ECOROLL tools and machines finish metal surfaces by forming of the boundary layer. One or more rollers mounted in a tool are pressed against the surface of a component so that the material flows and the peak-to-valley height is levelled. Either the tool or the work piece rotates, or both, depending on the type of machining This machining smooths the surface and increases the service life of the component. According to the application the process is called roller burnishing (smooth surface finish), or deep rolling (extend service life).
Because of the great economy of this process and the improved quality of product, ECOROLL tools and machines are used in numerous industries. The smooth surface finishes are suitable e.g. for seal counter faces. The increased fatigue strength prevent material fatigue and failure of highly stressed components in machinery, vehicles, aircraft and power stations and in medical engineering.
In addition to this the unique HG tool series was further enhanced. The rolling force of these so-called "ballpoint" tools is applied via one (or more) hydrostatically mounted ball which is pressurized from the reverse side and pressed against the metallic surface like a ballpoint pen on paper. The ball is practically frictionless and free to move on all sides. These tools allow themselves to be easily adapted to the work piece and thus enable machining of complex contours and free-formed surfaces.
ECOROLL AG also provides roller burnishing and deep rolling machines for particular applications. These machines are suitable for centerless roller burnishing or deep rolling continuous cylindrical rods or shouldered components or concave fillets on screws as well.
At ECOROLL AG Werkzeugtechnik there is an uncompromising effort to focus on the customer and to innovate, since at the end of the day the customer is our employer. Thanks to the customer interest and cooperation of each and every employee and representative ECOROLL is able to improve its position in the market every year with constant developments and new applications. And the story continues...
Milford, Ohio, USA is HQ of ECOROLL Corporation, the subsidiary company founded in 2004. This suburb of the metropolis Cincinnati is located in the immediate vicinity of many companies in which ECOROLL tools and machines could be deployed to full advantage. To be locally present is crucial in order to provide American as well as German customers in USA the kind of service they require.
The strongest industries in the Mid-West not only include machine and systems engineering and the automotive industry but aerospace too. In the automotive industry for example crankshafts are deep rolled; in the aerospace industry aircraft wheel rims and engine components machined with ECOROLL tools.
ECOROLL Corporation makes fast deliveries possible and reinforces the service provided to American customers. In this way ECOROLL solutions can be developed specifically for individual customers, machines and work pieces.
