Omni’s Tapered Rollers are manufactured for many different applications. True Taper Rollers create a consistent product orientation on a curve. This is usually preferred for applications that require products to not be skewed such as parts assembly, bar code scanner, packaging lines, and sorter lines.
Omni is one of the few material handling suppliers that can provide the True Taper Roller for your curve based on the frame radius and between frame dimensions. In addition, we also offer sizes that are typical industry standards.
The drawings below depict the difference between a true taper and an industry standard curve. The drawing on the left depicts when the taper rate is true for a given curve the product will maintain its orientation around the curve. As seen in the drawing on the right, if the taper rate is not true for a given curve then the product will become skewed around the curve.
For more information on tapered rollers reference the Roller Manual.
