Applying inertial roll alignment in the vacuum metalizing industry
During a five-hour PARALIGN service in a vaccum metalizing plant, a total of thirty three rolls were measured and eight rolls were found to be out of alignment and realigned based on the PARALIGN report.
The constant demand for high quality, mass-produced goods leaves manufacturers striving to optimize their machinery while simultaneously reducing production wastes, downtime, and upkeep costs. Machine maintenance is achieved through various combinations of diagnostic systems, measurement methods, installation and repair techniques, and quality controls. Roll alignment maintenance, in particular, is an essential starting point and good investment when improving a machine’s overall
functionality. Performing the alignment reduces the risk of uneven web coatings, excessive wastes, and premature roll and bearing wear.Download the case study
