    Carbon Fiber Idler Rollers

    carbon-fiber idle rollersDragonplate manufactures a wide variety of carbon fiber tubes useful for idler rollers. Ranging from standard modulus tubes with stiffness comparable to aluminum up to ultra high modulus tubes more rigid than steel, carbon fiber provides an ideal solution to the inertial and bending/yielding issues seen with metal rollers. At less than 1/5th the weight of steel and half the weight of aluminum, carbon fiber rollers may be the right solution for a challenging automation or conveyor application.

    Carbon Fiber Roller Advantages:

    • low rotational inertia/momentum
    • high stiffness/low vibration
    • less power required to run
    • reduced roller weight allowing for smaller lower friction (and maintenance) bearings
    • faster line speeds
