The advantages of carbon fibre rollers
Whether it’s plastic foil, paper or aluminium foil being wound and cut to various lengths, we can produce the most efficient, lightweight rollers for your business. Carbon fibre has a lower density compared to steel, producing lighter weight tubes that can rapidly reach a higher speed, and can also be stopped more quickly than heavier steel rollers.
Carbon fibre also offers a variable, tight tolerance and stiffness-to-density ratio, which is critical when combating issues of deflection in rollers. We are able to manufacture lightweight carbon fibre rollers that have a higher stiffness than steel along with reduced deflection and vibration, leading to higher specification production than traditional rollers. We also offer high specification in-house balancing.
Surface treatments and coatings
EMS is one of the very few suppliers who can offer all the surfaces and coatings on a carbon fibre core required for any application. Our resin composite experience and our large high spec research and development department allows us to offer a bespoke service for each customer, with all the in-house capabilities of large scale production.
Carbon fibre allows machines to run faster with lower energy consumption and greatly increased output than steel or aluminium. We can refurbish existing equipment, replacing older, less efficient rollers with modern composite rollers.
