After being cut in our long-items inventory, the sections for the axles are taken to the turning shop, which - in addition to welding and assembly of the rollers - is a core process of our production.
The tubes will be initially transported to the welding shop, where they will be later pressed and welded to the housing and eventually find their way to our high-precision CNC machines in the turning shop.
Here, at the center for turning, milling and further machining, we produce the basic components for rollers with a diameter up to 500 mm and a length of up to 4,000 mm.
Axles and tubes are on principle machined in a clamping set. This ensures that the bearing seats of axle and tubes are always prefectly aligned.
This geometric advantage is extremely important for the longevity of the roller.
