A One-Stop-Shop for Replacement Rollers

It can be very expensive to replace old industrial machines, and sometimes it’s hard to justify the cost when a relatively small part of the equipment isn’t functioning correctly. The problem is that it can also be very difficult to find replacement parts for old equipment. After just a few years, machines that were once state-of-the-art are replaced by the latest technology, and companies gradually stop making replacement parts for maintenance on older models. If the machinery that your business uses relies on rollers to be fully functional, what do you do if you can’t find the right ones when the old ones wear out? Well, it’s simpler than you might imagine. Here at Western Roller Corporation, we have a huge inventory of replacement orders. If one of our standard sizes doesn’t fit your equipment, we can take your specifications and design one for you!

Using high grade polyurethane material, we will create replacement rollers that fit your equipment perfectly. The quality of our products ensures that they will perform well in your application and remain durable for years to come. We can also insert custom-sized bearings or bushings into the center of your roller for mounting. Rather than ordering a new machine, all you have to do is switch out a few old rollers! We will promptly ship your order directly to your facility so that you don’t have to waste time tracking down the right parts or figuring out what you are going to do next.

Helping You Get the Job Done With Quality Super Feed Rollers

A feed roller is used to pull paper, sheet metal or other flat materials through a machine. The wheel is mounted on a hub at the center of its diameter that is connected to an external motor. The motor is what powers the wheel and causes rotation in one direction or another to take place. Feed rotors are usually mounted in a set to help create more friction and do a better job of pulling materials along. The wheels are usually placed over top of the material while some type of flat surface is directly underneath.

At Western Roller, our line of Super Feeder rollers is made to fit over 150 different feeder models in case you need replacement parts for your equipment. The rollers are made out of a urethane compound to ensure that they are tough and durable throughout their lifetime.

The strengths of our various feed rollers can be identified by their color. Our yellow super feed tires are recommended for feeding solid wood pieces. Our blue 50 Duro rollers are designed to handle products with slick surface materials like laminates. Besides our various feed rollers, we also supply many industries with feed belts. A single belt fits around a series of metal wheels on the feeder and are made using high grade plastic or rubber with notches in the belt. A feed belt provides great control for short pieces in a feeder.
