Roll-Kraft Adds Electrical Discharge Machine


Roll-Kraft has installed a new Electrical Discharge Machine (EDM) on the factory floor at the headquarters facility in Mentor, Ohio. This is the fourth EDM machine at this location and is by far the most technologically advanced. The new machine will allow Roll-Kraft to cut 2-4 times as many rolls in the same amount of time as previous machines.  

Roll-Kraft manufactures steel rolls for the tube and pipe and roll forming industry. Many custom-made rolls require keyways and other more intricate profiles to be cut into their rolls. Using more traditional techniques, like broaching, to cut tool steels, was very difficult, time-consuming, and not as accurate as the EDM technology. The EDM process saves time and provides excellent, repeatable results. Roll-Kraft prides itself on quality, and the investment in this new machine guarantees the continuation of that tradition.  

Roll-Kraft has its headquarters in Mentor, Ohio, and maintains other facilities in Lombard, Illinois (Chicago Roll Company); and Ontario, Canada (Roll-Kraft Ltd.). Calls to the company’s main line, (888) 953-9400 or (440) 205-3100, are greeted by a live operator who can assist callers in quickly reaching a technician, engineer, or sales staff, who can provide immediate assistance. The company’s fax number is (440) 205-3110.
