Roll Recovery Service
Rollers are used in a large array of industries and are often impossible to find or extremely expensive to replace. Acrotech Inc. has been helping customers with their roller recovery for decades and is a large part of our very successful business. We are able to in most cases make your existing rollers better than new. To achieve this we go through a rigorous process to ensure that the rollers are treated correctly so that our premium K-Prene® polyurethane is applied and adhered correctly. Our process allows us to get the dimensions exactly as they should be for your application. In some cases we can improve the way your machinery handles by altering the durometer or hardness of the urethane to suit your application or material that you are handling. Some customers have noted the significant improvement in operations once the rollers were treated with urethane. If we find that your rollers are completely worn out, no longer true or warped we can machine new ones and recover with urethane so they are back to where you started. This truly is the most economical way to get your operation back with the rollers that are needed for the job.
