Interroll Extends Operational Life of 1700 Series Conveyor Rollers with Taperhex Black Shaft Design

Electrically conductive technopolymer reduces noise and component wear...

WILMINGTON, NC, (October 22, 2008) -- Providing a cost-effective conveyor solution for OEMs and end-customers, Interroll now offers its 1700 Series conveyor roller with the Taperhex Black shaft design. The shaft design features an easy-to-install, double spring-loaded tapered hexagonal shuttle that is pressed into the profile holes of the roller for a secure and safe fit. The Taperhex Black is constructed of high-quality electrically conductive technopolymer that has been enhanced for superior noise reduction and wear resistance.

The Taperhex Black shaft is not susceptible to any movement relative to the profile, a problem usually associated with torsional forces induced by start/stop operations. By eliminating movement, the spring-loaded Taperhex provides a solution that reduces noise levels, component wear, and maintenance, extending the operational life of the roller.

"The spring-loaded tapered hexagonal shuttle is as secure as any bolted component, and the electrically conductive technopolymer provides a virtually maintenance-free operation," Ken Cowlin, Interroll National Director of Sales and Marketing. "The 1700 Series roller with the Taperhex shaft design is a perfect alternative to powered applications within the field of package and parcel-conveying technology, particularly areas that traditionally require tightly bolted rollers in order to minimize noise level and improve durability."

Providing a maximum speed of 360 fpm and a maximum load of 80 lbs, the 1700 Series is suitable for package and parcel conveying technology, warehouse and distribution, food processing, security, and pharmaceutical applications.
