Why Choose MGF Services & Equipment

When you choose MGF for your project, you get a partner who is invested in your success with the following approach:

  • We recover and upgrade existing equipment whenever possible to save on costs
  • We provide ongoing parts, maintenance, and tooling support to optimize uptime

One example of a custom solution we engineered is an improved bag roll design that more than doubled the lifespan for one of our bagging customers.

The Challenge: Worn-Out Bag Rolls Causing Wrinkles & Excessive Waste

Our customer uses top and bottom side bag rolls to provide traction and to evenly guide the substrate for producing square bottom bags. The knurled pattern on the rolls wore down over time causing uneven surfaces which resulted in wrinkles in the substrate, misregister printing, and produced excessive waste – all of which drained profitability. They needed a way to increase the longevity of their rolls.

The Solution: An Innovative Coating Design to Eliminate Premature Wear

Our engineering team went to work to analyze sample worn rolls provided by our customer. We tested various coating options and thicknesses to determine the best combinations to achieve high wear resistance and improved traction. The result was a custom formulated coating that more than doubled the lifespan of the rolls on multiple machines without any deviation in size.

The Benefits Derived Include:

  • Increase lifespan by 2.5 times
  • Provide a smoother surface to prevent perforating
  • Offer even wear to maintain precision
  • Prevent wrinkles and misregister printing
  • Reduce waste to improve yields
  • Can be used in a trial period to meet your unique needs
  • Rolls can be recovered over time and have the original roll converted as spare parts

We collaborated closely with the customer through trials at their facility. This ensured the redesigned rolls met their specific needs before going into full production. The customer was able to realize substantial savings on their ROI from reduced waste and extended time between roll replacements.
