Roller Press Refurbishment

optimize your business

your partner in roller refurbishment

• fast roller refurbishment • flexible, work can be performed inside the machine -
• re-weld two rollers at the same time no dismantling required
• on-site • reliable
• reduce downtime

Keeping your rollers in good condition is critical to longer rol-

ler life as well as for high machine availability and throughput.
For years, KHD has provided Roller Press Refurbishing (RPR)
services at our workshops in Cologne and Delhi. Now, with
the development of our mobile re-welding equipment, we
are able to bring that same quality and performance to your
plant site. With our new mobile RPR service, not only do we
bring the refurbishing process to you but we further minimi-
ze downtime with our ability to refurbish both rollers at the
same time, without removing them from the machine.


KHD’s group vision and mission are based on achieving

the highest quality with the highest levels of qualification
for our employees. With a large installed base of Roller
Presses and over 155 years of experience in the cement

transport to site
KHD welding tools and equipment are transported to
site in two 20ft containers where they can easily COLOGNE
be unloaded using either a large forklift or crane.
The containers should be stored as close to
the welding location as possible and can be
unloaded manually.

It’s very important to start work on a clean roller, this reduces the likelihood
of impurities entering the weld, which may lead to quality issues with the
finished roller. We use a vacuum sandblasting system that ensures the
maximum safety of the user and allows other work to continue around the
machine, therefore causing minimum disruption.

Before welding it is important to evaluate the current condition of Depending on the measurements, we can decide if it is best to

automated plasma leveling
With our plasma cutting process we can level the surface of the
roller without the use of carbon electrodes. This gives us a level
roller surface which can be directly welded on, depending on
the initial condition of the roller and the crack development in
the roller ground material.

Unlike traditional carbon electrodes this process is fully

automated, making it much faster and easier to carry
out. It also helps reduce the consumables used during
the removal of the remaining hardfacing.

If the roller has worn reasonably level and is in good condition, but
the hardface is worn out, then it is not necessary to plasma cut the
roller. The normal method of roller grinding can be applied. For this we
provide industrial belt grinding machines that are capable of removing
large quantities of material in a relatively short amount of time, when
compared to grinding wheels. This, combined with the greater width
provided by the grinding belt, ensures the fastest possible grinding
method for the rollers.

unrivaled preheating
Preheating is completed by our specially built induction units and coils. It is possible to heat
the complete roller at 30˚C/hour to reach the required welding temperature within a single
shift. KHD induction units can simply be plugged in, eliminating the dangers of working with
gas bottles and hoses. The cables and induction coils never become hot, eliminating the dan-
ger of burning and reducing hot air flow to the bearings, thus minimizing the risk of damage to
the bearing during the welding process.

Welding on site can be carried out using different processes, according to your requirements.
The preferred method is to use open arc welding wire as it is more efficient, but gas shielded
wires can also be used. In order to increase the speed of welding, we use two independent
welding heads. This gives us the option to continue welding in the event that one machine
has a breakdown. When both machines are running we can weld at double the speed.
We can also weld with oscillation and do fully automated profile welding.
