Paper machine calender rolls should deliver uniform contact

Paper Machine Calender Rolls

PRS Tissue manufactures high-quality calendering equipment

Paper converters depend on paper machine calender rolls to provide consistent contact for the precise surface finish and texture required for specific applications. PRS Tissue (formerly Industrial Engraving, LLC), serves as a one-stop shop for customized calendering equipment as well as calender rolls.

Calender rolls function by compressing substrates through multiple pairs of rolls, often in heated thermobond or thermoform applications. Converters also use non-heated calender rolls, depending on the application.

Achieving the proper pressures, dwell times and roll temperatures with a minimal amount of variance is critical in producing consistent results. Configurations for paper machine calender rolls can include:

  • Smooth steel to steel
  • Smooth steel to fiber
  • Smooth steel to rubber
  • Engraved steel to smooth steel
