Below 1%, this is what asma´s large roller team expects at the end of the day. Nothing is left to chance. When the product does not bear the quality check – no chance: This roller does not leave the company.
Roller-processing has to be learned – apprenticeship and career
“To chance things skilfully is not necessarily the worst.” This is what the five-person team responsible for large rollers at asma suggests. Products for industrial usage as large rollers, application rollers, star wheels, stacker wheels, Vullkolan wheels and many more are twisted, grinded are prepared by this department for distribution. These parts, ranging from 500 to 800 kg in weight, are clamped in the lathe after the casting process to do all the mechanical operations including quality control, packing and preparing for transport on the team´s own responsibility. The trained lathe operators and the cutting machine operators agree, “The foundry can be considered the core of the company. The close collaboration, reliability and accuracy are the most important preconditions for being able to deliver a perfect final product.” Every component is unique. The processing requires a lot of experience, a sense of responsibility as well as an instinctive feeling. The statistics show that the interplay works well, and group dynamics contribute to the result:
“A reject rate of below 1% is our team´s personal target. We are really proud to be able to achieve our goal! “
* Did you know?
Polyurethanes can be dyed in a wide range of shades. It is, however, necessary to consider the influence of the original natural colour of the raw material (usually a transparent honey tone to milky-white) as well as the typical browning effect of standard polyurethanes. Therefore, strong standard colours are very common.
In particular „Vulkollan“ changes its colour under the influence of sunlight from light brown (almost white just after casting) to dark brown, almost black. This would affect any colour added. Therefore, „Vulkollan“is usually offered in its „natural“ tone.
The colour change under exposure to light has no negative impact on the general properties and quality of polyurethanes.
For particular optical applications requiring higher lightfastness we offer special formulations (aliphatic PUR).
