Roll Reconditioning with Black Bros. Co.

Black Bros. Co. has been reconditioning rolls for over 90 years. We manufacture the entire roll – steel core, to rubber covering, to roll finish specifications. We will recondition your roll to ensure proper coating weights and eliminate costly coating waste. For maximum roll performance, we urge you to return your rolls to Black Bros. Co. periodically for reconditioning. Rolls will be reground or recovered, worn shafts and journals rebuilt, and end flanges replaced as necessary.

Worn Rolls Cause Coating Material Waste

The following are calculations of waste material based on normal production in a mid volume manufacturing environment:

  • • 1 gallon / day of PUR = $9,746 / year
  • • 1 gallon / day of LMC = 7,230 / year
  • • 1 gallons / day of PVA = $2,680 / year

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
