there is new technology for the bearing assembly in the idlers.individual bearings are fitted in the cartridge and cartridge is fitted over the shaft- this process has significantly increased the accuray of idler assembly and has reduced the friction factor as well.

looking forward to more information on this new process.

If such things have developed, I would also like to know. However it seems such arrangement can mostly be feasible in small diameter idlers and for certain type of duty / application.

The below idler manufacturer has developed a cartridge type bearing and seal arrangement years ago.

I believe the product you are indicating is one produced by Edwin Lowe in the UK.

The sub-assembly comprises end-cap(bearing housing) bearing and seals which is welded directly into the shell in this assembled form.
