The company is placing a particular focus on demonstrating the advantages that its products offer and why INOMETA has over 35 years’ worth of experience as an innovation and technology partner in the films industry. What makes the difference and what details are important in the production of CFRP and aluminium roller products for film production.
It’s all about details, about precision and about the smallest nuances – this is what makes the difference. Thanks to our many years of experience in the development and production of precision rollers for a wide range of industries and applications, today we have extensive expertise in a wide range of applications. This level of experience is unique on the market, and puts us at an advantage when it comes to knowledge about film production processes – where the smallest details make the difference. We use highly precise components and produce along the value chain – from the tube, to the finished web guide roller through to the surface coating – everything from a single source and Made in Germany. Precisely defined processes, qualified experts and a highly organised quality management system enable us to produce durable products that our customers can fully rely on.
We equip machines with components that are optimally designed for the applications of our customers. In the form of a precisely produced roller with a functional coating, which has been tailor-made and customised for the relevant application in accordance with specifications. The construction and technical properties of CFRP and aluminium rollers are designed in accordance with individual requirements. To be more precise, our application analysis involves recording all process parameters in order to produce an optimised CFRP roller for the relevant application. This analysis can include criteria such as the web tension, contact force, production speed and weight, as well as specific surface requirements. This process results in a precision roller that reliably and faultlessly performs its task.
More than 25 years ago, INOMETA entered the market as a pioneer in the production of lightweight CFRP (carbon fibre-reinforced plastic) rollers and has helped shape the films industry as well as many other industries. The customer-specific and tailor-made development of CFRP rollers is one of the qualities that sets us apart. The reason for this is that the use of CFRP as a material enables different properties to be achieved with the same geometries. This means that we are able to achieve maximum levels of rigidity and strength while keeping weight to a minimum. Furthermore, the vibration damping and thermal expansion properties (which are generally already very good) can be precisely adjusted thanks to the carbon fibre material. When it comes to the design of rollers made of CFRP, all of these properties open up limitless possibilities and opportunities to create products that sustainably improve production processes.
Our standard aluminium web guide rollers are based on a simple principle. It is a modular system in which all components are available in high and reproducible quality. This system has a sophisticated design with extremely smooth running, which has been deployed at thousands of sites around the world and guarantees high levels of reliability and productivity. Due to the wide range of projects in recent years, we have developed an extensive product portfolio. As a result of this, we now have the right standard solution on hand for a wide range of applications.
We have a high-performance machine pool with product-specific manufacturing methods. This means that we are able to offer our customers a wide range of product families with a broad spectrum of possible applications. As part of our production processes, we use state-of-the-art CNC lathes and machines, grinding machines and finishing machines. We are able to achieve this high product quality by continuously improving and optimising our production methods and processes. We regularly invest in new manufacturing methods, which improve our products, have a positive effect on delivery capacity or make our processes more economical.
Our company is certified in accordance with the ISO 9001 quality management system. Independent experts regularly review our processes according to strict quality criteria. Furthermore, the requirements that we impose on ourselves ensure that we provide a consistently high level of quality that can be reproduced again and again.
