Metric Conveyor Wheels
In 1937 FRANTZ began to produce conveyor wheels for the material handling industry. We supplied conveyor wheels to our military during World War II. We know wheels. Our wide selection and variety is without peer in the industry. FRANTZ conveyor wheels are designed and manufactured in Sterling IL, USA and built with metric dimensions for international customers and applications. FRANTZ performance tested conveyor wheel models are a simply better product to match your gravity conveyor need.

This is our Metric Conveyor Wheel value to you:
  • Load Rating Options
    FRANTZ Metric Conveyor Wheels are engineered to meet or exceed the CEMA standard of 1M revs at the stated load rating. Click for Technical Information on Load Ratings. Our Metric Conveyor Wheels are rigorously tested by our engineering staff on custom designed life/load test equipment to provide you with a “peace of mind” quality product that will perform to your expectation. Metric Conveyor Wheel load ratings range from 23kg to 91kg.

  • Stainless Steel or Aluminum
    We offer Metric Conveyor Wheel models constructed of materials that meet your outdoor, wash down, corrosive, or food processing environment needs. Click for information about Stainless Steel Conveyor Wheels.

  • Sterling Armor®
    For applications where corrosion is an issue, FRANTZ offers Sterling Armor®; a special heat treating process that changes the physical microstructure within the steel surface to provide corrosion protection superior or equivalent to stainless steel in most environments. Finishes include gloss black or dull patina. Sterling Armor® is a cost effective solution to your wheel corrosion challenges in outdoor, wash down, and corrosive environments.

  • Tortoise Shell® tough tread
    FRANTZ 68kg and 91kg Metric Conveyor Wheels are Tortoise Shell® designed to outperform under abusive conditions and last longer than economy models. Additionally, FRANTZ engineers have uniquely designed outer shells and inner races to form a labyrinth shield that protects the ball complement and prevents ingress of foreign matter into the rolling elements resulting in longer life for your wheels. We even offer a Tortoise Shell® conveyor wheel with seals for further protection from outside elements. FRANTZ® Tortoise Shell® products will last longer and lower the lifetime cost of your gravity conveyor.

  • Lubrication
    All FRANTZ Metric Conveyor Wheels can be ordered oiled, greased, or dry. The application and the environment surrounding it determine the optimal selection. Lubrication is important when considering contamination and ease of rolling issues. Contact our Customer Service Representatives for recommendations on Metric Conveyor Wheel lubrication.
