Tape rolls

What are the standard dimensions for FMG reels?

We can offer our customers standard castors based on DIN 15207-1. Need a specific length? We would be happy to advise you on different lengths.

What type of tape pulley is best for use in a dusty environment?

Whether a roll of tape is suitable for use in a dusty environment depends on the sealing of the product. For a very dusty environment, we recommend an RS ball bearing that is closed on both sides and the double labyrinth seal made of plastic with an additional felt ring. (e.g. Type 421LF RS). You are welcome to find out more about the different types of seals for tape rolls from our range in our catalog or contact us personally. 

What type of seal for coils of tape is best for high temperature use?

If you need conveyor rolls that can also withstand high temperatures, we recommend a conveyor roll with a high-temperature ball bearing and a sheet metal labyrinth seal (eg type 420B). You can find more information and clear illustrations of all types of sealing in our catalogue.

What is the delivery time for rolls of tape?

Short-term delivery is possible for rolls of tape with standard dimensions - in the event of an accident, we can also deliver within a few days - since these are manufactured for stock. To find out about availability, please contact our sales department. Custom made rolls of tape that we don't keep in stock are made and shipped within three weeks on average. With regard to the respective delivery time, please also contact our sales staff or send us an inquiry.

Driven Conveyor Rollers

Which driven idlers are best suited for the food industry?

Driven conveyor rollers in the food sector are extremely helpful, because in this way the goods can easily be transported from location A to location B. However, there are very special requirements for this sensitive industry in particular in order to ensure impeccable and hazard-free food quality throughout the entire manufacturing, handling and sales process to guarantee. This is exactly what we offer you with our driven conveyor rollers made from carefully selected materials, which are fully suitable for the food sector. You have the choice between rollers with components made of stainless steel and plastic. Galvanized materials are another proven alternative.

Food can be transported with these driven conveyor rollers from our company without impairing the food quality. This makes numerous work processes easier for your company, which is expressed, among other things, in a significant cost reduction. We would be happy to advise you tailored to your requirements, so that you receive high-quality idlers from us at a fair price that are optimally suited to your application.

How much does a driven roller cost?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to give a general cost estimate for driven idlers. As a reputable and fair supplier of these products, we rely on precisely calculated prices in order to keep costs as low as possible for you. In principle, it should be noted that the idler prices depend decisively on the type of roll. What material is it made of? how long is she what is its diameter How is it powered? Those are the crucial questions.

In addition, the number of items has an important influence on pricing. The higher it is, the cheaper we can offer you the product you want for your business. In particular due to the set-up costs, the driven idlers become more expensive for custom-made products and small quantities. We keep some drives in stock, while we are happy to order others especially for you from our trusted suppliers. The latter can come with additional costs.
