Rolcon manufactures tapered conveyor rollers to transport goods and materials around 45-, 90- and 180-degree turns without slowing your operations. These rollers are available in a range of standard and custom sizes to support material handling requirements in various industries.

About Tapered Rollers

Tapered rollers have an outer diameter that is larger than the innermost diameter of the metal tube. The most common size for a tapered conveyor roller is 2 1/2” diameter on the large end, which tapers down to a 1 5/8” diameter on the narrow end.  Many other diameters are available.

Tapered rollers are manufactured in standard turn and custom radius configurations to create a suitable taper. These rollers are used in a conveyor system’s curved sections to maintain the transported material’s position as its path turns. Installing true tapered conveyor rollers delivers directionally stable package handling without using sideboards.


Every facility’s conveyor system and material handling needs are different. Since the items you move and other factors affect which tapered conveyor rollers suit your requirements, Rolcon has the expertise and resources to make highly customizable rollers for your applications. Purchasing parts that meet your precise specifications can reduce overhead costs and extend your conveyor system’s life.
