Case Study: How Round is Your Roller?

A manufacturer of extruded plastic asked us to analyze a roll from another supplier

They know that the profile shape of their coating rolls has a direct impact on the quality of what they produce. And they know that rolls out of spec can increase their costs by wasting coating. So they wanted a better understanding of the geometry of the incoming roll.

We used our Tru-Shape2™ optical micrometer, non-contact measuring system to analyze the roll and generate objective data for their review.

Our report showed the facts, and spotlighted issues with putting the roll into production.

You can read the 2+ page summary report and see additional details (without specific references to the other companies involved).

If you want to know the true shape of rolls coming into your factory before you put them into service, please contact us.
