Plain press rolls

Achieve high running accuracy at high speeds

Bearings operate at medium to relatively high speeds, sometimes over the speed limit in the SKF General Catalogue in plain press rolls. It is essential that the gap between the press rolls remains constant to help ensure an accurate press nip and good quality paper.

Also some rolls are reground while rotating on the bearings. Again running accuracy of the bearings is important.

For large bearings that run fast, high running accuracy is important. Vibrations from inferior bearings may lead to uneven paper thickness and increased wear on the felt. This results in increased maintenance costs.
