Issue: We are continually approached by
customers in a variety of industries that are seeking more economical solutions
to replacing worn out rubber covered rollers.
Most find that the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) require them to
purchase completely new rolls, core and all, even though the metal core is not
damaged only the rubber covering is worn. Others find that while they can return
cores for recovering, the OEM has a limited range of materials available to them
which may not provide the most optimal wear given the specific environment under
which the rollers are being exposed.
Finally, we have been told of instances where cores identified by the customer for specific equipment are returned for recoating but the OEM or it's designee do not specifically identify cores to customers. In these instances someone
else's cores are being returned to the customer, and may not work properly in the equipment.
Objective: One of our more popular services is "Strip, Recoat and Grind". In cases where our customer has a functional core, we can save them time and money by simply replacing the rubber covering to their exact specifications.
