­ber Sus­pen­sion units are mod­u­lar com­po­nents that ROSTA pro­duces in a va­ri­ety of de­signs which find their way into in­no­va­tive en­gi­neer­ing de­signs the world over.

As well as its range of stan­dard prod­ucts, ROSTA’s abil­ity to de­sign, an­a­lyse and pro­duce cus­tom rub­ber tor­sion el­e­ments is sec­ond to none.

The com­pany is proud of its prod­ucts, and qual­ity val­i­da­tion is of the high­est im­por­tance.

A well-equipped re­search and de­vel­op­ment depart­ment leaves noth­ing to chance; the ma­te­ri­als tests that take place be­fore and pe­ri­od­i­cally dur­ing pro­duc­tion are the guar­an­tees for a com­pre­hen­sive qual­ity stan­dard – so cus­tomers can be rest as­sured that a spare part el­e­ment pro­duced in 10 years’ time will have the same char­ac­ter­is­tics as the one sup­plied to­day.

ROSTA is in its el­e­ment pro­vid­ing cus­tomer sup­port and as­sis­tance to find a pos­si­ble so­lu­tion, in­de­pen­dent of the type of in­dus­try.

ROSTA prod­ucts have been a stal­wart to the re­sources sec­tor for decades.
