Solid and Tubular ConstructionFor The Printing, Converting & Packaging Industries
Even tough slitter rollers technically can be repaired, they are often riddled with deep grooves and other surface issues that make them difficult to repair or to apply coatings properly. Of course, we are happy to consult with our clients about repairing their slitter rollers, but we are often contracted to manufacture new slitter rollers instead, using our proprietary process which yields performance that meets or exceeds the OEM standards.
Avoid costly downtime with MGF!
Slitter rollers, also known as Hardened Anvil, Crush or Work rollers, are key components for slitting rolls of material. Folders and slitting equipment can be bottlenecked if the rollers are not properly maintained. Avoid costly downtime with our new Slitter Roller that has been shown to achieve up to 2.5+ times the life of OEM standards.
These new rollers undergo a Cryogenic Treatment that extends the benefits of heat treating. An optional Armoloy finish can be applied to increase the surface hardness to 78Rc.
Cryogenic Treatment Enhances the Performance of Metals
Cryogenic treatment, which is sometimes called cryogenic tempering, utilizes ultra-cold temperatures to modify the micro-structure of metals and other materials. It has been widely adopted as a cost reduction and performance enhancing technology post- heat treated. It is also used as an enabling technology when its stress relieving benefits are utilized to permit the fabrication (or machining) of critical tolerance parts. The cryogenic treatment process uses sub-zero temperatures down to – 300ºF to modify the micro-structure of the material. Cryogenic treatment promotes additional transformations in metals. It ultimately improves the performance of the metal.
Treated metal benefits:
- Relieves residual stresses
- Promotes a more uniform grain structure
- Resistance to wear
- Improved thermal properties
This is a low temperature, precision engineered finishing process that produces very thin deposits resulting in very hard, slippery, and corrosion-resistant surfaces.
- This process can be added to improve surface hardness – 78 RC and higher
- Reduced friction and wear
- Enhance corrosion resistance
- Withstands temperatures of 400 F to 1,600 F
- Low processing temperature
- FDA and USDA approved for use in food applications, medical, pharmaceutical, and clean room environment applications.
Additional applications: This Armoloy Coating can be an added process to heat-treated surfaces, cylinders, slitters, threaded components, linear rails and blocks, and many more.
