Sandvik FactoryConveyor rollers are a key component in the conveyor system. We represent Sandvik conveyor rollers in Ireland (formerly Gurtec) who manufacture the highest quality rollers from their high-tech factory in Germany. Sandvik have studied every aspect of the conveyor roller and have optimized their design for reliability and efficiency. Sandvik have custom designed the all of the main components including the bearing, seals and bearing housings to produce a roller with low rolling resistance, excellent sealing protection and optimized loading of the bearing. Working together these features produce a roller which can stand up to even the toughest of environments.

This development is continuous and has lead to several developments in the roller industry. Sandvik has pioneered innovations such as powder coated rollers, single piece formed metal rollers and mass production techniques which see a roller come off the production line every 9 seconds.

Quality is key to everything Sandvik produce and is continuously checked via an extensive testing facility. Here samples can be tested for dust and water intake, rolling resistance, axial load, trueness of balance, sound emissions and dimensional checks ensuring standards are maintained through large production runs.

Sandvik Rollers feature the following:-

  • Custom designed bearing, optimized for use in idler rollers
  • In-house produced Multiple Labyrinth sealing with an option of additional lip seal
  • Powder coated finish providing protection against corrosion
  • Deep Pressed bearing housing, designed to minimise deflection on the bearing.
  • Low rolling resistance, reducing energy requirements
  • Low sound emissions, providing a better working environment
