Industrial rollers are key components in many types of machinery, particularly in the printing and packaging industry. They are predominantly used to move a variety of product through complex processing equipment but also provide essential support when material is moved through a machine, preventing it from becoming out of place, dislodged, or jammed.
At Hone-All, we have the knowledge, skills, and expertise to tackle complex projects in a range of sectors. As a family-run business that prides itself on teamwork, collaboration, and communication, we’re not constrained by muted ambition; instead, we invest in our teams and technology to ensure the highest quality service for our customers in diverse areas of industry, from aerospace and pharmaceuticals to defence and motorsport.
When you contract your precision machining project to a specialist, you’ll want the process to run as smoothly as possible. To eliminate the risk of problems and to maximise the likelihood that your deadline will be met, you should provide the precision engineer with some important information at the earliest opportunity. This will enable both parties to share a common vision for the project, with any potential issues identified and resolved before fabrication begins.
In this guide, we’ll outline the information you should provide to your CNC machining specialist and explain what to do if you don’t have it to hand.
Think packaging is easy? Think again! There are multiple hurdles to navigate, and one of these is quality. At any stage of a project, quality matters. Sometimes it only matters slightly, and sometimes it matters a lot. A 0.001 mm difference in a deep hole volume might mean nothing on a pushbike but might result in catastrophe for a plane.
Precision rollers must be designed and constructed to precise specifications, as the exacting demands of each system or application can vary enormously. Attention to detail is, therefore, essential and, because it can be difficult to establish the specification required, a thorough understanding of the application - backed by the professional experience of the precision engineer - will help to deliver the perfect solution.
At Hone-All Precision, we specialise in precision rollers for a wide range of industrial applications. Our products are manufactured precisely to your design and machined for optimum efficiency and cost effectiveness. Whether you need 20 identical parts or a single, custom roller for a one-off project, our roller manufacturing process is geared up to provide the highest quality components available on the market.

Trepanning is a machining technique for drilling large diameter holes in materials, particularly where there is a requirement to retain the solid core or when tolerances are not particularly tied up.
When it comes to industrial rollers, it pays to get it right. With the digital revolution causing changes to printing, packaging techniques, and machinery, many of the traditional norms have vanished. This means manufacturers of industrial rollers need to really know what they are doing. Here’s a quick guide to what a decent manufacturer will offer.
Manufacturers in all sectors are under intense pressure to deliver quick results on tight budgets. Your customers expect a fast turnaround and a competitive rate, which you have to achieve with the minimum resources available. It is natural, therefore, to look for areas where economies can be made on the manufacturing process. Industrial rollers are a common target for these cost saving exercises, with the risk that low price is prioritised over quality.
