Molded Rubber Roller Bonded to Steel Tube


  • Molded Rubber Roller Bonded to Steel Tube Ref: 105398

    Custom Rubber Roller
    Pictured here is a very special product developed for the agricultural seed germination process. The six inch long roller's fins are optimized in height, width, and frequency so that when a film is run over the roller, grooves are worked into the film. The grooves are then filled with a row of seeds that germinate under specially controlled conditions.

    The part requires a special rubber formula that includes only FDA approved ingredients, and the rubber is bonded to a steel sleeve that hold the roller bearings. The low durometer of the material (20 on the Shore A scale) requires special processing techniques to insure proper flow and bonding of the insert, without discoloration.

    The molded rubber parts pictured are not in stock or for sale. These are examples of custom-manufactured products that illustrate Custom Rubber Corp.'s capabilities.
