Chain Driven Conveyor Rollers

Rollers for Chain Driven Conveyors

With the popularity of automation, we require more and more automated transportation from one side to the other side, sprocket roller conveyors are the most popular type, especially in transporting some heavy workpieces. A sprocket roller conveyor is safer and more reliable when the workpiece is heavy. The chain-driven roller conveyor design is also the most common type used by users.

No matter which industry are you in, we can provide you with a proper solution when we design the roller conveying line, the workpiece will move more steadily if the roller center distance is small.

Normally we request the workpiece need to touch 3 rollers at any time. If the loading is heavier, need to use a bigger roller and mire thick roller pipe. Also, need to consider whether the roller is higher than the main beam or not when we use a driven sprocket roller.

The chain drive conveyor roller can be assembled in many forms in the conveyor system.
