Rolls:                     HÄHL is manufacturing rolls in a variety of configurations, construction features and surface designs. The dimensions rank from max. diameter 1,250 mm (49.2″) up to max. 13,000 mm (511.8″) face length and from max. diameter 3,000 mm (118.1″) to max. 6,000 mm (236.2″) face length at a maximum weight per unit of 20 t.

The variety of roll types can be distinguished according to their configuration as single-shell construction, solid roll, double-shell as well as special constructions. Rotating mandrels, pressure tanks, etc. are also classified according to their main construction features. Application fields of our rolls are foil, metal, printing, paper, textile, non-wovens, and the plastic industry. We are also serving customers of further industry fields.
