CF Carbon Fiber Dead Shaft Idler Rolls

  • High strength and low weight
  •  Runs wider webs at higher critical speeds
  •  Higher load capacity than comparable aluminum idlers
  •  Lowest inertia ratings of any Webex idler
  •  Non-corrosive
  •  Superior tension control
  •  Electrically conductive

Webex Carbon Fiber Idlers are unmatched for their combined qualities of strength and low weight - only a third of the weight of a comparable standard aluminum idler with greater 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.

These remarkable idlers are ideal for running wider, lighter weight webs at higher critical speeds. Inertia ratings are the lowest of any Webex roller on the market. Best of all, you can specify them now as a Webex standard - saving you the expense of a custom carbon composite idler.
