Roll Engineering

We realize your roll concept

Whether it is materials, mechanics or management, at MITEX we support you in the use of rolls in your application and strive to offer our customers added value through real process improvements. If the solution is not obvious, we offer a holistic development process from requirement determination to delivery.

In addition to modern measurement technology and FEM calculation tools, test benches are available to put prototypes through their paces. After the implementation of a project, we accompany the use of the roll and are available for further improvement approaches.

From the idea to the project

We use our many years of experience in a wide range of industries to draw up precise specifications for your idea. In close dialog with you, we define the prwoject frameork and can offer you exactly what you want and need.

Individual material development

As a competent partner, MITEX offers you a wide range of different high-performance materials which have been developed and tested in our own R&D department. The production of these materials also takes place in our own mixing plants. Our engineers and technicians will be happy to advise you on the selection of the right material.

If no suitable material is available for a special requirement, we can promptly develop a tailor-made solution for your application conditions in our technology center.

Reverse engineering of your existing roller

You need a replacement for your existing roll or a technical drawing, but you do not have a technical description of the roll core and coating? We would be pleased to offer you the examination of the existing coating as well as a comprehensive measurement of your roll core. We will then prepare a complete drawing of the core for you and offer to manufacture a new roll based on the existing roll.

Simulation-based design

With the help of modern FEM software, coatings can be optimally designed for your application in terms of material, wall thickness, hardness and geometry. If the existing boundary conditions are not known, we offer to measure them on site.

Measure, characterize and test

We test coatings and their properties and suitability on our roll test stands. Especially at high loads and speeds or in contact with aggressive media, testing is recommended to avoid cost-intensive plant downtimes. Our selection of measuring instruments for determining the mechanical, electrical and chemical properties allows us to make a targeted material selection in advance.
