Epoch lightweight aluminum idlers have less weight and less rolling inertia than standard aluminum idlers.

These idlers are dynamically balanced to ISO grade G6.3 and has a 32 RMS surface finish across the face. If a hard surface is required to prevent wear, hard anodizing is available upon request.



  • Lower rotating inertia than comparable standard aluminum idlers 
  • Economic and lightweight
  • Natural corrosion resistance
  • Easy to custom coat and surface treat 
Dead Shaft

"Dead shaft" idler rollers have a bearing in the idler roll body and therefore the dead shaft (axle) remains stationary. The shaft is fixed to the machine frame in various manners.
