- CORES WITH COMPOSITE MATERIALS
Light cores made of composite materials are setting a new bar in the performance and reliability of rollers, and they are an ideal choice for the manufacturing industry.
Using the method of filament winding and suitable qualities of carbon fibers, we can adjust the torsional and static rigidity of cores, depending on the requirements of each process, offering our customers high-performance, affordable rollers.
Composite and multi-layer materials offer clear advantages and, in most cases, they can replace conventional steel and aluminum cores. These advantages include a reduced weight, in combination with increased roller rigidity, which results in a low rotational inertia and a capability of rotating at high speeds.
For demanding applications in paper processing, plastic film and aluminum foil industries, light cores have a direct effect on productivity and quality of the final product.
Cores made of carbon fibers and epoxy resins can be coated both with rubber compounds, and with polyurethane elastomers or other composite coatings. In this way, we can achieve a wider range of applications and we can provide to producers of the manufacturing industry light rollers with anti-abrasion, anti-adhesive, anti-static, acid-resistant or other surfaces.
