Carbon Fiber Roll Design
A Lightweight Solution That’s Perfect for Low-Load Applications
Carbon Fiber Idler Roller
This is a fairly typical carbon fiber roll. These feature a lightweight composite tube with aluminum or steel inserts, either liveshaft or deadshaft (this is liveshaft).
Rubber Covered Carbon Fiber Roll
For rubber-covered carbon fiber rollers, vulcanizing knowledge is critical. Our technicians know how to prevent tube deformation while generating perfect rubber covers.
Carbon Fiber Roll With Bolt-On Journal
This carbon fiber roller, 10″ x 120″, features steel inserts, bolt-on journals that are manufactured and installed by Menges Roller.
This roller will not be rubber covered and is ready for service.

Rollface Surfacing After Finishing
The rollface has been smoothed and leveled via Menges’ computer-controlled CNC precision finishing service. We offer several surface finish & ‘smoothness’ options on a carbon fiber roll design.
Unfinished Carbon Fiber Roll Cores
These carbon fiber tubes are still raw. Menges will finish the rollface, then fabricate & install jounal inserts. The yellow material is the sacrificial layer key when rubber covering.
Finished Carbon Fiber Tubes
The carbon fiber tubes have been precision ground and feature new deadshaft aluminum inserts.
