Meeting the demands of high-speed processes

At the end of the paper machine, the paper may be subject to further operations depending on what properties the finished product requires. For instance, it may be calendered to enhance its surface properties.

Since operations of this type are often carried out at high speeds, reasonably high demands can be placed on the bearings. Reliability is key, as machinery needs to process the output from the paper machine.
Increase calender roll and reel drum and spool reliability
SKF offers a wide range of solutions for the calender/reel section including:
  • Condition monitoring equipment that helps reduce maintenance costs
  • Tools that help simplify mounting and dismounting
  • High performance bearings that help improve the efficiency and reliability of both heated and unheated plain calender rolls and reel drums and spools
