Intended for use with a job that was already on-press, a commercial printer received delivery of 800,000 lbs of damaged roll stock. Time was critical, and SOS Services, Inc. was able to respond within 12 hours with enough manpower and equipment to quickly restore the damaged cores and help the printer keep the presses running.

These 105" wide jumbo rolls of 45# basis weight gloss coated paper were wound on a 6" fiber core and weighed 6,500 lbs. Using our patented core straightening tools and a shock set hammer, our service crew restored each core's 6" diameter throughout the entire width of the roll.

Each restored core was gauge-checked to ensure accuracy, then quad-plugged to maintain its integrity. We measured the diameter of each repaired roll at 6 different points, verifying that each was within 1/8" of being perfectly round and suitable for use on a high speed press.

Our hard-working crew was able to efficiently and effectively repair the damaged rolls at a pace faster than they were being consumed, enabling the printer to meet its time deadline. Each roll ran through the press without problems - not a single one was rejected for quality issues.

  • Product Description
    Galvanized Steel Coil Pancake Flat ! A steel distributor received a galvanized steel coil that needed to be slit in house then shipped to another customer's location.

  • Capabilities Applied/Processes
    The flat coil was jacked lifted up and held safely in place, while the tension buckle was hydraulically pressed back into place. Steel sleeves or rings were then inserted into the coil to maintain the correct I.D. size. The sleeves then were hydraulically locked into place correcting the shape of the entire coil.
  • Equipment Used to Restore Coil
    10 ton, 25 ton, 50 ton, and 100 ton Hydraulic rams Cold rolled steel rings "Soft coil" safety support system
