xiros® conveyor rollers

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.

Take advantage of the benefits of our guide rollers:


xiros® ball bearings are lubrication-free
The plastic ball bearings used are lubrication-free and require no further lubrication with grease. As a result, the guide roller does not have to overcome the resistance of the lubricant and always impresses with its smooth running and maintenance-free operation.

Direct from the manufacturer

Polymer ball bearings direct from the manufacturer
xiros® plastic ball bearings are the result of our own efforts and work. You not only benefit from an immense variety directly from the manufacturer, for example compared to solutions as heavy steel, but also from years of experience from the industry's largest test laboratory for motion plastics.


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.

Choosing the right conveyor roller

▷ Seven tips for choosing the right conveyor roller
There are several factors to consider when selecting conveyor rollers. First of all, load-bearing capacity is a decisive criterion. The conveyor roller must be able to safely bear the weight of the transported goods without deforming, sustaining damage or causing downtime. The durability of the conveyor rollers is also of great importance. They should be made of materials with high wear resistance to ensure a long service life.

Rolling friction must also not be ignored. The conveyor rollers should have an optimum surface finish to ensure sufficient grip on the conveyor belt or the transported goods. This contributes to the stability and safety of the conveying process. Ease of installation and maintenance also play a role, as downtimes of the entire conveyor system are thus avoided.
