Roll Tooling Reconditioning
Roll tooling wears down after production runs and mill downtime is results in lost revenue. Investing in a roll tooling reconditioning program can greatly improve the life span of your roll tooling as well as greatly reduce the overall cost of production runs.
Extend Tooling Life Span
By sending your roll tooling set in for reconditioning, you will be extending the total life span by having the original, correct contour turned back into the roll profile.
Reduce Tooling Costs
Tooling costs decrease as the overall life span of the roll increases. More production runs out of your existing tooling reduces the requirement to purchase new tooling.
Fast Turn-Around Time
Because tooling only needs to typically be hard-turned, the lead time on reconditioning a set of tooling is substantially reduced from a new set.
Developing a Reconditioning Program
It is a great idea to develop a standard roll maintenance program. Because every tube mill is different, the need for regrinding depends on products run, lengths of run, etc. Many companies send rolls in after a certain footage of run time based on their past experience running product. You will always find that you will have less downtime and produce a more consistent quality product if your rolls are in good condition from being proactive.
