Conveyor Rollers

MRT provides conveyor rollers to suit your exact requirements. We offer higher quality and greater range, which translates into higher performance and greater reliability – and fantastic roi.

If you’re interested in performance and reliability, quiet, smooth running and expert support, you wouldn’t go anywhere else.

MRT is a joint Australian/German partnership, bringing you the very best of European engineering backed by industry expertise that is unmatched in the Australian marketplace.

Compatibility

With more than 3000 configurations possible from our range of rollers, bearings, drives and fittings, there is very little we can’t upgrade easily and quickly – and for a competitive price.

Our rollers will slot right in to most conveyor systems, providing an immediate improvement in performance and ROI.

Range

MRT offers a broad range of rollers covering:

TUBE ROLLERS:

- Light weight polymer rollers in PVC, PP and Nylon (Standard colours include Black, Grey and Blue. Custom colours are available). Our most popular rollers feature dual race bearings, providing 4 bearing races per roller, giving unmatched reliability and load bearing capacity.

- High load steel rollers - Stainless roller options - All standard sizes and specifications

- Passive (gravity system) or driven (chain, line-shaft, synchro-belt, micro-belt etc)

POLY-DIRECTIONAL ROLLERS:

- Passive or driven (Line shaft, in primary direction only). - Barrels can be provided in a variety of materials. - Stainless Steel pins.

- Easy wash housing design.

- Low marking on cardboard or soft materials.

BALL ROLLERS:

- Steel and stainless steel options.

- Smooth running and quiet

- Compact and versatile

In addition to this, we can specify specialist materials for unique tube roller applications:

- Polymer rollers with glass ball bearings for acid environments

- Brass rollers and bearings for no-spark applications e.g. munitions

- Stainless, Nickel plated, Zinc passivated... just ask!

- High and Low Temperature applications

- Hygienic applications

DRIVE OPTIONS

MRT offers a wide range of drive options for all our rollers:

- Chain / sprocket - Synchro belt - Line-shaft

- Micro v-belt

Other options:

MRT manufactures a range of fittings for various applications:

- Conical roller modules: For bends in tube roller conveyors

- Flanges, bushes, seals etc

Quality

The quality of MRT components sets them apart from the competition, especially when the price is so competitive. Some of the outstanding features include:

- FOUR BEARING RACES: Our biggest selling range of plastic tube rollers feature dual race bearings, resulting in each roller having four bearing races. This is double what most competitors offer, for comparable prices and provides unmatched performance and reliability.

- BALL CAGES: Most of our bearing races include a cage to positively locate the balls. Another feature that most competitors don’t offer. Yet another reason our bearings are so reliable and smooth running.

- TIGHT TOLERANCES: Build tolerances are generally tighter than our competition, right across the board.

- BROACHED INNERS: Our steel rollers feature bearings with unique broached inners, which create a steel bush for much greater strength.

- PRESSED LOCATORS: Bearings in our steel rollers include a pressed ball locator in the housing providing much smoother and quieter running.

- SEALS: Additional seals can be specified, in rubber and other materials.

- TRUE TRACKING BEND ROLLERS: Our system of conical roller modules provides true tracking of boxes/totes/cartons around bends, keeping the units aligned and centred through the whole conveyor journey.
