Cope Engineering (Radcliffe) Limited produce most types of Industrial Rolls for many applications including :
Heat Transfer Rolls, Lehr Rolls,
All types of Paper Mill Rolls,
Rolls to the Converting Industry, Carbon Fibre Rolls,
Handling, Guide, Nip and Transport Rolls and many more.
Below are just some examples of the types of Rolls we produce, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us with your enquiry.
Heat Transfer Rolls
For less demanding applications, we are able to offer a standard roll without a sealed flow path for use where maximum heat transfer may not be required or in replacement situations where high flow rates are already used.
Double or single shell
Spiral or straight fluting
Feed / outlet either end
Steel or aluminium construction
With over 40 years experience, the company has produced a range of rolls for many industries including:
PLASTICS; Film casting drums and sketching rolls, laminating, embossing and treater rolls, steam heater setter rolls.
COATING; Pre-conditioning and cooling rolls, low temperature cooling drums (-30°C), oil heated gravure rolls, high speed oven dryer rolls.
PRINTING; web chill drums
STEEL; Pre-heating laminating rolls.
Typically both the smaller type of cylinder and the those for preprint applications are supplied complete with gears and in accordance with the press manufacturer's specification, in matched sets if required. This ensures the correct wall thickness and that the cylinder has been dynamically balanced and ground, usually with a T.I.R. of 0.0127mm (0.0005") maximum.
Stereo lines can be scribed in line with keyways for correct register, or to your specific requirements.
We can supply cylinders for both gravure and offset-gravure presses, either coppered or turned ready for plating.
