Roller curve conveyors: Innovative details make the decisive difference!

The laws of physics cannot be outwitted: From speeds of around 0.8 m/s, the centrifugal force becomes greater than the frictional force, causing the material being conveyed to move outwards in roller curve conveyors. The material being conveyed then exerts a counter force on the tapered elements of the roller in the direction of the inner radius of the curve. If this happens over an extended period of time, there is a risk that the tapered elements on the roller's steel pipe will move. You can find out how our engineers solved this problem here.

Series 1700KXO

Application area

Driven unit handling conveying in the curve section, e.g. of cardboards, containers or tires. Suitable for implementing gravity or driven roller curves. Tight curve radii are possible if tapered elements with a conicity of 2.2° are used.

High reliability

This roller series has been proven millions of times. Contrary to conventional curve rollers, the elements are secured against shifting. This allows the roller to offer a very high degree of functional dependability.

Low-noise

The use of precision ball bearings, Technopolymer bearing housings and seals result in very quiet running.

Good protection against dirt and water

The roller excels with a good protection against coarse dirt and dripping water. An integrated groove ensures that water can be rejected.

Good running properties

The tapered elements made of polypropylene distinguish themselves with a low net weight so that good startup properties can be achieved.

Robust construction

Robust tapered elements are abrasion-proof, noise-reducing, impact-resistant and excel through a high weather-resistance.
