Roll Manufacturing

More than 35 years of expertise in designing and manufacturing a wide range of precision rolls and process rolls that meet customer specifications, with or without OEM drawings.

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.
