Carbon fiber idler roller is unmatched for their combined qualities of strength and low weight – only a third of the weight of a comparable standard aluminum idler with 1.2 times the load bearing capacity. These high performance idlers use carbon fiber composite tubing for the roll shell. A special steel stub-shaft and lightweight aluminum headers keep total roll weight to a minimum.
1. Low rotational inertia/momentum
2. High stiffness/low vibration
3. Less power required to run
4. Reduced roller weight allowing for smaller lower friction (and maintenance) bearings
5. Faster line speeds

These remarkable idlers are ideal for running wider, lighter weight webs at higher critical speeds. Inertia ratings are the lowest of any roller on the market.
