Roller Supports

Dynamic Roller Supports for Your Shop

We often think of tools like saws and blades as the essentials to spend money on to ensure easy projects. Roller supports aren’t as flashy, but they are essential to the process of each project going smoothly. Roller supports are free to rotate and translate along the surface upon which the roller rests. The surface can be horizontal, vertical, or sloped at any angle. The resulting reaction force is always a single force that is perpendicular to, and away from, the surface. Roller supports are commonly located at one end of long bridges.

This allows the bridge structure to expand and contract with temperature changes. The expansion forces could fracture the supports at the banks if the bridge structure was "locked" in place. Roller supports can also take the form of rubber bearings, rockers, or a set of gears which are designed to allow a limited amount of lateral movement.

No Slippage, No Stress with these Roller Supports

While some stands are simple and more vertical, HTC roller tables feature durable, adjustable wedge-shaped support legs that prevent slipping, and can also handle loads up to 500 lbs. Designed like a more stereotypical table, HTC roller tables feature four adjustable, non-skid rubber leveling feet and galvanized steel ball bearing rollers that make moving stock through the cut easier than you ever thought possible. Some, like the Vee roller stand, feature more dynamic designs.

Shaped as a super duty "V",  the Vee roller stand support is designed to capture round or unusually shaped items which require infeed/outfeed or general support. The goal with these state of the art HTC roller supports is to ensure things do not slip out of place while you’re using them. It’s dangerous to both the equipment and the user if things are not set in place, which means a solid roller support might be the difference between your next project being a struggle and being a success.
