Conveyor Belts & Custom Plastic Extrusion

Custom plastic extrusion plays a crucial role in creating conveyor belt roller covers. It does this by providing the ability to produce tailored components that perfectly fit the specifications and requirements of the conveyor system. 

Let’s take a look at the main reasons custom plastic extrusion is so helpful when it comes to making conveyor belt components.

Material Selection

Custom plastic extrusion allows for the selection of specific materials suited for conveyor belt roller covers. These materials are chosen based on factors such as durability, wear resistance, chemical resistance, and flexibility.

Design Flexibility

With custom plastic extrusion, manufacturers can design conveyor belt roller covers with precise dimensions and features to meet the needs of the application. This includes factors like roller diameter, thickness, surface replace with finish texture, and any additional features required for efficient conveyor operation.


Extrusion processes can often be more cost-effective than other manufacturing methods for producing conveyor belt roller covers, especially when producing large quantities or specialized designs. The ability to create custom replace with die molds reduces waste and ensures optimal material usage.


Extrusion processes offer high levels of consistency and repeatability, ensuring uniformity across all roller covers produced. This is essential for maintaining smooth conveyor operation and minimizing wear on the conveyor belt.

Quality Control

Manufacturers can implement rigorous quality control measures during the extrusion process to ensure that each conveyor belt roller cover meets the required standards for performance and durability.
