                                                                                                                                                                  StretchUp Service – Optimization for a longer, trouble-free lifetime!

Within a short service time, conventional spreader rolls can be upgraded by adding our exclusive EvoStretch Bearing with selfhealing function and the high-performance polyurethane sleeve SolarStretch.

EvoStretch Bearing

EvoStretch Bearing with self-healing function

The exclusive EvoStretch Bearing of Voith provides a much higher wear resistance compared to standard bearings. During the operation, surface imperfection can occur. It only takes one or two ceramic balls to eliminate disturbing particles either by crushing them or pressing them into the steel rings – you can almost say the bearing “heals itself”. This process leads to an extended lifetime and a significant reduction of costs.


The high-performance polyurethane sleeve

SolarStretch is a polyurethane sleeve for spreader rolls developed by Voith. Compared to a conventional rubber sleeve it is characterized by twice as high wear resistance and much higher tear propagation strength. Furthermore, SolarStretch shows significantly better dynamic properties. Thanks to the polyurethane, the heat generation in the roll cover under dynamic load is kept to a minimum.
