Capstan (Drive Roller)

Our Capstan drive rollers are the new drive system for tape recorders. The construction of Our Capstan drive roller consists of an aluminum hub with a brass inner ring forming the bearing. The outer layer of the hub is soft rubber, which pinches the tape in order to pull it. The pressure between the capstan shaft and the rubber is critical and usually calibrated at the factory. It is just enough to pull the tape, but not too much that it deforms it.

. The heart of the system consists of an electronically controlled high-slip eddy-current motor. The completely homogenous rotor drives a highly uniform torque. The capstan shaft can be coupled to the rotor directly, without requiring mechanical isolation such as a flexible coupling driving a flywheel. Speed ratios of 1:16 are possible.

Some of the Capstan Rollers available in stock include 40" Nip Roller for GEC 418, 30" Capstan Roller for Webmaster, 30" Capstan Roller Model 360, Capstan Rubber Roller, 30" Capstan Roller, 56" Solid Capstan Roller, 56" Split Capstan Roller, 41" Capstan Roller Model 108, 41" Split Capstan Roller and many more.
