Idler Rollers

Idler Rollers are used in all web processing industries with different designs to suit particular web materials and applications.
The primary function of Idler Rollers is to provide continual web tension and to ensure that during line speed variances that the roller rpm matches the web speed.

Each roller is designed to suit the application and selected as per the application requirements.

Aluminium Idler rollers are generally used where low inertia and the mass weight of the roller are important ensuring that roller will perform at the required line speeds and tensions demanded by the application. Steel Idler Rollers are used when high tension levels and process speeds exist in web processing applications.

Aluminium Dead Shaft Idler Rollers - Facts and Figures

  • Low inertia properties for low web tension applications
  • Ideal to match required line speeds in low production speed applications
  • Low drag or low friction bearing fitment ensure that the rollers are suitable for lighter duty applications
  • Thru shaft lengths can be varied to mount rollers in various positions of a machine
