Industry Information

Drive Rollers

Drive rollers are used to facilitate movement to various machine parts or systems. As a result, drive rollers are essential to many industrial manufacturing processes, but they are most commonly used in conveyor systems such as the primary motion component in conveyor roller systems or for additional support in chain and belt conveyor systems.

Industries that require the use of drive rollers include automotive manufacturing, for use in timing belts and other power transmission applications; healthcare, for imaging equipment such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized axial tomography (CAT) scans; mining, for bulk material handling applications; office equipment design, for machinery such as printers and scanners; and lumber, in equipment such as plywood machinery, which is used to turn logs and peel the wood. Additional industries that benefit from drive rollers include construction, food and beverage, packaging, chemical processing and more. Able to be motorized or manual, drive rollers are often manufactured from materials such as polyurethane (PU), vulcanized rubber and silicone rubber. Different styles of drive rollers are manufactured for varying applications, and differences include varying load carrying capabilities, surface area design and material strength.

Drive rollers are typically manufactured through molding processes - either injection or compression. When formed using the injection molding process, small pieces of rubber are heated to a molten state and then injected into the mold cavity. Water is run over the mold in order to cool it and form the roller. When formed during compression molding, the rubber is again heated to a molten state, but instead of being injected into the mold, the material is placed into an open, heated mold. Next, extreme pressure is applied by closing the mold by means of a top force or a plug member. The resulting pressure pushes the molten rubber against the walls of the mold, and both heat and pressure are maintained until the roller is cured and fully formed. Drive rollers may have a grooved or altered surface area in order to better fit certain applications. In some instances, this surface area design is achieved by knurling. Knurling is a forming process, typically done on a lathe, which is used to create a rough patterned texture on the surface of a metal or rubber in order to provide grip or enhanced aesthetics. In addition to altered surface areas, drive rollers differ from other types of rubber rollers in that they have integral shafts with a keyway that allows sprockets or gears to run the roller.
