An appropriate design of Support roller is significant for satisfactory performance of conveyor system. A number of Support rollers and return rollers are used in conveyor system so that the excess weight of the Support roller affects the total weight of system and also enhances the power consumption. Excess material used in conveyor system does not add any values in the performance on the contrary it reduces energy efficiency and increases manufacturing cost. It is notable to decrease power consumption and manufacturing cost of material handling sector. So that, in this paper we intended to reduce weight of Support roller to increase energy efficiency of conveyor system with reduction in material cost by weight optimization of roller.
