The world of Rol-Tec began with rubber roll covering in 1991. Why is Rol-Tec now considered the highest tech rubber covering and grinding company in North America? The answer is simple; we have the best compounds, equipment, craftsmen, facility, and service all pulling together to produce the best rollers, the best partnership. Welcome to our world.
Compounds: We use only the finest and most expensive rubber compounds available blended to Rol-Tec's exact specifications. Why do we use the highest priced compounds? Because we save! We save time; better compounds process more easily. We save money; these raw materials lead to less rejects. And we save customers; our customers rarely leave us once they have experienced the performance of a Rol-Tec covering. These savings provide the ultimate rubber covered rollers at or below the price of our competitors. See Compounds »
Equipment: Put simply, we have the best equipment available in the industry. We have the highest tech extruding and rubber grinding equipment anywhere in North America and possibly, the world. Our Remco Twin Spin Extruder is the state-of-the-art applying the finest ribbon without seam lines or "barber pole" patterns. Our extruders run the rubber through a series of screens, filtering out impurities, chunks, or unblended material so only the pure rubber compound touches your core. We then employ Dry Heat Vulcanizers to cure the compounds. These computerized autoclaves allow us to fully cure the rubber without the rusted cores, journals, and metal caused by steam vulcanization. Finally, we employ the best rubber grinding equipment in the world, including a Capco Super Grinder / Super Finisher that allows for touchless polishing and grinding on your bearings. Our new CNC Grinder / Groover has the capability to grind, parabolic crown, and groove your rollers all in one set up. Groove capabilities include chevron and spiral grooved patterns with diameters reaching 31" (787mm) and face lengths up to 280" (7112mm). The computerized equipment can grind, polish and groove almost any desired pattern. See Grinds, Grooves, & Crowns »
Craftsmen: All the best compounds and machinery in the world will not deliver a quality roll…it is the craftsmen who do. We have combined hundreds of years of covering and grinding experience going into each roller we manufacture. These expert craftsmen allow Rol-Tec to do the routine as well as the difficult. We specialize in rubber end capped rollers where the rubber covers not only the face but also the header side, and sometimes the journal of the roller. We also feature Rubber Covered Printing Sleeves, both parallel and tapered print sleeves. We are so proficient at this technology that we are able re-cover sleeves precisely, removing the old rubber cover and carefully applying new rubber to the used composite or nickel sleeve. This would not be possible without true craftsmen. Much of what we do is dictated by machinery and science. However, our rollers are produced by skilled craftsme,n and we have the best in the world!
Service / Quality Control: When you contact Rol-Tec, you will be able to discuss your project with a trained professional — a decision maker who will give you a straight answer. When is my order scheduled to be completed? What should we use in this instance? Can we get it done faster? All of these questions will be answered honestly and by someone who has the authority to get the job done. Quality Control is as simple as saying "No". "No" this roller is not good enough to put the Rol-Tec name on it. "No" this does not meet the agreed upon specifications. We have all the measuring tools available to ensure your parts meet the needed specifications, including a state-of-the-art Laser Measuring System available for close tolerance measurement. We also have a full laboratory at our disposal to help solve the toughest problems. That's service…that's quality.
