Roll-Kraft is pleased to announce the addition of a Faro Edge measuring arm to its inspection area. The unit will aid in providing more accurate and efficient service to Roll-Kraft customers.

Roll-Kraft is a manufacturer of roll tooling used by tube & pipe and roll forming companies to produce a large variety of products. Often, customers will need a new roll, but will have no prints or drawings to use for manufacturing. The Faro Edge measuring arm will be helpful in analyzing the needed data to develop an accurate drawing. This reverse-engineering process will be less time-consuming than previous methods.

In addition, the arm will be used to inspect tube and pipe and roll forming rolls coming to Roll-Kraft for reconditioning. The unit will speed up the process of obtaining measurements and will download that information electronically for use by the engineering team. This information will be useful in determining wear patterns and areas that are out of spec.

As another value, the arm is portable and can be used by a Roll-Kraft technician on-site at the customer's facility to determine the proper alignment of their tooling on their mill, so their setups will be accurate and will allow for quick tooling changeovers.

Roll-Kraft expects the Faro Edge measuring arm to aid in the ability to verify product quality and identify problem situations for its customers before they become major. This will allow Roll-Kraft to continue its goal of providing top-notch products and services to the tube & pipe and roll forming industry.
