Polyurethane Idler Rollers

ML6 Polyurethane Idler Rollers

Precision Polyurethane Idler Rollers

Meridian Laboratory ML6 precision polyurethane idler rollers can serve as guides, tensioning wheels, or in any application which requires a roller to spin freely on a shaft.  Precision polyurethane ML6 is bonded to an SAE 841 oil-impregnated bronze sleeve bushing, and is ideal for lighter duty applications with low to moderate speeds.  For high speed or heavier duty applications, see our complete line of ML6 precision polyurethane coated bearings.

Custom sizes and profiles are available very affordably, with turnaround times in as little as 5 days.

ML6 polyurethane idler rollers are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and durometers to meet any of your most demanding requirements.
