Aluminum roller extrusions from the Double E Company are available in a large number of diameters

Aluminum rollers are designed to provide low rotational inertia, with little deflection. This performance is accomplished with a unique aluminum extrusion that yields an excellent strength to weight ratio.


Live shaft models (with fixed journals) or dead shaft models (roller rotates with bearings on a fixed inner shaft) are both standard options.

Standard diameters for aluminum rollers range from 60 mm up to 200 mm, with lengths that can exceed 7000 mm. Rollers can be dynamically balanced and mechanically straightened to customer specifications, and they can be finished with various surface treatments and coatings. We offer a standard set of sizes, but custom manufacturing is possible.
