Gravity & Powered Rollers
The rollers are the critical component of the gravity conveyor systems, and are manufactured to many specifications depending on the application.
Tapered rollers or split parallel rollers are used for curves and bends and may be deigned to suit the project. Rollers can be mild steel, stainless steel or plastic, rubber coated, zinc coated or galvanised. The spindles may be spring loaded, stub axles, drilled and tapped or turned down with a male end thread.

The actual type of roller to be used is totally dependant on the application in question and what product is to be conveyed. For quotation purposes we need to know such information as:-

  • Weights and dimensions of product,
  • The environment they are to be used in (e.g. ambient temperature, wet environment etc.),
  • If they are to be used in an existing frame, what is the inside frame width and at what pitch are they to be set at,
  • Should they be light, medium or heavy duty,
  • What capacity do you require the bearings to withstand.

Once these questions are answered, the correct type of roller can be produced. Please contact us for discussion or quotation purposes, and indeed for further information.
