Roll coatings by ASB Industries are the ideal solution for a wide variety of manufacturing industries, such as high production processing in the steel and paper industries which require unique surfaces. Roll coatings are ideal for these applications by adding wear life and reduce maintenance. Roll coatings can be modified to meet the performance and environmental requirements of their specific applications.
Thermal spray roll coatings can be used to noticeably enhance performance for numerous unique situations such as high temperatures, corrosive atmospheres, abrasion, gripping requirements, and oxide debris build-up. Additional post-treatment sealing, oxide layering, and polymer based enhancements can be applied to further improve performance.
ASB Industries inspects critical roll dimensions and evaluate substrate conditions as part of our routine incoming inspection and during processing. We continue to evaluate important aspects of the condition of your roll as the process progresses. When rolls require journal repair including bearing and sealing surfaces, thermal spray and machining will complete your roll back to print specifications.
ASB Industries chooses the ideal tooling and grinding media using our specialty in-house specialty tooling and grinding inventory to work with a variety of thermal spray surfacing materials. During pre and post machining, ASB Industries uses the ideal tooling and grinding media during coating refurbishment when removing used roll coatings to completed thermal spray roll surfaces.
During processing, ASB carefully chooses the ideal blast media, thermal spray powder morphology and set thermal spray equipment parameters to produce the desired surface finishes.
Calibrated surface finish profilometers are used as one of our many quality checks and cross referenced to your specifications. ASB will continuously check your surface finish with a variety of key surface finish measurements based on the processing and unique challenges based on the materials chemistries and hardness.
Roll Coatings by IndustryEach industry presents unique challenges: in the steel industry, ceramic rolls are often used in high temperature annealing processes and abrasive and corrosive environments; in the glass industry, conveyors require unique material compositions to handle fragile materials; the paper industry requires separate rolls for paper forming from wet pulp through drying stages, as well as for cutting and trimming. Other industriesutilize adhesive-applicator rolls, rolls for conveying hard materials such as coal, and myriad other specialized rolls. When conveying light materials such as paper during converting processing, Carbon Fiber Rolls can be protected with wear resistant thermal spray coatings that require reasonable process procedures over the carbon fiber surface. ASB Industries can customize our roll coatings for maximum performance in any application or environment.
We provide complete roll inspection and will notify you of any bearing or seal issues, along with an overall pre-inspection evaluation that will allow you to choose the best processing procedure for your needs. Our unique finishing capabilities, including diamond grinding, are part of the critical coating system procedures which provide a completed part.
