Recovered Rubber Rollers

Maintenance means keeping machinery running at peak efficiency. Working with J.J. Short can be the perfect complement to your maintenance programs. You no longer have to work around the original equipment manufacturer's limited stock designs or bear the cost of complete roller or core replacement.

Laminator Rollers


Before working with us, many of our customers either disposed of their used, worn out rolls and bore the expense of ordering completely new parts, core and all from the OEM. In most cases, the body of your roll or metal core is fine, only the rubber was worn. Still other customers shipped their old rollers back to the OEM for recoating but with no guarantee that the same cores they returned would be returned to them.

A big part of our roller business is "Strip, Recover & Grind". J.J. Short is an expert at providing prompt service in this area. Send us your old, worn part! If you are unsure of the covering let us test and identify it for you. Silicone, Urethane, Neoprene, EPDM, Nitrile and Natural Rubber are our more popular coverings. 

Journals/cores are inspected and if needed repaired with your approval. Recoating your cores with high quality coverings and finishing to your exact specifications - all within your timeline, is our mantra.

Sometimes a roller is perfectly reusable and does not even need to be completely recovered. The existing covering may only need to be built up or simply reground to provide a new operating surface.  This service is very cost effective  to our customers as well. Increased overall service life for your rubber covered rollers and cores puts extra dollars back in your maintenance budget.  With J.J. Short working with you, your used roller becomes a "like new" roller at a reduced cost and at a delivery time you specify.
