Driven Conveyor Rollers fmg-sketch-green-1

Cost of driven idlers


The price for driven conveyor rollers depends decisively on the area of ​​application and thus on customer requirements. Significant criteria when choosing a suitable driven roller are the nature of the material to be conveyed and its weight. For example, other conveyor rollers with a drive are used in the food sector than when transporting wood.

Choosing the right idler roller from our sophisticated range is very important so that you can transport your goods from one place to another under optimal conditions. In order to avoid delays in work processes and work stoppages in general, it is important that the idler roller used rotates smoothly on the bearing. Each individual element of the apparatus has an influence on smooth running, load-bearing capacity and running accuracy.

In addition to the goods to be transported, the location is important when selecting the right driven idler roller. That's why we offer our rollers with a wide variety of bearing types, tube diameters and axle finishes. In addition, you can choose between different materials. At this point it should be mentioned that rollers with a plastic coating are particularly suitable for goods with a very low weight. For heavy goods we recommend robust steel tubes. You then benefit from a maximum load capacity per roll of up to 400 kg.

In addition to the individual roll model, the number of pieces ordered also has a decisive influence on the final price. The higher the number of driven idlers, the lower the cost per piece. On the one hand, this is due to the set-up costs and thus the costs that arise from the realization of the conversion of production systems. But that is not the only influencing factor. Custom-made products that do not correspond to the standard in the product catalog are associated with additional costs. We fulfill some customer requests at short notice with components from our warehouse. For others we need the support of our competent suppliers. Your prices significantly influence the prices for our valued customers.
