Conveyor rollers with storage shelves made of plastic enjoy because of their versatile application possibilities a growing popularity. Compared to conventional idlers with steel bearing floors, they offer numerous advantages that ensure smooth material transport in conveyor systems. The plastic bearing bases are firmly pressed into the reel body and enable integration in different designs. So they are suitable for light to medium loads and are used in various industries.
Carrying rollers with plastic bearing bases are a robust and reliable component in many industrial conveyors. The plastic bearing base is pressed into the roller body and enables the transport of light to medium-heavy goods. Thanks to their durable construction, they are durable and can also be used in particularly demanding environments. Whether in the food and pharmaceutical industry, at airports or in agriculture - conveyor rollers with plastic bearing bases are a solution for many applications.
Variety of materials and a long service life: advantages of plastic idlers
One of the most important properties of conveyor rollers with plastic bearing bases is the possibility of designing them with a very small diameter, for example with a diameter of 16x1mm. This means that they can also be used in narrow conveyor systems with a lack of space. In addition, these idlers are compared to others very quiet, which is important in many areas. The use of Plastic as a material also offers a very good seal against dust and dripping water, which the Extends the service life of the rollers and reduces maintenance.
The rollers with plastic bearing bases are suitable for light to medium loads. They can be integrated in different versions, depending on the requirements of the respective conveyor system.
Another advantage of idlers with plastic bearing bases is that they also made conductive on request can become. This special design is particularly important in environments where electrostatic charges must be avoided. This is essential primarily in electronics manufacturing or in the area of chemical production.
Long service life thanks to good sealing: properties of conveyor rollers with plastic bearing bases
Carrying rollers with plastic bearing floors provide a good seal. This increases the life of the rollers. The plastic bearing base is pressed into the reel body and offers compared to other materials such as Steel or aluminum provide a very good seal against dust and dripping water. This increases the protection against moisture or dirt particles in the rollers, which reduced friction and extends the life of the rollers. In addition, the seal reduces maintenance as the rollers do not need to be cleaned or replaced as often.
Flexibility through individual designs: carrying rollers with plastic bearing floors
Conveyor rollers with plastic bearing bases can be designed as gravity conveyor rollers or as driven rollers. The driven variants are equipped with a bead, gear wheel or toothed belt drive and thus enable a precise control of the conveying speed. Overall, idlers with plastic bearing bases offer an excellent choice for customers looking for an efficient and reliable solution to their conveying needs.
What thermal load is permissible?
The conveyor rollers with plastic bearing bases from FMG can withstand temperatures between -20°C and +70°C. This makes them suitable for a wide range of applications in different industries. However, it should be noted that at temperatures higher than 70°C, deformation of the plastic material can occur, which affects the performance of the idlers.
Are FMG idlers with plastic bearing bases always in stock?
FMG is a leading manufacturer of idlers and offers its customers a wide range of high-quality and durable products for various conveyor systems. We manufacture all rollers with plastic bearing bases quickly and individually according to our customers' specifications. We also manufacture in small quantities.
Are the plastic storage floors electrically dissipative?
The conveyor rollers with plastic bearing floors from FMG Förderelemente are a versatile solution for different conveyor systems and material transport. Especially in environments with flammable liquids, antistatic properties are important to minimize the risk of sparking and potentially dangerous situations. For this reason, FMG also offers idlers with dissipative plastic bearing floors that guarantee an antistatic function.
The discharge of static electricity is an important aspect in many areas, such as in the chemical industry, in refineries, in gas stations or in production facilities for batteries or electronic components. When handling materials used in these environments, electrostatic charges can occur which can cause sparks and dangerous situations. Such risks can be minimized with the conveyor rollers from FMG with dissipative plastic bearing floors.
