A roll quadrant conveyor for conveying strip material generally includes a plurality of support members for supporting a plurality of rolls around a quadrant roll of any desired wrapping angle and, further, a plurality of rolls journaled for rotation in the support members. The rolls are positioned on opposed sides of a conveyor centerline, with each roll positioned at an angle of less than 90.degree. with the conveyor centerline. The rolls define a chevron pattern around the wrapping angle. The strip material, in motion, is centered on the conveyor by the rolls arranged in the chevron pattern. The rolls are profiled rolls.
