Custom Core Support Roller

N.E.T. & Die, Inc. manufactured the core support roller shown here for use in converting equipment. Material of construction was ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene - its low friction and high wear properties made it an ideal choice for this machinery application. We carefully choose plastic-specific cutting tools and applied them at low pressures to remove material cleanly and accurately. By programming the optimal spindle speed on our Mori-Seiki horizontal turning center, we were able to form the contours to within tolerances of ±.001" while also achieving a 125 RMS surface finish.

Once completed, the roller featured an outer diameter of 2.25", inner diameter of 0.80", and measured 3.7" in length. Dimensional and visual inspections confirmed that we satisfied the requirements of the customer’s specifications. We currently produce these components in quantities from 10-1000 units/order within a two-week timeframe.
