Menges Roller expands capacity

Menges Roller, an industrial roller manufacturer for the film and sheet industry, has extended its size capacity and technical capabilities with the purchase of a new machine. The machine gives Menges the ability to handle rollers up to 10 meters (approx. 33 feet). 

Menges says that for plastic film and sheet manufacturers, industrial rollers can have a huge impact on a plant's output and quality. The company expanded the size of its roller building capacity as a reaction to many of its customer increasing the width of their stock. Industrial rollers used in plastic and paper plants require very exact diameter specifications and surface finishes - potentially having a big impact on a packaging plant's output and quality, the company stated.

"Film and sheet plants rely on rollers that perform at a very high level, and that's what Menges Roller offers."

Exact outside diameter modifications can be made with this machine, including the formation of parabolic crowns and reverse crowns - in increments as small as a thousandth of an inch. The new machine utilizes the very latest computer interface and CNC technology to mill rollers made by Menges Roller.

This capacity expansion is part of Menges Roller's rubber division, which offers dozens of rollcover compounds. Rollers from Menges are typically purchased by plastic film converters, and used in laminating lines, film and sheet cooling lines, cutting and slitting lines, etc.
