February 15, 2019 – Voith now offers bowed spreader roll repairs and rebuilds to the North American paper mill market with the establishment of spreader roll services at its West Monroe, Louisiana, facility.

The company has formed a dedicated spreader roll team to resolve customer issues.

"Our West Monroe facility is at a convenient shipping location for most paper mills across the United States, allowing our customers to reduce freight costs and limit downtime," says Richard Berry, senior vice-president sales, Voith Paper Fabric & Roll Systems, North America. 

To prepare for its new spreader roll workshop in North America, Voith invested in new equipment designed for rebuilds and repairs and added it to its West Monroe plant.

For customers needing new spreader rolls, the company offers EvoStretch, a spreader roll that uses a high-performance ceramic bearing to creates a "self-healing" effect through smoothing the bearing races.

SolarStretch, a polyurethane sleeve for spreader rolls, is twice as abrasion-resistant as standard rubber sleeve, the company says. Metal-surfaced rolls, including chrome-plated and tungsten carbide-coated rolls, are also available.
