SELF-CONTAINED BEARINGS MAKE LIGHT WORK OF CONVEYOR ROLLERS

MRT Australia has released an all-new self-contained light-duty bearing system that offers major advantages to anyone wishing to use or build a light-duty conveyor roller.

Being self-contained, they do not require machining, axle preparation or the associated assembly processes that a roller would normally require. This makes them very suitable for machine builders wanting to make their own rollers for their own applications or conveyors.

Creating a roller is a simple process: just cut a suitable tube to length, and then push a self-contained bearing capsule into each end.

The dual race bearing is enclosed within the housing, and the short stub axle forms an integral part of the bearing capsule.

Using this method, users can make any rollers of any size or quantity at will, and if suitable tubes are not to hand, MRT Australia carries extensive stocks of tubes from 20 to 50mm diameter.
