Miami Machine, Inc. reels are installed on paper machines producing a variety of grades.
Miami Machine, Inc. has designed reel spools to run at 10,000 fpm.
Miami Machine, Inc. also provides reel spool inspection and service.
These are often the most abused journals on the entire paper machine.
Reel spools experience rotational speeds that may be twice the machine’s operating speed, as well as brake torque reaction stresses. They are subject to impact loads from being let down “less than gently” on stands and rails.
Many prudent mills have initiated annual preventive maintenance service contracts to keep their reel spools in excellent operating condition.
Miami Machine, Inc. has been heavily involved with roll service since 1972. We can handle rolls up to 80 tons, 72” Dia. x 500” Long. Miami Machine, Inc. routinely disassembles rolls and inspects roll journals and roll shells, using conventional and non-destructive diagnostic techniques.
These inspection services help our customers to reduce costs and preserve capital equipment by taking a proactive approach to journal and shell failure. Eliminating these unscheduled events avoids damage to costly felts and wires.
