A Nip Roller For Every Industry
Pinch Rolls, Nip Rolls, & Squeegee Rolls From Menges Roller Company
Two Small Nip Rollers
These two small crowned rollers will work together in a narrow-web nipping system. Unlike most crowns, which are usually just a few microns, these are actually quite visible in a nip roller situation.
Computer Controlled Precision Crowning
Precision is critical when forming crowns. Small increments make a big impact. We use CNC controls to form crowns as small as .001 inch (a thousandth of an inch).
Highlight Of Roller Crown
Deflection is a common problem in many nip roller systems. It’s partially caused by extreme pressure being applied at the roller ends, creating a bow in the middle. This causes uneven material contact.
Highlight Of Parabolic Crown
To compensate for the pressures of deflection, a precision parabolic crown is formed on the rollcover. Rely on the Menges Engineers to calculate a crown profile that meets your unique nip system specs.
LET'S GET STARTED!
- Fabrication: Menges Roller manufactures new nip rollers for OEMs and ‘exact-fit’ spares for plants / end-users
- Design Services for Nip Systems: Our computer models determine optimal roll specifications & crown dimensions
- Crown Forming: CNC machines can form precision parabolic crowns on any rubber-covered roller
- Nip Pressure Measurement: Menges Proof-Nip Impression Paper shows areas of high & low nip pressure
FILLING ALL YOUR NIP ROLLER NEEDS
New Nip Roller
This new nip roller is a replacement for a large packaging plant. The rollcover is Super Tough Coat (developed by Menges) and features a .003 parabolic crown.
Special Nip Roller For OEM
Menges often builds new nip rollers for packaging machine OEMs and our technician is finishing one here. The custom yellow core and Viton cover were special requests.
Nip Rollers Before Recovering
It’s often desirable to recover both squeegee rollers at the same time. These are ready for covers and parabolic crowns.
Nip Rollers After Recovering
Menges Roller has now recovered both squeegee rollers with a 60 durometer black hypalon and applied a .005″ crown.
Nip Impression Paper From Menges
Menges' Proof-Nip Impression Paper: If you’re seeing uneven nip results, you need to try this product.
Our nip impression paper measures your nip pressure, clearly showing areas of high & low pressure, allowing corrective actions to be taken.
Testing Nip Roller Strength
Due to the tremendous pressure nip rollers encounter, Menges has developed computer technology that measures nip pressure & nip roller strength. This helps us build sufficiently-strong rollers with the proper crown dimensions.

LET’S GET ROLLING!
Nip systems play a critical role in many key processes. Bad nipping results are a real problem. So don’t take chances with crowns, new nip rolls, or re-cover choices – get it right the first time with Menges!
Nip systems, squeegee rollers, or pinch rolls – different names, same concept: two rollers with stock running between.
Nipping principles may seem fairly simple, but achieving the correct pressure, evenly across the web, can be difficult. Many factors play a part: the rollcover, its crown profile, the nip system’s pressure & alignment settings, and so on.
Menges’ Engineering staff understands all these factors and will improve the performance of your nipping system. We’ll help you choose the most appropriate rubber chemistry, durometer, and parabolic crown dimension.
And we can test your nip pressure with our special pressure-sensitive Proof Nip Impression Paper. Menges engineers even use computer technology to test the strength of nip roller journals & components.
If you simply have a worn nip roller needing a recover, we’re ready to oblige. You’ll love our quick turnaround times.
