Product Details

Dead Shaft Rollers are built with internal bearings and are designed to rotate around a stationary, dead shaft. Since only the shell rotates, this design decreases overall inertia. These rolls are often used in free turning applications, such as light films. This cost-effective idler offers low-friction bearings, increasing the life-span of the bearing itself. 

Jemmco offers the following Aluminum, Steel and Stainless Steel Dead Shaft Rollers:

  • Standard Aluminum Idlers
  • Lightweight Aluminum Idlers
  • Standard Steel Idlers
  • Standard Stainless Steel Idlers
  • Double Bearings Stub Shaft
