THE VALUE OF HIGH-QUALITY ROLL REFURBISHMENT
ANDRITZ Fabrics and Rolls also provides comprehensive roll refurbishment services that include a full range of roll-related repairs and upgrades—complete suction roll and suction box repairs and overhauls; vibration analysis; optical and laser alignment; bearing, journal, and housing inspections and repairs; and much more. In short, this means that customers can send in their used rolls that are old, damaged, corroded, or simply worn out and receive a reconditioned roll, and new customized cover, which will often perform better than the original.
FUTURE BENEFITS AND OPTIMIZATION
As separate entities, both ANDRITZ and Xerium were industry leaders. Xerium introduced the first rubber, polyurethane, and SMART technology roll covers to the market and pioneered the development of the spreader roll industry. Today, ANDRITZ Fabrics and Rolls is making it easier for customers to improve their operations by delivering critical insights that help achieve new performance goals in output, quality, efficiency, and profitability. Looking forward, the research and development of enhanced rolls technology, new chemical compounds, and next generation SMART components will advance the level of real-time detail and type of actionable data available to operators, which will help customers achieve increasingly aggressive operational goals and realize next-level performance.
