How Custom is a Custom Roller?

How “custom” is a custom roller? At Slideways, the short answer is “as custom as you need it.” We have extensive experience in manufacturing all kinds of conveyor system rollers in a wide range of materials for any number of applications, including unit material handling systems, food processing equipment, and conveyor chain and belt returns.

Our engineers can help you determine just the right roller solution to fit your specific need. Our custom and semi-custom rollers all come with the benefits of our high quality plastic bearings, including quiet performance, low maintenance, washdown resistance, and self-lubrication.

Does your conveyor system need to meet FDA or other regulatory compliance standards? We can manufacture custom rollers with tubing made from plastic, carbon steel, stainless steel and other materials; bearings in UHMW, nylon plastic, and steel; and shafting in carbon steel, stainless steel, as well as stub shafts. In fact, we can supply conveyor rollers with a variety of sprockets, custom shafts, special tubing material and many other specialty components. All we need for most standard conveyor systems is the between-frame dimension, measured from inside the frame to inside the frame, the conveyor roller diameter and the roller axle size.

Custom conveyor rollers from Slideways can be a cost-efficient solution that provides extra life and improved efficiency to your conveyor system. Custom design options can include:

  • Spring loaded shafts
  • Cotter pin holes in shafts
  • Threaded ends on shafts
  • Grooves for drive belts on the rollers
  • Sprocket drive ends
