Menges Roller expands rubber roller capabilities

August 14, 2014 - Menges Roller has extended the size capacity and technical capabilities of its Rubber Roller Division with the purchase of a large new machine.  

The new unit gives Menges the ability to handle rollers as long as 10 m (approx. 33 ft.). The machine utilizes the very latest computer interface and CNC technology to form precision groove patterns into rollcovers made from rubber, silicone, urethane and other synthetic compounds. Very precise outside diameter modifications can also be made with this machine, including the formation of parabolic crowns & revers crowns as small as a thousandth of an inch.

Matthew Menges, President of Menges Roller explained the investment, “We’re serving slitters, picklers and even stainless polishers…and most have very specific roller requirements…specific grooves or a very exact OD or parabolic crown. This new machine helps us create these profiles, efficiently and accurately. Investments like this help Menges Roller run more efficiently, and we pass those savings on to our customers.”

This capacity expansion is part of Menges Roller’s Rubber Division, which offers dozens of rollcover compounds and an infinite number of finishing options. For example, Menges makes rollers with abrasion-resistant urethane rollcovers (a favorite among steel & aluminum processors), EPDM-covered rollers with chevron grooves (contact rollers for moving coil through the system), and guide rollers with parabolic and reverse-parabolic crowns…just to name a few roller types. This new machine will improve the quality of all these roller formats.
