Company adds grinding, chrome plating capabilities for converters.
Menges Roller is adding precision cylindrical grinding services and chrome plating services to converting companies. These new re-grinding and re-chroming services being will help converters maintain their product quality cost effectively. Because most of the time chromed rollers tend to be expensive chill rolls or heat-transfer rolls (double-shelled & liquid-filled), replacing these rollers can be quite costly. Converting Managers are usually happy to find they can be refinished for a fraction of the cost of replacement.
Few roller companies offer precision cylindrical grinding and re-chroming. However, Menges Roller Company has invested heavily in computer controlled outside diameter finishing machines which are capable of achieving diameter tolerances within one one-thousandth of an inch.
For most converting operations, rollers must have very exact dimensions to function properly. With over 40 years of experience, Menges can remove the old finish and apply new chrome, all while delivering exact diameters.
