Medium Duty Belt Driven Live Roller Curve Conveyor, Roach Model 196LRC

Roach Model 196LRC, Medium Duty Belt Driven Live Roller Curve features quality tapered rollers to maintain a consistent product orientation in your application

TYPE: Belt Driven Live Roller Conveyors


Curved belt driven live roller conveyor that features tapered rollers which maintains consistent product orientation; designed for medium duty applications.


  • Tapered rollers to maintain a consistent product orientation in your application
  • Reversible
  • Provides superior package conveyance; the tapered roller presents a true conveying surface on a curve, giving the correct radial speed along the full length of each roller, thus maintaining product orientation. 


  • Typically used in shipping/receiving applications
  • Packaging handling
  • Manufacturing
  • Distribution
  • Designed to transport medium to heavy cartons
  • Often used as a slave driven unit to a Medium Duty CAM Adjusted Live Roller Conveyor (796CALR).
    When the gear motor drives the first conveyor, the slave drive option then turns the spindle of the second, moving it at the same speed as the first. This option often saves money because fewer gear motors are required for system operation. 


  • Tread Rollers: 2-1/2” dia. to 1-11/16” dia. x 14 ga. steel tapered rollers, model 254T; 1.9” dia. x 16 ga. steel straight tangent rollers, model 196S.
