Whether you are looking for one roll, ten rolls, or hundreds of rolls, ISI can offer you quality products at lower costs. To save time we manufacture in the USA. For lower costs and value, we manufacture in Asia. ISI uses the highest quality materials. Our rolls are manufactured to meet your exact drawing requirements and specifications.

ISI currently supplies rollers to USA roller manufacturers and OEM’s. Your local supplier can easily be our middleman. Buy direct and save.

If you are the end-user, ISI can also fulfill your requirements with our hands-on approach.

ISI can provide a wide variety of roll sizes:  Small diameter rolls, for machines like printers and labelers, to long length and large diameter rolls for industries like Polyethylene Terephtalate (PET) and BOPP (Biaxially Oriented PolyPropylene) plastic manufacturing.

All our rolls are custom manufactured to your specifications. At ISI we have experience serving the warehousing, aerospace, distribution, automobile, and other industries.

Many of our customers find that is less costly to purchase a completely new roll, (body and rubber cover) from ISI, than to have their existing ones recovered at the current supplier.

Industrial rollers are often used in conveyor operations to direct raw materials, partial components, and finished goods from one production operation to another within a facility. Rollers are also used to form and shape materials, spread coatings, laminate products, and clean equipment and product surfaces. 

Integrated Solutions manufactures and distributes a wide variety of quality rolls to our customers in industrial settings.

Rubber Rollers

A rubber roller consists of a cylindrical tube or shaft enclosed in a layer of rubber material. The inner core is typically composed of a strong material like steel or aluminum. The outer layer of a rubber roller can be smooth or textured to enhance grip. Rubber-covered rolls have many industrial applications, including smoothing paper and plastic, applying and spreading coatings, texturizing rubber rolls, reducing friction heat, and preventing conveyor slippage. Rubber rolls are a cost-effective solution due to their durability and unique physical properties.

Types of Rubber Rollers

Rubber rollers are available in an assortment of designs and configurations to meet the needs of unique applications. The most common types of rubber rollers are: 

    • Ink and Printing Rollers: Printing rollers apply writing, figures, images, and designs onto paper and substrates using ink or paint.
    • Laminating Rollers: Laminating rollers apply laminate materials to substrates. The tolerances on these rollers are usually much tighter. 
    • Drive Rollers: Drive rollers are used to transport materials from one location to another using a series of rollers. 
    • Guides/Idler Rollers: Idler rollers support and guide roller and conveyor systems by facilitating smooth, continuous motion.
    • Grooved Rollers: Straight groves can be used to allow air to pass through, or allow wires or ropes to be installed to keep material from wrapping on the rollers
    • Spreader Rollers: Spreader rollers are V or U grooved,starting from the center of the roll.  Designed specifically for spreading and smoothing applications.  Allowing wrinkles to be spread out as the material is rolled over the roller.
    • Conveyor Rollers: Conveyor rollers are used to transport materials from one location to another on a motorized, mechanical, or manual conveyor system.
    • Live Shaft Rollers: Live shaft rollers feature external bearings. Ideal for use in heavy load-bearing applications and harsh conditions. The shaft and entire roll rotate together on external bearings.
    • Dead Shaft Rollers: Dead shaft rollers use internal bearings which allow the roller to spin around the stationary center shaft. With a dead shaft idler, bearings are installed in each end of the roller body and the shaft passes through the body of the roll.  The shaft is mounted to the framework of a machine and the roll body rotates around the fixed shaft. The shaft does not rotate so it is called a dead shaft.
    • Cleaning Rollers: Cleaning rollers are designed to perform highly specialized cleaning operations to remove contaminants such as dust, dirt, debris, and liquids. 
    • Stinger Rollers: Stinger rollers are dead shaft rollers engineered for marine applications. 
    • Urethane/Polyurethane Rollers: Composed of polyurethane, these rollers are cost-efficient, shock resistant, elastic, and strong. 
    • EPDM Rollers: EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rollers are made with a synthetic rubber made up of ethylene, propylene, and diene monomers. EPDM rollers  have a higher resistance to heat, oxidation, corrosion, and harsh weather conditions than Neoprene. 
    • Industrial Rubber Rollers: Industrial rubber rollers are designed for use in industrial and manufacturing operations. 
  • Nip Rollers: Also called pinch or laminated rollers, nip rollers are used to press several sheets of material together, ultimately forming a laminated product.

Rubber Roller Materials

Rubber rollers are versatile and are manufactured from a range of rubber materials that each have benefits and detriments depending on the application, including: 

  • Neoprene: Neoprene is a chemically stable synthetic rubber that is resistant to compression and maintains flexibility in a wide range of temperatures. Neoprene is the most common material for rubber rollers and is used on a variety of roller types including nip rollers and conveyor rollers. Neoprene rollers are commonly found in conveyor systems and printing equipment.
  • Neoprene plus polyvinyl chloride (PVC): Adds a higher degree of wear resistance than straight neoprene. This combination is commonly used in printing and building applications.
  • Silicone Rubber: Silicone rubber is extremely temperature resistant, and has non-stick properties that make it ideal for rollers. Applications include coating, laminating, and extrusion.
  • RTV: Room-temperature-vulcanizing (RTV) silicone is a compound that is applied as a liquid and cures at room temperature into a flexible rubber material. RTV silicone is commonly used in the aircraft and aerospace industries.
  • Urethane: Urethane, or polyurethane, is highly durable with excellent chemical and wear resistance. These types of rollers are commonly used for material processing in the sheet metal industry.
  • Hypalon: Hypalon® is a high-performance synthetic rubber that exhibits high electrical, chemical, thermal, and abrasion resistance. Used in coating, laminating, converting, embossing, and extrusion applications. 
  • EPDM: Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is relatively inexpensive and resistant to chemicals, ozone, and temperature fluctuations. Common uses include coating, flexo printing, and laminating applications.
  • PVC:  Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a thermoplastic material which can be melted down at high temperatures, molded, and cooled again to solid form. PVC can be rigid or flexible.  It is strong, lightweight, and durable. This material can be used in wash-down applications and has a sanitary design, making it well suited for the food and beverage and agriculture industries.

Steel Rolls, Steel Mill Rolls, and Aluminum Rolls at ISI

Integrated Solutions offers an extensive selection of steel and steel alloy rolls, steel mill rolls, and aluminum idlers for use in a variety of industrial applications. These include:

Steel and Steel Alloy Rolls

Our industrial steel rollers and steel alloy rolls are designed to facilitate the movement of heavy materials and components. They are engineered to carry large loads with moderate propelling force. Our steel and steel alloy rolls are available in chrome, hard chrome, and flash chrome finishes. 

Steel Mill Rolls

Integrated Solutions’ steel mill rolls are engineered to reduce the thickness of metal stock to create smooth, seamless, and uniform sheet metal that meets even the most stringent specifications. This quality makes them well suited for applications such as conveyor systems. Steel mill rolls can also endure extreme temperatures, making them a versatile option.

Aluminum Idlers

Our quality aluminum idlers are ideal for use in low-tension, low-volume web guide applications. They come in with or without shaft bearings and can be clear or hard anodized. Aluminum idlers can be used in a variety of applications because they maintain high performance while being nearly half the weight of steel.
