Roll service and grinding — an investment or line item cost?
Depends on how capable your service provider is
Roll grinding and service is a necessary, albeit expensive, task for manufacturers. But with the right service provider it can be one that yields an impressive ROI.
Rolls that are properly ground and serviced will not only last longer (a huge cost savings in and of itself), they’ll decrease material usage and efficiency-killing variation. And increase product quality. All of which equate to real, quantifiable savings. Which is why roll grinding and service does not have to be purely an expense. It can be and should be considered an investment.
The key lies in the service provider you choose. Are you getting true economic value from them? Can they statistically validate variation reduction in your process? Can they tell you what kind of tolerances they are capable of? In short, do they understand why precision rolls are critical … and are they capable of producing such rolls — rolls that will ultimately fatten your bottom line?
