This roller also benefited from our roller grooving services. It is a deep-grooved contact roller, 10 inches in diameter, features a rounded radius cut (as opposed to square cut) on both the groove bottom and land top.
Shallow Herringbone Grooves
Tightly spaced, shallow grooves are often used on very thin web stock, as with these grooved idler rolls.

Circumferential Serration on Silicone
Circumferential serrations, here on a silicone covered roller, allow for a good amount of roller flex, which is important for rollers handling boardly or uneven stock.
Stepped Face Feeder Roll
In some situations, it is preferable to have small contact points with high pressure levels. To stand-up to the increased friction, this pusher roller is covered with Menges Super Tough Coat.
Menges Grooves Large Rollers
Menges Roller is capable of grooving the largest of rollers. This roller is over 28 feet long, and we serrated it end to end with a wrinkle-reducing spiral.
Large Contact Roll
Even though we utilize some of the most advanced computer-assisted machines in the industry, manual quality inspections for every roller is our protocol.
Aluminum Roller with Serrations
Some metal rollers can be grooved or serrated. We applied a thin-groove diamond pattern to this aluminum roller.
Grooves on Aluminum Roller
This aluminum deadshaft roller features a multi-start spiral flute 2 mm deep, machined end-to-end.
Tight Spiral Grooves
This is a precisely-engineered idler, designed to run at high speeds. It has tight thin grooves to help flatten the web.

The proper groove can help you run faster, waste less, and produce better products!
The groove or serration pattern - along with the rollcover compound and crown profile - combine to give your roller its primary performance properties.
From contact rolls with deep herringbone grooves, to spiral serrations on wrinkle removing web spreaders, Menges can finish your roller with the perfect cut. Groove forming is completed using computer-controlled (CNC) machines, for maximum accuracy.
Grooving is usually paired with a new rollcover - in silicone, rubber, urethane, or one of our high-performance synthetic compounds. Services such as crowning, high speed balancing, and neeeded repairs can also be accomplished while your roll is at the Menges Facility.
