Types of conveyor rollers
Common types of conveyor rollers include:
- Coated conveyor rollers (also known as covered) are a specialty type of roller with a cover made from plastic or rubber. They are often used for applications in metal rolling, printing and paper processing.
- Gravity conveyor rollers incorporate off-the-shelf design specifications combined with advanced structural features. As a result, they are best suited for handling cartons, bags and boxes with unusual shapes.
- Motorized conveyor rollers are packed with control drums. This enables regulation of speed and flow of products. It is possible to have automated product sorting and analysis through motorized zones, which is why these rollers are ideal for use in advanced automated production lines.
- Free spinning conveyor rollers are bearing-laden and designed with an integral free turn capability. They are well suited to conveyor belt support systems and areas that require low friction and flexible rotational output.
