Lubrication-free guide rollers for material handling systems

The alternative to steel guide rollers where low loads are involved

While the requirements in the area of material handling, especially intralogistics, are increasing continuously, the demands placed on the materials used due to the goods to be transported are also rising. Given the increasing speed, one important element of drive systems must always function reliably: the bearing. There are different types of guide roller: driven guide rollers made of steel, types made of stainless steel or plastic. They are used to establish a rolling contact between the conveyor frame and the conveyor belt. The guide rollers supplied by igus® can be used flexibly and, depending on the requirements, can be fitted with different deep groove bearing bearings. The igus® conveyor rollers are not only used in the area of material handling but also in labelling machines, the packaging industry and the food industry, where they are sometimes used as guide rollers.

Profit from the advantages of our guide rollers and conveyor rollers:

Lubrication-free

xiros® ball bearings are lubrication-free

The polymer ball bearings used are lubrication-free and do not need any further external lubrication. As a result, the guide roller does not have to overcome the resistance of the lubricant and, while always operating smoothly, is also maintenance-free. You achieve savings in three ways: with regard to maintenance, weight and price.

Direct from the manufacturer

Polymer ball bearings direct from the manufacturer

xiros® polymer ball bearings are the result of our own efforts and work. You profit not only from an immense variety of products that are available directly from the manufacturer and have significant advantages compared to solutions made of heavy steel, for example, but also from our many years of experience gained in the industry's largest test laboratory for motion plastics.

food-compatible

FDA-compliant ball bearings from igus®

Our guide rollers can be used without hesitation in equipment that handles food and beverages. They are resistant to chemicals such as fatty acids or grease. This has been attested by the European Commission with VO 10/2011/EU based on VO 1935/2004/EG.
