AbstractA conveyor intended to conduct components to different work stations, the conveyor including:a bearing and guide rail positioned on the work site so as to conduct the products to be conveyed to the work stations,a traction member carried by the rail the member being driven by a drive unit, anda multitude of trolleys movable on the rail and to which the components are attached, each trolley having two wheels running on the rail and two arms bearing the load to be conveyed.The wheels of the trolley include a central core and an outer band both made of composite material and positively connected by fixing element which immobilize the outer band with respect to the central core in order to absorb tensile or compressive stresses and shocks, thereby reducing the noise, wear and lubrication of the elements of the conveyor.
