Cost-effective rollers spread webs, remove wrinkles
Grooved rubber-covered spreader rollers solve the challenge presented by persistent web wrinkling when optimizing machine alignment and roll geometry aren’t enough. The rollers are precision-machined with grooves in several patterns, including herringbone, lateral fluted, spiral/worm or circumferential, in order to stretch and spread web material to lay flat and wrinkle-free. Spreader rollers are available in a variety of rubber coverings to meet specific applications such as solvent resistance, heat resistance and hardness. All rubber-covered spreader rollers are readily available in standard sizes or can be sized, grooved or covered according to a user's specifications.
