Our Grinding Process
High-tech tools in experienced hands
A plated roll is not a finished roll. Grinding is a critical step that prepares the chromium plated surface to either accept a specialty finish or be polished to flawless mirror perfection.
At MPP, we bring the latest in technology as well as years of experience to the fine art of grinding chromium plated rolls so that they perform precisely as the customer expects.
MPP is able to grind rolls to surface finishes of 2 Ra and tolerances of 50 millionths TIR (Total Indicator Runout) and shape. That means that the MPP refinished roll will operate as well (or better) than the original roll once it is back in operation at your facility.
Consistently meeting those tolerances requires the latest in grinding equipment and measurement tools. But technology alone won't do the job. A critical element in MPP's precision grinding is the skill and experience of our grinding specialists. There simply is no substitute.
Working To Meet Your Needs
Our goal is to deliver a roll that can be put back on your line and resume operations with no variation in runout, no feedlines, no chatter, and no hard spots. We can also grind the roll in its bearings to eliminate any variability due to installation.
