ML6 polyurethane rollers and coated shafts are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and durometers (Shore Hardness) to meet any of your requirements.

Why Precision Matters

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, tuning of encoder wheels, 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.

In this short video above, discover one (of many) reasons a more durable, precision roller can have a huge impact on your manufacturing environment.
