Industrial rubber rollers are efficient, economical, and easily customized with materials that offer the properties you need in your manufacturing process. Rubber is elastic and forgiving, which offers protection for the products it handles, as well as for the roller core. Where a metal roller can be scratched, dented, and cracked in the course of operations and material handling, the elasticity of rubber rollers mitigates the risk of damage. It offers both cushioning and structure, allowing it to handle delicate materials like paper or fine textiles. When rubber does become damaged or worn out, it’s easier and less expensive to repair than metal or various fiber-reinforced composites.
In roller applications, rubber offers many advantages:
