Harwood Rubber Products, Inc. can provide all your custom rubber roller needs. Whether replacing, repairing, or fabricating new rollers, Harwood Rubber specializes in delivering cost-effective solutions. We work with your AutoCAD and traditional drawings, but are capable of advanced reverse engineering your existing worn rollers. Rollers may be up to 20’ in length, 48″ in diameter, and weighing up to 3 tons per roll. We welcome small orders including prototype production, and maintain short lead times.

Harwood has a large inventory of roll covering compounds available to quickly respond to your emergencies. We can formulate the covering to your specific service condition and provide you with the most suitable material with the most effective durometer (rubber hardness) ranging from 5 to 100 Shore A. We hold tolerances as close as ±0.001″. Harwood can provide a wide range of grooves, finishes, crowns and tapers. We’ll maintain your exact specifications over your entire order and consistently from order-to-order.

Services include molded parts, prototype work, regrinding, rubber rings/tubes, rubber to metal fabrication, repairing worn or damaged bearing surfaces and specialty pulling lagging. Harwood has worked with a variety of core types including steel, aluminum, titanium, magnesium, brass, and metal alloys, along with a number of non-metallic substrates, such as micarta and linen.

Same day roller regrind service available. Breakdowns take priority. Pick-up and delivery service is available.

Contact us today to learn how your project can benefit from our rubber roller fabrication and repair services.
