Calender Rolls

WALZEN-IRLE-Kunststoff_Gummi WI_Logo_3cmRolls for the rubber and plastic industry Rolls are a central success factor for a profitable production of strip and foil goods made of plastic and rubber mixtures. IRLE rolls are used in the following rolling mills of the rubber and plastic industry: in crushing roll mills, refining mills and mixing mills, in reverse roll coaters and in calender roll mills. The properties of the rolls for the plastic and rubber industry have to be adjusted to the respective application conditions. The following important points must be heeded:

  • breaking strength from journals and core material
  • thermal conductivity
  • surface quality and wear resistance of the roll barrels
  • machining of
    • barrels and journals
    • barrel shape
    • surface quality
    • cold- and warm concentricity values


The production success of the whole plastic and rubber production using rolling processes depends upon the perfect quality of these properties and last but not least the marketability of those plastic and rubber products.
