Roval is the market leading specialist in cotton rolls and is 100% dedicated to their production. The rovalrolls technology is widely used for the calendering and embossing of paper and textiles.
The process influences the surface characteristics of the paper or fabric (eg gloss, smoothness, lustre), depending on the nip pressure, the roll surface temperature, the process speed and the elastic behaviour of the cotton roll cover.
The achieved effect depends on the engraved pattern relief, nip pressure, roll surface temperature, process speed and the elastic behaviour of the cotton roll cover. The paper or fabric are embossed to enhance their appearance or structure.
The choice of rovalrolls cover material (elastossimo, elastoglaz or silineos) is defined according to the operating conditions of your calender (speed, humidity, temperature, linear load), and taking account of the type of fabric to be calendered (natural, sythetic, nonwoven) and the desired finish (e.g. soft hand, sheen, chintz, reduced permeability). This cover engineering determines the parameters of the cotton roll production and the roll’s efficiency for your specific calendering process.
Rovalrolls sprinks steel shaft technology guarantees the operational safety and geometric precision of the covered roll. Knowing the exact shaft design enables accurate calculation of the required camber for textile and embossing calenders.
These key parameters are continually controlled throughout the production process, allowing instant correct of any out of tolerance. In this way the filled roll is guaranteed without defect, and the uniformity of the linear load profile in the calender nip is assured.
