Dixie Precision manufactures new rollers, fabricate cores, repairs and refurbishes existing rollers. 

Our Roll shop is laid out in a horse shoe formation.  Incoming rollers follow this horse shop pattern for an efficient processing.

Rolls are inspected and dissambled if needed. , If necessary  journals are repeaired. Bearings are removed if appropirate.  If the surface is deemed grindable the roll will be reground.  If the cover is not regrindable then the roll will neet a new rubber covering.  The rubber will be milled to your specs, the freshly milled rubber will be applied to your roller and then cured in our large autoclaves.  After the curing process the industrial roller  is given a finish grinding and/or polishing. If your roller requires balancing it can be done at this point.There is a final inspection and roll is re-assemblied and properly crated to withstand transportation.    see more rubber roller information and photos at:
