Valmet's roll grinding services provide precise profile and roundness shapes for roll and cylinder surfaces for board and papermaking. Maximizing the roll grinding precision means extended roll running times and minimal vibration.
At Valmet, grinding targets are customized according to each customer's specific requirements using advanced 3D measurement technology. Whenever possible, Valmet grinds the rolls with their roll bearings on the roll axis. This allows 3D measurement of the roll in its actual running condition.
Valmet's 3D measurement system is capable of measuring the precise roundness profile of a roll. Connecting it to a grinding head with 3D compensation allows almost perfect roundness to be achieved.
For our customers, a professional grinding service means reliable runs and cost-effective production. Knowledge and experience of Valmet's local grinding operators combined with our sophisticated equipment and truly precise 3D grinding methods enable us to continuously exceed our customers' requirements.
