17th February 2023

Gravity Conveyor Roller

Gravity conveyor rollers are one of the most simple to use options in the industry. But they may be the most efficient and practical choice as well. Gravity conveyor rollers are not powered by an external source, they use gravity to power the conveyor rollers and transport your products. This means they need to be on a downward path at a specific angle to ensure the flow of the conveyor rollers.

Gravity conveyor rollers are used to transport objects that have enough weight to move unassisted. As the conveyor rollers need gravity to move, if an object is too lightweight, it won’t move on the conveyor belt. Some examples of products that gravity conveyor rollers are ideal to transport are medium-weight food and packaged goods.

Plastic Conveyor Roller

An affordable alternative to metal conveyor rollers is plastic conveyor rollers. Plastic conveyor rollers are a cost-effective choice that doesn’t sacrifice on quality. They’re ideal for a range of industries as they make cleaning efficient and simple. A more expensive option to plastic conveyor rollers are stainless-steel conveyor rollers, but that doesn’t mean plastic conveyor rollers aren’t the right choice for your workplace.

Plastic conveyor rollers are easy to clean & together with stainless steel conveyor rollers are the best choice for transporting packages in the food industry. If your business needs hygienic conveyor rollers ideal for moving lightweight products, plastic conveyor rollers are the right option.

Rubber-coated Conveyor Roller

Rubber coated gravity conveyor rollers may be used for a couple of reasons. Firstly where the product is delicate & prone to damage the rubber coating gives more gentle handling. Also where the product may be easily marked we can use a non-marking rubber coating to prevent this from happening.

Rubber coated drive conveyor rollers allow the ability to create more friction between the conveyor roller & the belt it is driving. This is particularly useful where belt slippage occurs. CAS Rollers can provide all of our conveyor rollers with a huge variety of rubber types to suit any application including various food grade rubber options.

Steel & Stainless-steel Conveyor Rollers

Steel and stainless-steel conveyor rollers are some of the most popular options available. They’re easy to clean, strong and durable, and can transport heavy-duty materials. Making them a reliable investment for a wide range of industries. At CAS Rollers, our steel and stainless-steel conveyor rollers are manufactured from the highest-quality raw materials in the industry.

Another strength of steel and stainless-steel conveyor rollers is their adaptability. It doesn’t matter if you have a simple or complex system, stainless-steel conveyor rollers can fit into your conveyor belt. They can also be adapted to fit precision bearings, smaller diameters, or fixed shafts. This means you can adjust the stainless-steel conveyor rollers to meet your workplace’s needs.

All our metal conveyor rollers are the perfect fit for drive, tail, snub, idle, tension, and return conveyor roller uses.
