Menges Rollers Co. of Wauconda, Ill., has developed a hybrid chill roll that uses high-tech, non-corrosive materials, instead of steel, for the inner chamber. That's where the liquid flows on chill roll.
Menges Rollers won a 2013 AIMCAL Award for Technical Excellence for the design, from the Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators.
As a secondary benefit, the chill roll's performance is also enhanced, because the hot/cold energy is directed more toward the roller face, and away from the interior of the roll, the company said.
