Low efficiency in production

Bad rollers make all the difference.


Sometimes it’s wondering why your scrap ratio or machine downtime is higher than it should be.
Sometimes it’s as easy as visibly seeing the rubber fail in your production process.
  • Sometimes it isn’t as obvious.

Let me tell you a story about how Alrol’s unique expertise helped identify and solved extended machine downtime and short life of rollers.

A new customer who had found Alrol from our website approached me. Since the company is nearby, the roller was brought to us and the Director of Operations asked me what the reason for all these ‘cuts’ on the rubber surface would be.
Since 2003, Alrol of America has seen similar issues with many of our customers’ rollers. Though in a conversation where I asked a series of questions I determined the root cause of this issue. 
  • In that conversation I got to know the company’s situation better.
  • Their OEM from overseas sold them rollers with a covering which is chemically attacked by a process agent the company uses.
Once discussing these issues with the Alrol Team, we came up with switching to a rubber material which resists the chemicals used in the production process.

A process agent chemically destroyed that rubber covering. 

Are your rollers just not performing well?
