Shuttleworth recognizes that each product application places a unique set of demands on the rollers that convey them along the path. With that in mind, we've developed specialty compounds for a variety of standard acetal and specialty rollers to structurally maintain a high strength to weight ratio based on specific product applications.
With over 200 different roller varieties, we likely already have a roller to fit your particular application.
Created from FDA-compliant material, our standard slip-fit acetal roller can accommodate a maximum temperature rating of 200°F and is used with most Slip-Torque® applications. With 5-8% forward force, the standard acetal roller is ideal for mass accumulation applications. Available in a variety of colors and as an ultra slick roller option.
Shuttleworth's spring-loaded core roller shafts push the rollers together using springs to create a more positive drive on the conveyor surface. The amount of positive drive produced can be adjusted based on the spring tension and the number of spring loaded shafts on the surface.
Our solid press fit roller is the perfect solution for food applications and is FDA-compliant. Roller is pressed onto the shaft to provide more driving force to the product.
The solid anti-static roller is FDA-compliant and reduces the amount of static build-up between the product and roller surface.
This slip-fit acetal core with silicon tire roller is ideal for high temperatures and is chemical resistant. This roller also provides more drive to the product.
Constructed in polyurethane with acetal hubs, this roller is extra soft and provides more surface friction while still offering gentle product handling on the product surface and holding product orientation.
A solid, slip-fit roller used in chemical resistant applications and meets FDA-compliance. We also offer the polypropylene roller in a longer tube format for medical and chemical resistant applications.
This slightly softer surface is the standard roller used when requiring extra drive. It also provides additional surface friction to hold product orientation.
The polyphthalamide (PPA) roller is great for high-speed, load and high temperature applications. Temperature rated up to 450°F.
The Star Roller is specially designed for the paper industry to eliminate "shingling" or "creeping" of the bottom most layers of paper when stacks are transported or accumulated on Slip-Torque® conveyors. Combined with Slip-Torque® technology, the proprietary Star Roller™ profile accomplishes non-damaging accumulation (buffering) between machines in the cut sheet paper handling process.
Shuttleworth's Standard & Specialty Rollers are ideal for a number of industries including:
