Self-lubricating conveyor rollers offer oil-free deflection for conveyor belts

Our self-lubricating conveyor rollers, designed with our high-performance iglide® polymer materials, provide precise, grease-free guidance for conveyor belts. They offer a tight deflection radius and require a low amount of drive power. They’re also easy to assemble, extremely cost-effective, maintenance-free, and resistant to dirt, dust, corrosion and chemicals. We offer standard conveyor rollers as well as custom solutions manufactured from the materials below.

Benefits:

  • Tight deflection radii
  • Maintenance-free
  • Self-lubricating
  • No risk of lubricant contamination
  • Durable and wear-resistant
  • Hygienic design without ball or needle cages
  • Easy to clean
  • FDA-compliant
  • Resistant to temperature, chemicals, dirt and corrosion


Customer Applications:

Krones AG Packaging System

Krones AG

Regarding Variopac Pro, a fully automatic all-rounder packaging system, Krones faced a problem in 2005: the system's performance had to be increased by 20 packages per minute. Hence, there was an urgent need for action during the deflection of the conveyor belts.

Raw Baking Food Processing

raw food processing

It is not only raw bakery products that present the machine manufacturer in the food sector with considerable challenges. If two conveyor belts are butt-jointed to each other, the radii of the conveyor rollers result in a gap between the two belts.

Wear test in the test laboratory

Tumble test rig: load 1N/mm2, speed 0.3m/s

To give you precise details on the wear rate of our conveyor rollers, these are examined under realistic conditions in our test laboratory. Four different iglide® materials as well as PET-P and POM-C were tested. To also make statements regarding the wear behavior depending on the shaft materials, conveyor rollers were tested on V2A and silver steel shafts.  

Wear rates of the different iglide® materials for conveyor rollers

Load: 1MPa, speed: 0.3m/s and 0.6m/s

Conveyor rollers made of various iglide® materials running on 304 stainless steel shafts were tested. The materials were tested at speeds of 0.3m/s and 0.6m/s.
