We Can Help You Decide What Kind Of Repairs Would Benefit Your Rollers With Our Dynamic Roller Repair Services.
JOURNAL REPLACEMENT SERVICES - WE'RE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS:
- Journal installations use special shrink-fit & MIG welded methods, so journals are fully integrated in the roller core
- We never simply weld a new journal to the endplate - our repairs are designed to withstand tremendous pressures
- Menges fabricates new journals using precision CNC machine control technology, so bearings & collars fit perfectly
- Keyways, splines and steps are machined to meet your exact specifications (within a thousandth of an inch)
- For heavier rollers (one of our specialties), we support double-endplate & triple-endplate configurations
Need New Journals
Before: Keyways and bearing surfaces are badly worn. New journals and rollcovers are required. This customer chose Menges because our repairs stand up to their harsh environment..
After: Fully Functional
After: We installed new journals on both rollers, rebalanced, then covered in an ultra-durable urethane. They’re ready to perform in a very demanding mineral processing application.
Paper Industry Roll, Broken Journal
Before: Cracked journals are common, especially for ‘veteran’ rollers. While your roll is here, we'll inspect it for defects & notify you of any required roller repairs.
Journal with Nitrogen for Shrink Fitting
After: Our technicians know every trick in the book for repairing rollers. Nitrogen was used in this case to freeze & shrink the journal on this critical journal replacement.

Old Bolt On Journal
Before: Bold On Journal
This roller originally had a bolt-on endplate and journal. The plant manager was not happy with this and requested our roller repair services.
Improved One-Piece Design
After: Integrated Journal
Re-using the existing core saved money, and the new journal setup is working quite well. Few roller companies have the ability to accomplish roller repairs of this nature.
We fabricated a contiguous endplate-journal that is much less prone to runout and flex.
The new assembly was then integrated into the existing roller core using special techniques.
CHILL ROLLER REBUILDS

If your chill roll has a low flowrate, the inner shell may look like this.
