Hot-vulcanization of rubber on large roller
In this project, RG Rom Gummi has fitted a new layer of rubber on a roller for CIMBRIA. The roller is Ø1.100mm and must be used to pull a large conveyor belt, which means that the load on the rubber is extra hard.
CIMBRIA came to us when they needed a roller that can handle an even greater load than a solution from another supplier where the rubber is glued to the steel core can handle. Thanks to the right type of rubber and a ride in our autoclave (vulcanization oven), CIMBRIA has got a roller that can handle the heavy load. The advantage of vulcanization is that it gives the rubber a much better bond to the steel core compared to if the rubber was glued on. In fact, it is so strong that the rubber is impossible to separate from the steel core.
We specialize in vulcanization and today have 7 autoclaves (vulcanization furnaces), where our largest furnace can vulcanize items up to 10 meters in length. Every day we vulcanize different items with rubber or PUR in different sizes, for very different purposes.
Feel free to contact us without obligation if you are interested in hearing what solutions we can offer within vulcanization of rubber or PUR.
