How to recondition cylinders for the milling industry

Behind the creating a milling cylinder, it is important to recondition it and keep it usable for different types of uses. Not all industrial cylinders serve the same purpose, and in other articles we took into account the different rollers to be used. In this case, it's time to talk about how to recondition cylinders for the milling industry.

Reconditioning phases

Cylinder Preparation

In the first place, we must transport the different cylinders already created and nuanced to another ship or room, where they will be reconditioned. Later, they will be applied a quality inspection. This is based on: the exhaustive revision of the internal components, the joints and grooves, in addition to the friction wear on the base of the main shaft. Then it will go to the next phase: rectifying and nuanced of the cylinders.

Roll grinding for the milling industry

The concept of rectifying involves trying to clean up the quality of the cylinders as much as possible. In this case, we seek to polish all the important areas of the cylinder so that there is no margin for error when certain machinery comes into operation. The rectified ones, in addition, are often used a lot to repair damaged and worn cylinders. Normally the manufacturer usually applies up to 4 rectifications with sets of pistons and of different sizes (in millimeters).

Roll matting for the milling industry

The nuanced of the cylinders allows to give the perfect roughness for a correct operation. This will depend on the use that is given to the machinery to which the appropriate cylinders will be used.

Reconditioning and final review

Finally, it's time to recondition the cylinders to the use that will be given to them in the future. In this part, different types of mechanisms, brakes and axles will be used that will test the quality of our materials. Normally, the shafts are usually introduced in an installation where the intensity of pressure and friction will be measured. Depending on the use of each cylinder, they will be reconditioned in one way or another; that is, if will apply a level of pressure and force different, fitting with its structure and fittings.

Once this test has been passed, it is important to highlight the results. On the one hand, there will be good quality cylinders, stable and do not need a material polishing. On the other hand, it may other cylinders have not withstood the friction or force and it will be necessary to recheck all its components to find where the fault is.

The importance of marketing a functional cylinder

It is vitally important to work with top quality materials and convert them into functional cylinders ready for transport and use. At Talleres Mediavilla we have an entire milling legacy since the beginning of the 20th century and our experience makes us very knowledgeable about all kinds of processes. Among these processes, one of our specialties is reconditioning cylinders for the milling industry, in addition to the creation, rectification and shading phase.
