Recovering of Rollers for the Packaging Industry

Precision Rollers
Precision Rollers

A customer in the packaging industry was in need of an obsolete wrapping and sealing roller for one of their main lines. No prints, drawings, sketches, or specifications of any kind where available, all that we had to work with was the customers last unused roller.

Through careful analysis and precision measuring we were able to recreate the design and include enhancements. The finished roller was composed of brass with a custom formulated polyurethane coating, with an outside diameter of 2.007. With our cylindrical roll grinding equipment we met tolerances to ±.001”. The final reverse engineered product featured a higher quality covering, tighter tolerance dimensions, and a paper trail which allows for repeatability. Our reverse engineering service saved this client thousands of dollars, and as result they have become a repeat customer.
