The Importance of Precision Rollers for Factory Automation

While it’s easy to think “it’s just a roller”, it’s even easier to lose sight of how much you ask of your rollers and wheels, day in and day out. Keeping your operations running with a minimum of downtime for machine repairs, feed jams, or other time wasters (and money costers) means upgrading to superior components for your application. If you expect, and demand that your equipment do more, ML6 offers a proven upgrade you’ll notice immediately.
Take a look at the short video below to see one (of many) very simple reasons a more durable, precision roller can have a huge impact on your manufacturing environment.



  • All tolerances guaranteed within 0.001” or better
  • Meridian Laboratory works directly with raw ingredient manufacturers to deliver a finished product, specifically tailored for manufacturing and industrial processes and applications
  • Longer lasting over conventional ground urethane compounds and manufacturing techniques
  • Non-marking surface great for converting and material handling and assembly applications

    I have work with Meridian Labs for many years. I started a new job and needed to have some pulleys covered with urethane for a very important piece of equipment. Vance came through and got the pulleys done in a few days. We machined … More a V-Groove in the urethane and got our equipment in full operation. I could not have done it with out their help. Best quality, fair pricing and a company you can count on.

    We ordered some custom urethane rollers to use as encoder wheels. They have gone way beyond our expectations to make sure our parts were correct and meeting our needs. Meridian Laboratory makes quality products and are extremely knowledgeable. … More They are a trusted resource for us.

    I purchased some hubbed rollers for a personal project I am working on. The sales team was VERY helpful and provided me with a sample kit which guided me to the right roller for my application. The rollers I received were really good quality … More and worked perfectly for what I needed. Would definitely recommend if you need polyurethane rollers for any projects.

    Worked with Vance on getting some rollers for an application of ours. He is very knowledgeable and was able to get the rollers for my company in a timely manner. Had an issue with one of the rollers and he replaced it for free! I am … More sure they took that roller apart and studied why it was rolling "rough". I really appreciate the time, the quick response, and how things were handled. Thank you Vance!
