We are supplier of Industrial Hilman Rollers. Ranging in size from small machinery to entire bridges, buildings and offshore oil rigs; Hilman Rollers have moved some of the largest objects in the world. Used as a temporary means for moving a heavy structure, repetitively in assembly line applications or as a permanent installation on board an oil-rig; Hilman Rollers are known throughout the world for their durability. All Hilman Rollers utilize the endless chain principle; which features a chain of steel rolls capable of rotating about a central load-bearing, steel plate.
There are hundreds of different models of individual Hilman Rollers. Standard Hilman Roller model capacities range from ½-Ton to 1000-Tons. If you require capacity in excess of 1000-metric tons from a single, individual Hilman Roller we encourage you to contact us to discuss your application in greater depth. There are several different models available with the same capacity, with different dimensions, and suitable for specific applications. Please review the different series of Hilman Rollers below to learn more about each series and view the different capacities. We encourage you to visit the “How to select your rollers” page.
Some things, in general, to remember about Hilman Rollers:
All Hilman Rollers are rated in metric tons.
Nearly all Hilman Rollers can be used inverted with the load bearing plate below the contact surface.
All Standard Hilman Rollers carry at least a 1-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects.
All Hilman Rollers models have been tested and, under ideal conditions when under load, maintain a coefficient of better than 5%.
Range:0.75 Ton to 1000 Ton
Nyton Series Hilman Rollers are ideal for moving heavy machinery and equipment on delicate floor surfaces. The ultimate goal of the Nyton Series is floor protection. These rollers work very well on epoxy coated and sealed concrete floors as well as some types of tile floors. Nyton Series are all offered with padded tops to accommodate slightly uneven floor surfaces.

These low profile, 3-Point Load Moving Systems are perfect for moving over finished floors. They are currently available in load moving capacities of 6, 12, and 18 tons with additional load capacities coming soon. Choose from Nylon, Polyurethane, or Steel rolls to suit your moving requirements.
The combination of a low friction and accurately guided roller can be very useful, especially if the distance is great and the final placement needs to be precise. Additionally, if the item being moved requires careful handling, accuracy ensures integrity of the final project.
An Accu-Roll Guidance System is an addition to a Hilman Roller that is designed to better integrate the roller with some type of uniform track, for the purpose of maintaining positive alignment during a move. Accu-Roll Systems can be designed for virtually any roller but mostly it is the XYS, ERF, OT/NT/T and SHD Series Rollers that benefit most.
In general the OT/NT/T-Series and the SHD-Series are the most common to utilize Accu-Roll systems. As standard designs they offer the most versatile platforms to start from in terms of the range of capacities and variety of top styles.
Hilman Rollers with Accu-Roll work best on steel flat bars and structural shapes; such as inverted channels, I-beams and Wide-flanged beams. When selecting a track it is important to make certain that the width and thickness properly accommodate the width of a roller’s footprint where it is intended to be in contact on the track. It is also important to consider the sub-surface of the track to make sure it is supported properly.
