You can also send narrow materials through wide rollers, because the roller material is highly resistant to “indentation”. Consequently, just one machine is all that is required for all sheet metal / coil widths.
Squeeze-on lubricators Maximum efficiency and the highest levels of flexibility Particularly rugged & and long-lasting The ROTOL squeeze-on roller system is a lubricator developed exclusively in house by Eckardt. This is an exceptionally rugged, long- lasting lubricating machine designed to apply lubricant in precisely defined film thicknesses over an entire surface. Thanks to the ROTOL calender rollers our squeeze-on lubricators achieve very high pressures. Thinnest, homogeneous film thicknesses possible. Features & benefits • Far longer service life in comparison with conventional felt rollers • Works with all pumpable lubricants • Achieves thinnest, homogeneous film thicknesses • Very high viscosities possible • Rugged ROTOL calender roller made of non woven material • Practically impervious to mechanical damage • Lubrication media is retained on the surface of the roller; no premature wear resulting from being drawn in How it works Fleece rollers remove cleaning liquid, fo
The gap between the ROTOL calender rollers determines the thickness of the lubricant film. The gap is set by means of a digital display. The settings are allocated a retrievable numerical value. That means it is always possible to reproduce the film thickness precisely - by design.
The surface of the roller is only absorbent to a certain degree; in other words, the applied material does not penetrate deeper into the roller where it could remain as residue. Consequently, the system runs immediately “homogeneously” when the lubricant is changed.
It is possible to use all fluid lubricants through to grease, depending on their viscosity. The medium spreads evenly across the entire width of the roller so that it is possible to guarantee it is applied homogeneously at all times.
