Functional intake systems are essential for successful VRC teams, but are unreliable due to limitations posed by available parts. VEX intake rollers only come in one size, and conveyor-belt base links easily break. Therefore, we created the Onion Roller, a three-layered roller that is compatible with conveyor-belt inserts and adjustable in size. The Onion Roller eliminates the need for VEX intake rollers and fragile links, making intake mechanisms simple to construct and reliable.
