Industrial Roller Balancing Services
Run Smooth and Vibration-Free at Any Linespeed
Large Roller for Dynamic Balancing
This roller is over 20 feet long. Although large, it will benefit from our roller balancing services and go through a complete balancing regiment at a fairly high linespeed.
Balancing Unit Screen
Digital indicators pinpoint exact weights & angles of imbalance, for accurate corrections and perfectly balanced rolls.
Large Tube for Pre-Balance
This long tube, for a non-wovens roller, is being balanced. At Menges, we pre-balance all tube before journals are attached, then we re-balance the whole unit at completion.
Balancing in Action
Our roller balancing services use a computer-interfaced roll balancing system, which features integrated photo cells for accurate RPM monitoring. Controls give full rotation control as linespeeds are simulated during testing.
Balancing Rubber Roller
Rubber rollers should be rebalanced when recovered. This contact roll has just been recovered & grooved, so it's now being balanced to our customer's linespeed (2500 RPM/1250 FPM).
Large Rollers Can Be Balanced
The roller has a thick urethane rollcover - over 1" thick across 22 feet is a lot extra weight - so even through the roller was balanced at fabrication it is being re-balanced with the rubber.

BALANCED IS BETTER
Unbalanced rollers result in vibration, poor process results, and potentially wasted stock. Excess vibration can even damage machine components and bearings, increasing expenditures & downtime. With balanced rollers from Menges, you'll run at higher speeds and have better process results.
So call 847-487-8877 or Request A Quote to discuss how you can benefit from our roller balancing services.
Balancing services are important for all types of rollers - rubber covered, solid steel or heat-transfer roll - and balancing should be completed on new rollers as well as those in for service.
All our roller balancing services employ computer-interfaced balancing machines and electronic centrifugal sensors.
Proper balancing of rollers is critical, so speak to a Menges Engineer about balancing your rollers.
There are actually two types of balancing: Static and Dynamic.
Static balancing prevents 'loping,' which is where the roller has a heavy spot and 'turns over' when the line is stopped.
Dynamic balancing prevents the roller from vibrating when in rotary motion. Vibration causes waivering in plastic film, paper and even steel - which can lead to uneven coating, laminating and processing.
