Rolls are critical parts of your production. When rolls suffer damage or break, it can halt operations and impact your bottom line. This is why it is important to have a spare for your process rolls. Having spare rolls on hand in your facility can save time, money, and stress.
Western Machine Works can design, fabricate, and manufacture a variety of precision rolls, critical rolls, and process rolls based on your requirements, with or without existing manufacturing prints or OEM drawings. Our engineering team can reverse engineer a new roll to match or exceed your current roll’s performance. Our process includes taking detailed measurements of all critical dimensions, creating the CAD drawing, proposal of design enhancements, manufacturing in-house, and managing the process from start to completion.
Western Machine Works has been helping customers meet their production goals through new roll fabrication and manufacturing since 1985.
