Webex Carbon Steel Idlers have the strength to withstand substantial loading from nips or web tension. They also perform well in elevated temperatures up to 350ºF. The DOM tubing of our steel idlers resists nicks and deformation. And when compared to similar sized aluminum rolls, steel idlers are less expensive.

For economy, strength, and high performance, nothing beats a Webex standard dead shaft steel idler.
